Marijuana Possession Charges in Charlack, MO - for as little as $450
Have you recently been charged with marijuana possession in or near Charlack, MO (or somewhere in the St. Louis area)? If so, did you know that you have more options than simply pleading guilty to the charge? Did you realize that by pleading to the charge as is, you could be doing lasting harm to your future? Was the amount of marijuana more or less than 35 grams? Did the police officer conduct a legal search when he or she found the substance? If you do not know the answers to these questions, do you know that is far better to contact an experienced attorney?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
Understanding your rights is an essential component when you are talking about criminal defense. But most people simply choose to plead guilty rather than explore those options. They assume that the only thing they can do is to accept the charges as is, and try to deal with the consequences. If you decide to go that route, you should know that the state of Missouri has some of the toughest drug laws in the country.
As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding marijuana possession went into effect:
- If you are caught with less 10 grams of marijuana, it is a Class D Misdemeanor (unless you’ve already been convicted on a prior possession charge, in which case it would be a Class A Misdemeanor).
- If you are caught with between 10 – 35 grams, it is a Class A Misdemeanor.
- If you are caught with between 35 grams – 30 kilograms, it is a Class C Felony.
And then of course you would have to deal with the future consequences as well. Having a drug charge on your record can make things very difficult for you to get a good job, a decent apartment, or even a student loan. But our firm would seek to either get the charges dropped altogether, or get the charges reduced to a lesser infraction.$450 To Take Care of Most Misdemeanor Marijuana Charges
