Marijuana Possession Charges in Concord, MO - for as little as $450
Were you recently charged with possession of marijuana in or near Concord, MO (or in the St. Louis area)? Was the amount of marijuana found more or less than 35 grams? Did the police officer find the drugs on your person, or in some other place (like a vehicle or house)? Do you know if in fact the officer performed a legal search when he or she found the marijuana? Did you know that if you simply plead guilty to the charge, there are serious long term consequences? Are you aware that an experienced attorney can handle your case for you?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
The fact of the matter is that unfortunately, most people do nothing more than plead guilty when charged with possession in Concord MO. But choosing this option can put very difficult obstacles in your path later on in life. You can have trouble getting a decent paying job; you can have difficulty securing a student loan (let alone get into college); or you could even find it hard to get into a rental contract on an apartment.Pleading Guilty to the Charge Is Not Your Best Option!!
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.
If all of that sounds like something you would wish to avoid, then it is probably time to contact us. At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we seek to have one of two things accomplished: 1) get the charges dropped (usually this is done if the police officer performed an illegal search); or 2) get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (to something like “littering”).
