It really is too bad that most people in Des Peres MO plead guilty to the charge of marijuana possession. People normally plead this way because they do not know or understand what their full range of options is. They do not know what their Constitutional rights are. And they believe that by pleading guilty, they will end everything much more easily. But the opposite is actually true.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.
Plus, you can also expect to see long term effects of pleading guilty as well. For instance, getting a decent job in the future can be difficult, getting an apartment can prove to be arduous, and obtaining a student loan can even be hard. All because of a guilty plea.$450 To Take Care of Most Misdemeanor Marijuana Charges
