WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
For most people in Edmundson MO, pleading guilty seems to be the easiest route to take when a marijuana charge is leveled against them. But making this decision can have serious consequences.
As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding marijuana possession went into effect:
1. 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)
2. If you are caught with between 10 – 35 grams, it is a Class A Misdemeanor
3. If you are caught with between 35 grams – 30 kilograms, it is a Class C Felony
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
A plea of guilt to these charges will also have long lasting effects for your future as well. Getting a good job, obtaining a commercial driver’s license (CDL), or even securing a student loan, can all be made more difficult if you have a drug charge on your permanent record.
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
But at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we have a much different idea of what the outcome should be. We want to accomplish one of two things: 1) get the charges dropped; or 2) get the charges amended (reduced) to some minor infraction (so that it does not show up on your record at all). Either of these options are far superior to the alternative.
