Have you recently been charged with possession of marijuana in or around Ellendale, MO (or in the general St. Louis area)? Was the amount found more or less than 35 grams? Are you going to plead guilty? Did you know that you have other options available to you? Did you know that an experienced attorney can often get the charges reduced to a minor infraction?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
Most people in Ellendale MO mistakenly believe that pleading guilty to the charge of marijuana possession is the best thing to do. They do this because they are unaware of any other option. At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we seek to accomplish one of two things: 1) get the charges dropped altogether (usually because the police officer performed an illegal search to find the drugs); or 2) get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (to something like “littering,” which does not even show up on your permanent record).Pleading Guilty 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.
And of course the long term lingering effects of a drug conviction can have devastating results. For instance, there are certain jobs you will not be able to get; there are certain licenses you may not be able to obtain; and there are certain student loans you may have trouble securing. So it is far better to hire an experienced attorney to help you.
