Marijuana Possession Charges in Fenton, MO - for as little as $450
Have you been charged with possession of marijuana in or around Fenton, MO (or somewhere in the St. Louis area)? If so, do you know if the amount that was allegedly found was more or less than 35 grams? Do you know why that question is important? Are you trying to figure out what your rights and options might be? If you are thinking about pleading guilty, do you understand the long term consequences of that decision? Are you aware that if you hire an experienced lawyer, he or she can help you get the results you are looking for?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
It is an unfortunate fact that most people charged with marijuana possession in Fenton MO simply plead guilty. While this may be an easy way to resolve the citation with the courts, making such a decision can have long lasting implications for you.
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 TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
Then of course you would have all the collateral damage to forward to in the future (if you plead guilty). This can be seen most notably in the lack of job opportunities with such a conviction on your record; or a lesser chance of getting a student loan; or even being able to apply for certain rental property.
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
But at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we have a much better plan in mind. We want to try and make one of two things happen: 1) get the charges dropped (a lot of times the police officer performed an illegal search when he or she found the drugs); or 2) get the charges reduced to a minor infraction (like “littering”). Either of these is much better than jail time!!
