If you are dealing with a charge for possession of marijuana in Hanley Hills, MO (or somewhere in the surrounding St. Louis area), do you know what your legal rights are?

Do you know if the police officer who found the drugs performed a lawful search that did not infringe upon your Constitutional rights? Are you thinking about simply pleading guilty to the charge? Do you have an idea of what the consequences might be if you make that decision? Did you know that an experienced attorney can help you through the entire process from start to finish?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
It is a sad fact indeed that most people in Hanley Hills MO, when charged with something like marijuana possession, will simply plead guilty. Very often, these individuals make this decision without fully understanding what sort of consequences might come of it. For example, having a drug conviction on your record can make it very difficult to get a good paying job. It can have a restraining effect on your ability to take out a student loan. And it can even put up a barrier in your quest to rent an apartment.Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
And then of course there is the potential sentence you could face right away. This is why the amount of marijuana found is so important.
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.
