Marijuana Possession Charges in Hillsdale, MO - for as little as $450
Have you recently been charged with possession of marijuana in Hillsdale, MO (or within the St. Louis area)? Was the amount of the drug found more or less than 35 grams? When the marijuana was found, did the police officer perform a legal search (or was it done illegally)? Do you know what the major differences between the two are? Are you curious about your legal rights? Are you thinking about pleading guilty? Do you understand the potential consequences of pleading guilty to the crime?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we want to accomplish one of two things: 1) get the charges dropped (perhaps because of an improper search conducted by the police); or 2) get the charges reduced to something minor (like the simple infraction of “littering,” which does not even show up on your permanent record).Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
But unfortunately, most individuals in Hillsdale MO, who are charged with marijuana possession plead guilty (without first looking into any other option). Because options other than jail do exist. And jail is a strong possibility if you do not have the aid of an attorney.
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.
In addition to this, you can also expect a barrage of negative consequences as you move forward with life. If you have a drug conviction on your record, then finding a decent job can be difficult. Even getting into a decent apartment can be hard. So if you wish to avoid these negative effects, then hiring an experienced attorney is a good idea.
