Are you aware of the benefits behind hiring an experienced attorney to help you through this process?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
It simply cannot be said enough: pleading guilty to the charge of marijuana possession in Kinloch MO is the worst thing you can do. Why? Because pleading guilty allows the state to place the charge on your permanent record. This will in turn have an incredibly destructive effect on your ability to gain decent employment (many potential employers will turn you away simply because of that blemish on your record). Your chances of getting a good apartment will diminish appreciably (what landlord is going to want a drug felon on his property?) And even your shot at getting a student loan will be hampered.Pleading Guilty Can Mean Significant Jail Time!!
On top of that, by pleading guilty you are allowing the state to assess a sentence upon you that can be harsh.
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.
A far better outcome can be had by simply contacting a good attorney about the charges. At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we would seek to have the charges reduced to something minor (like “littering”), or in the alternative, see about getting the charges dropped altogether (especially if the police conducted an illegal search when they found the drugs).
