Marijuana Possession Charges in Manchester, MO - for as little as $450
What are your options if you are charged with possession of marijuana in Manchester, MO? Why does it matter if you are caught with more than 35 grams of the drug? What are the long term consequences of pleading guilty to the charge? What benefits can you realize if you were to hire an experienced attorney to help you through the process?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, then it is probably time to speak with a Manchester marijuana possession attorney. Why? Because facing the charge by your self is a recipe for disaster.
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.
This is to say nothing of the collateral damage that you would have to deal with if you plead guilty (which is exactly what most people in Manchester do). A drug charge on your permanent record can make it very difficult to get a decent job. It can severely hurt your chances of renting an apartment. And it can even have a damaging effect on your ability to get certain licenses (like a commercial driver’s license (CDL)).$450 To Take Care of Most Misdemeanor Marijuana Charges
So what is the alternative? Our firm would focus on one of two things: 1) getting the charges reduced to a lesser offense (like “littering,” which does not even appear on your record); or 2) getting the charges dropped altogether (usually by way of an illegal search performed by the police when they found the drugs in the first place). This is by far the better route to take. And we are only a phone call away!!
