If there was a way to get your marijuana possession charges in Maplewood, MO reduced, would you take it?

WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are actually one of the few. Why? Because most people in Maplewood MO who are charged with marijuana possession simply plead guilty to it. They do this because they honestly believe that they have no other options available to them. They think that it is just easier to stand in front of the judge and claim their guilt in open court.
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
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
And beyond these potential sentences, there is the long term collateral damage that you would have to endure. This would include lower job prospects, a smaller chance of getting into a decent apartment, and even an uphill battle to try and get a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or student loan.
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
Our philosophy is simple: instead of dealing with all of that, we would rather try and get the charge reduced to some lesser offense (like “littering”). This possibility is especially available to someone who is a first time offender. Either way, hiring a good attorney to take care of your case is far better than simply pleading guilty.
