Marijuana Possession Charges in Maryland Heights, MO - for as little as $450
When a marijuana possession charge is handed out in Maryland Heights, MO (or anywhere in the surrounding St. Louis area), do you know how the criminal process plays out thereafter? Do you have a good understanding of how certain sentences can be assessed? Do you know if you were caught with more or less than 35 grams of the drug? Do you know if the police officer who found the marijuana performed a legal or illegal search? Do you know how valuable it is to have an experienced attorney help you through the process (from start to finish)?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
If you are uncertain about the exact answers to these questions, then it is high time you talk to an attorney. Why? For one thing, an experienced attorney can describe what sort of sentence you would be facing.
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
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
And keep in mind that there are a ton of other unforeseen consequences that you would not be able to see right away (if you were to plead guilty to the Maryland Heights, MO marijuana possession charge). For example, the chances of getting a good job are substantially hurt as a result (because most potential employers run background checks, and use that information to weed people out).
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
But we have a much different alternative in mind. We would rather try and get the charges reduced to some lesser offense (like “littering,” a charge that does not even show up on your permanent record). Or there are even situations in which we can get the charges dropped altogether (this type of thing can happen when the police violate your Constitutional rights when they perform an illegal search).
