Marijuana Possession Charges in Moline Acres, MO - for as little as $450
Have you recently been issued a citation for possession of marijuana in or near Moline Acres, MO (or somewhere in the general St. Louis area)? If so, do you know what your options are? Do you understand the difference between being charged with more than 35 grams or less than 35 grams of marijuana? Are you aware of the potential consequences of pleading guilty to the charge? Do you have a good idea of what the benefits are of hiring a good attorney to help you?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
If these seem like good questions to you, then it is probably time you speak with an attorney. Why? Because understanding your legal rights and options is the cornerstone to getting the best possible outcome. And when you have the knowledge you need, then you have the ability to make smart, reasoned decisions. But what do most people in Moline Acres MO do when they get charged with possession of marijuana? They simply plead guilty. They figure that they have no other viable options to choose from.
PLEADING GUILTY CAN HAVE A DAMAGING EFFECT ON YOUR LONG TERM JOB PROSPECTS!!
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 then of course you are still looking at all the collateral damage that comes down the road. For example, getting a decent job with a drug conviction on your permanent record is almost impossible.
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
Instead of taking this road, our firm would seek to do one of two things: 1) get the charge reduced to something minor (like “littering,” which is a smaller infraction that does not appear on your record); or 2) get the charge knocked out altogether (an outcome that usually results when the police officer who found the drugs performed an illegal search).
