Have you been charged with possession of marijuana in or around North Riverfront, MO (or somewhere in the general St. Louis area)? If so, are you now trying to figure out the best way to handle it? Do you have a good understanding of your rights and options? Do you understand why there is a difference in being caught with less than 35 grams of marijuana? Did you realize that hiring a competent attorney to help you through the process is far better than simply pleading guilty?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
For whatever reason, most people in North Riverfront, MO chose to plead guilty when charged with possession of marijuana. This is likely because they do not realize that hiring an attorney is a much better route to take. Why? Because if you simply plead guilty, then you are jeopardizing your future. Things like finding a job, or getting an apartment, or even securing a student loan (or other government services) can prove to be difficult when you have a drug conviction on your permanent record.Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
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.
So no matter how you look at it, getting an attorney to help guide you through the process is far better. Our goal is to try and get the charge reduced to a lesser infraction (like “littering”). This is usually available if it is your first offense. Or in the alternative, if the police officer conducted an illegal search when he or she found the drugs, then it is also possible to get the charges dropped altogether.
