Marijuana Possession Charges in North St. Louis County, MO - for as little as $450
Did you recently get caught with possession of marijuana in or around North St. Louis County, MO (or anywhere else in the St. Louis area)? Do you know if the amount found on you was more or less than 35 grams? Do you know if the police officer who performed the search to find the drugs did so in a lawful manner? Are you aware of the benefits that come with hiring a good attorney to take care of the charge for you?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
It is a sad fact that most people simply plead guilty to the charge of marijuana possession in North St. Louis County, MO. The reason for doing this is simple: they believe that there is no easier way of handling the situation, and pleading guilty is the quickest way to get rid of it. Well, if you plead guilty to the charge, then it will certainly take care of the situation quickly. But what most people do not realize is the long term and short term effects this will have on a person’s life.
PLEADING GUILTY CAN HAVE A VERY NEGATIVE IMPACT ON YOUR FUTURE!!
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 if you have a drug conviction on your permanent record, your chances of getting a decent job decrease tremendously (as does your chance of getting into a decent rental apartment).
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
But at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we have something else in mind. We want to accomplish one of two things: 1) get the charge reduced to a lesser offense (something like “littering”); or 2) get the charge dropped (maybe because the police conducted an illegal search to find the drugs in the first place). Either way, this is a far better option than pleading guilty!!
