Marijuana Possession Charges in Northwoods, MO - for as little as $450
Have you recently been issued a citation for possession of marijuana in or near Northwoods, MO? If so, do you know if the amount found in your possession was more or less than 35 grams? If it was more than 35 grams, do you know what sort of sentence you would be looking at if you plead guilty? Are you aware of the benefits of hiring an experienced attorney to help you understand your rights and options?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
If these are questions for which you do not have a solid answer, then it is time you speak with a good lawyer!! Why? For one thing, an attorney can describe to you how the drug laws in Missouri work (which are some of the harshest in the entire country), and what exactly your best options may be. For example, did you know that if you are a first time offender, there is a good chance that your lawyer can get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (like “littering,” an infraction that will not even show up on your permanent record)?Pleading Guilty Can Have a Devastating Impact on Your Future!!
But the worst decision you could make would be to plead guilty to the charge as is. This would in turn allow the court to potentially assess a hefty jail term and fine against you.
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.
And then of course there is all the unexpected damage that come from pleading guilty. If you have a drug conviction on your record, then getting a good job will be very difficult. Or getting into a good apartment can prove to be impossible in some cases. And getting a commercial driver’s license (CDL) can be out of your reach.
