Are you aware of the benefits that you receive by hiring an experienced attorney?We Want to Get the Marijuana Charge Reduced So That It Does Not Show Up on Your Record
If you are unsure about any of the above questions, then it is probably time you speak with an attorney who is knowledgeable in marijuana drug charges in Norwood Court MO. Why? There are many reasons to take into consideration:
- An experienced attorney can often get the charge reduced to a lesser offense (like “littering,” especially if this is a first offense)
- An experienced attorney can fight to make sure you do not do any jail time
- An experienced attorney can help to ensure that nothing negative goes on your permanent record
But if you do decide to plead guilty, then you should know about the implications of that decision (some immediate, and some long term).
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 there are the long term consequences, like lowering your job prospects (because most potential employers run criminal background checks for all applicants); or lowering your chances at a decent apartment (because most landlords also run a background check, and use it as a way to screen people out); or lowering your options when it comes to governmental benefits (because as it stands now, certain welfare programs are restricted by law from paying out to someone with a drug conviction on their record). So in the end, it is clear that hiring a lawyer to help you through the process is far better!!$450 To Take Care of Most Misdemeanor Marijuana Charges
