Marijuana Possession Charges in Pagedale, MO - for as little as $450
Did a police officer recently cite you with possession of marijuana in or near Pagedale, MO (or somewhere in the St. Louis area)? If so, do you know if the amount found was more or less than 35 grams? Do you understand why that is significant? Do you know what causes a drug possession to jump from a misdemeanor to a felony? Are you aware of the consequences that will come if you decide to plead guilty to the charges?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
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
These are serious charges (and some of the strictest in all of the country). But if you hire an attorney to handle your case for you, there is a very good chance that you will get nothing near any of that.
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
Our goal at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, is to try and get the charges reduced to a lesser infraction (one that will not even show up on your record, like “littering”). In the alternative, we would seek to have the charges dropped altogether (this usually happens when the officer who found the drugs performed an illegal search of your person or possession). Either way, hiring an attorney is a far better choice than doing nothing more than pleading guilty to the original charge!!
In addition, you should know that if you do decide to plead guilty, there are a lot of long term issues that you will have to deal with as well. This would include a smaller chance of getting a decent job, being issued certain licenses, and remaining qualified for certain governmental benefits.
