WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
Most of the people in Sunset Hills, MO, sadly, will do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge of marijuana possession. In their minds they figure, “I did have the drugs on me. The cop found the drugs. It wasn’t like the drugs were planted on me. I guess I have no choice but to admit guilty.” This is certainly a very honest and noble approach, but there are a great many consequences to come with such a decision.
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
But pleading guilty is not your only option!! An experienced attorney can usually get the Sunset Hills, MO possession charge reduced to a much lesser infraction (like “littering”) and keep the negative mark of marijuana off your permanent record. And in some cases, the attorney can get the whole case thrown out (this is especially true in cases where the police officer performed an illegal search when he or she found the drugs in the first place).
