Marijuana Possession Charges in Sycamore Hills, MO - for as little as $450
Have you been charged with possession of marijuana in or near Sycamore Hills, MO (or any other municipality in the St. Louis area)? Was the substance found on your person, in your car, your home, or some other place? Did the officer perform the search lawfully (or did he/she conduct a search that violated your constitutional rights)? Did you that in many cases, a good attorney can get the charges reduced to something minor? Did you know that pleading guilty can lead to terrible future consequences?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
It is an unfortunate fact that most people do nothing more than plead guilty to the charge of marijuana possession in Sycamore Hills MO. This decision is made because they do not believe that there is any other viable option available. But nothing could be further from the truth!!
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
A good attorney can do one of two things: 1) get the charges amended down to a lesser infraction (like “littering”); or 2) get the charge thrown out altogether (because sometimes police officers make illegal searches when they detain you). Either way, it is far better than the alternative.
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
So what is the alternative to hiring an attorney? You could of course plead guilty. But here is what you would be facing:
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
In addition to these immediate concerns, you would also have to deal with the long term effects of a drug conviction on your record. For instance, getting a decent job can prove to be very difficult (because most potential employers do criminal background checks), and getting any future governmental benefits will likely dry up completely.
