WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
If you are unsure about the answer to several of these questions, then it is time that you speak with an attorney!! Why? Because most people in Uplands Park, MO simply plead guilty when they are facing marijuana possession charges. They just want the whole thing to be over, and they believe that by pleading guilty, they can get the entire affair out their way. But this is terribly short term thinking!!
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
Pleading guilty to a drug crime will stay on your permanent record forever. As a result, it can haunt you in years to come. If for instance you want to apply for a job with such a conviction, you are going to have a very difficult time finding anything (because most potential employers run criminal background checks to screen out applicants); if you are wanting to maintain governmental benefits, you will see those funds dry up (because most state and federal rules disallow anyone from gaining benefits with a drug charge); and getting a student loan is much more difficult.
