Marijuana Possession Charges in Woodson Terrace, MO - for as little as $450
Are you currently facing charges of marijuana possession in or near Woodson Terrace, MO (or anywhere in the St. Louis area)? Do you know what you legal rights are? Do you know what your full range of options are? Do you know what can happen if you plead guilty to the charge? Do you have a good understanding of how an attorney can help you get through the process?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
An experienced attorney can usually accomplish one of two things when dealing with a marijuana charge in Woodson Terrace, MO: 1) get the charge reduced to some minor infraction (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your permanent record); 2) get the charge thrown out altogether (this can happen when the police officer violates your constitutional rights by performing an illegal search).
PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
But if you were to plead guilty to the charge, then you would be facing some fairly stiff penalties (indeed, the state of Missouri has some of the toughest drug laws in the entire nation).
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
$450 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
And then of course there are all the long term hassles you would have to deal with as well. This would include a hard time getting a decent job (because with a drug conviction on your record, you will miss out on a whole host of potential job opportunities), your chances of getting a student loan are all but removed, and any assistance that you might be receiving from the government (such as housing or welfare payments) will surely dry up. So as you can see, it is far better to at least speak with an attorney first before you make any decisions!!
