Only $450 To Handle Most Breckenridge Hills, MO Misdemeanor Marijuana Possession Charge
Listed below are a few of the negative consequences you can expect if you plead guilty to a Breckenridge Hills MO marijuana charge:
- The guilty plea will turn into a drug conviction on your permanent record
- A simple background check will allow anyone to see it
- If you are planning on getting a job or an apartment in the future, this will make things more difficult for you
- And for anyone currently receiving governmental benefits, a criminal conviction such as this can end those benefits immediately
Instead of having to deal with the above consequences, here are a few things that a good Breckenridge Missouri marijuana attorney can do for you:
- The attorney can go over the details and facts of your case to determine if a dismissal of the charges is available (especially if the police officer conducted an illegal search)
- If that option is not available, your lawyer can work with the local prosecutor to possible secured a reduction of the charges to a lesser offense (like “littering”)
- Or if neither of above-mentioned options are available, then the attorney can see about getting an SIS (suspended imposition of sentence) on your case (which involves a period of probation, after which the charges drop off completely)
As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding marijuana possession went into effect:
- 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)
- If you are caught with between 10 – 35 grams, it is a Class A Misdemeanor
- If you are caught with between 35 grams – 30 kilograms, it is a Class C Felony
But what you want to avoid is pleading guilty!! Because if you make such a plea, there is nothing you can do about it later. It will become a permanent mark on you record, and will have damaging effects on your future.
