Only $450 To Handle Most Country Club Hills, MO Misdemeanor Marijuana Possession Charges
When you are dealing with a Country Club Hills MO marijuana charge, there are certain consequences that will happen if you plead guilty:
- The marijuana charge will become a drug conviction on your permanent record
- This will enable anyone wishing to do a criminal background check on you to see the conviction
- If you are wanting to rent an apartment, apply for a job, or get a student loan, then the drug conviction is going to make those goals very difficult to attain
- If you receive (or would want to apply for) governmental benefits (such as food stamps), the criminal conviction could result in a revocation of those benefits
Are you familiar with the kinds of services that a good Country Club Hills Missouri marijuana attorney can provide you with?
- Your attorney can take a close look at the facts and circumstances surrounding your case to see if it is possible to get the charges dropped
- Your St. Louis criminal defense lawyer can work hard to get the charge reduced to a lesser offense (like “littering,” which would not even show up on your record)
- Or if #1 or #2 is not available, then your lawyer could work out an SIS with the court (suspended imposition of sentence), which involves a period of probation (after which the charges drop off altogether)
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.
