Drug Paraphernalia Charges in St. Louis, MO - for as little as $375

MOST DRUG PARAPHERNALIA CHARGES CAN BE HANDLED FOR $375

When you are charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, it is usually accompanied with a concurrent charge of possession of drugs (like marijuana).  So if a police officer catches you with a bong or a pipe, rolling papers, or even a roach clip, then the officer will very likely cite you for paraphernalia possession.  In fact, it is pretty rare for the officer to only write a citation for paraphernalia (because the officer almost always finds some amount of illegal drugs as well).

WE WANT TO GET THE PARAPHERNALIA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD

The biggest mistake that people make in this kind of situation is to simply plead guilty to the charge of St. Louis drug paraphernalia.  Pleading guilty seems like the easiest route to take, so that you are done with the whole thing and can put it behind you.  But that is the LAST thing you want to do.  First of all, if you plead guilty to the charge, you cannot be expunged from your record later on.  With a guilty plea of drug paraphernalia on your record, the opportunity to get a student loan, or get into college, or even get a job is greatly hindered. 

PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!

As a result, it is far better to hire an experienced attorney to handle the matter for you.  In some situations, the paraphernalia was found by way of any illegal search and seizure.  If that is the case, then there is a chance to get the charge thrown out altogether.  Or in the alternative, it is also possible to get the paraphernalia charge reduced (amended) to a lesser charge (like “littering”).  In this kind of situation, the paraphernalia charge never ends up on your record (and therefore free of any misdemeanors).  This is a far better alternative to simply pleading guilty.

As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding drug paraphernalia possession went into effect: 

1.    If you are caught with paraphernalia, and it is your first offense, then it is a Class D Misdemeanor
2.    If you have plead guilty to any prior drug-related crimes, then it is a Class A Misdemeanor
