Charged with simple possession of marijuana (less than 15 grams) for the first time? Call The Moore Law Firm today. Our seasoned criminal defense attorneys will provide you with a personalized defense strategy to give you the best possible outcome.
Whether you are charged with having marijuana in a dorm room, a vehicle, or on your person, we can help put this charge behind you for good. We routinely represent students and other individuals who have been charged with simple possession. In fact, possession is one of the most common criminal offenses that we defend, especially in Morgantown.
Here is a brief overview of the process. If you are issued a citation for simple possession, you will have a number of days (typically 10 days) to report to the Court and either enter a plea or request a hearing. We strongly recommend that you contact an attorney before taking any action with the Court. That way, we can look at your case and determine the best possible course of action to mitigate the charge.
If you are charged by an arrest warrant, you will be taken before a magistrate or municipal judge and arraigned. Likely, you will be given an opportunity to enter a plea at the arraignment. Again, we strongly recommend that you request an opportunity to speak with an attorney before entering any type of plea.
Once you contact our firm, we will perform an investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding the charge and determine the best course of action for you. Our goal is to have the possession charge dismissed and, ultimately, expunged from your record.
Over the years, our firm has represented countless individuals charged with possession. We provide exceptional services at reasonable costs. If you or someone you know is facing a simple possession charge, call one of our experienced criminal defense attorneys today, and let us help put the charge behind you.
