Defending The Rights Of Those Facing Drug Possession Charges

For many years, the state of Missouri has been known to treat those who have been accused of drug-related crimes extremely harshly. Even though there has been a gradual push to view drug offenses less strictly throughout the United States, and Missouri is slowly becoming more open to reform toward marijuana laws, many of those within the state courts, from judges to juries, still have stringent attitudes towards people who have been charged with possessing, distributing, or using controlled substances.

Steve Schanker, Attorney at Law, is determined to fight for your cause so that you get the fair representation you deserve in court.

Drug Possession Cases We Handle

One of the most common kinds of drug-related charges in Missouri is that of possession, but there are actually many other types of charges as well, each with their own specific range of consequences and penalties.

Fortunately, Steve Schanker is extremely skilled at defending against the complexities of these kinds of offenses.

  • Cocaine
  • Vicodin

  • Methamphetamines

  • Drugs obtained without a prescription

What are the Penalties for Drug Possession in Missouri?

It is crucial to know the penalties inflicted for drug charges in Missouri, so you will more clearly recognize the seriousness of your situation. Almost all cases related to drug possession result in a class D felony, at the very least. This means that those who are convicted will often face several years in either a county jail or a state prison, paying exorbitant fees of up to $10,000.

However, as the levels of felonies rise, so do the penalties. Class B felonies can include up to 15 years of prison, and Class A felonies can result in up to 30 years in prison.

Even once you are eventually freed from incarceration, the results of this conviction are harsh and long-lasting. Everywhere that you seek to apply for a job, a loan, or even try to mortgage or rent a house, you will be required to show your criminal record, which will often bar you from these critical opportunities. In certain cases, those with these kinds of records may be denied the privileges of caring for or visiting their children.
