Is Possession of Marijuana a Serious Charge?

In Kentucky possession of marijuana is classified as an A Misdemeanor.  An A misdemeanor is punishible by up to 12 months in jail and/or a $500 fine.  Most criminal defendants charged with marijuana possession make the mistake of believing that the charge is not serious because of the relatively low punishments typically handed out.  Many also overlook the more potentially damaging charge of possession of drug paraphernelia; which is an enhanceable offense.*** In Kenton, Campbell or Boone County, a person appearing for a first offense may be diverted or is likely to receive a fine and court costs.  Many criminal defendants simply pay the fine and go about their business only to see it come back at some point in the future.  If you are visiting or traveling through Northern Kentucky, personal appearance for court may be a significant burden. There are many reasons to hire an attorney to represent you in a marijuana possession case.  First, an attorney will ascertain whether you have a valid defense.  An attorney will also explore the various plea arrangements that best suits the defendant.  Some may prefer to pay a fine while others would rather do community service.  Additionally, an experienced attorney will guide you through the process which gives you the opportunity to have the charges removed, dismissed or expunged from your criminal record. If you have been charged with marijuana possession, drug paraphernelia or any other crime in Northern Kentucky, check out my website at or contact Michael Bouldin at [email protected] or 859-581-6453. ***Note: this post was made 4/19/2010.
