Chesterfield Marijuana Possession Reduced and Avoided Jail Time
Samantha Upton represented a client charged with Possession of Marijuana in Chesterfield County. The client had to drive for his job, and feared having his license suspended, as well as the possibility for jail time. If convicted of Possession of Marijuana, the person’s driver’s license is automatically suspended for 6 months.
Ms. Upton was able to have the Possession of Marijuana charge reduced to a Possession of Paraphernalia charge. This allowed the client to avoid jail time, and a 6-month suspension of their license. The client needed to complete community service, and pay a small fine and court costs.
