Keep Your Record Clean From Marijuana Charges
In recent years, the stigma against marijuana has relaxed and has even found several states legalizing the drug. South Dakota has joined the crowd to legalize marijuana in small amounts for personal and medical use. However, the state still takes the drug seriously, especially related to trafficking charges. What commonly happens is South Dakota police stopping out-of-state travelers as part of a routine traffic stop. When the officer finds the driver with a large amount of weed brought from another state, they charge the driver with possession of marijuana and intent to traffic drugs.
Because the drugs were from another state, what started with innocent intentions can quickly turn into a federal crime. When this happens, you need to have an experienced and aggressive attorney to defend you in federal court. At Kolbeck Law Office, I have been defending these drug charges for years and can do the same for you.
Fight To Minimize Or Suspend The Penalties As Much As Possible
Felony charges are extremely serious, and they can come with heavy fines and prison time. When I represent you, I’ll fight to get you the best possible outcome in your case. Our primary goal is to get your charges dismissed. If the court will not dismiss the case, I have a good track record of getting felony charges reduced to a misdemeanor.
If you have recently been cited for or convicted of marijuana-related charges, you may be able to seek a suspended imposition or concealment of your record. I have worked in South Dakota courts for more than 10 years and have a keen sense of how a judge may treat your charges. This experience allows me to strategically approach your case with the goal of getting the best outcome possible for your situation. Everyone is better than the worst thing they have done, and a recent change in the law could be your chance for a fresh start.
