Have You Been Accused of Possessing Marijuana?
The severity of marijuana possession charges can vary dramatically, depending on a variety of factors. The jurisdiction you were arrested in plays a role. In Milwaukee County, the offense may be treated only as an ordinance violation, which is relatively minor compared to other Wisconsin counties, where it may be charged as a misdemeanor. Of course, whether or not this is your first offense or not also makes a difference. A second offense may be charged as a felony, making matters much more serious.
All marijuana possession charges are serious. People often make the mistake of thinking that they are facing only minor charges. When they realize just how life-changing the repercussions can be, it is too late. By choosing an experienced lawyer to represent you, you can find out exactly what the repercussions will be. You can take steps to avoid them, protecting your rights and your future against the drug charges.
