Guilty pleas come with serious consequences. Never plead guilty without consulting an attorney. Even a plea to a simple marijuana charge (less than 1 oz.), can result in the loss of your license for an entire year which will cost you more than a simple fine and court costs. Take this charge seriously. A record can cost you job opportunities, driving privileges,fines and hefty court costs, and time performing community service. You may have to submit to random drug and alcohol screens, report monthly to probation and pay probation fees. To make matters worse, you will have a record for the rest of your life. The price you will pay is typically far greater than the cost of an attorney. Many marijuana and drug charges can be reduced or negotiated. Lisa Wells is an excellent criminal defense attorney.
