Fort Collins Marijuana Possession Attorney
Many people are under the impression that Colorado takes marijuana-related criminal charges lightly. That is simply not the case. There are serious consequences for marijuana possession and distribution charges, and they can go beyond the courtroom as well. If you want to protect your future, you want an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side.
I am Greeley marijuana defense attorney Stephanie Stout. For over a decade, I have been protecting the rights of the accused in the courts of northern Colorado. Over that time, I have handled hundreds of marijuana drug charges. I know when to take the first offer or plea bargain and when you should take your case to trial.
Strong Advocacy for the Accused
If you face any type of criminal charge, you want to know what the potential consequences are and how much it is going to cost you to fight them. Most people do not realize how much is at stake for the following marijuana-related crimes:
- Marijuana possession
- Marijuana distribution
- Marijuana cultivation
These are not minor charges. The state of Colorado takes them very seriously, and a conviction can carry huge consequences. In addition to the criminal consequences, which can include fines and jail time, a conviction can negatively impact your job, licensing and student loans. You could be thrown out of assisted housing if you are found guilty of a marijuana charge.
Colorado provides a number of alternative sentencing options for people convicted of marijuana crimes. While my first priority is to clear the charges against you, I will help you make the tough decisions and explore your sentencing options, as probation and treatment programs are often available as alternatives to jail time.
If you have been charged with marijuana distribution or possession, do not wait to learn more about your rights and options. With offices in Greeley and Fort Collins, I am ready to answer your questions. Contact me today to schedule a free initial consultation.
