Des Peres Criminal Drug Defense Attorney
I am Douglas Richards, a City of Des Peres MO Criminal Drug Defense Attorney, who since graduating from Washington University Law School in 1986, have been helping and defending people who have been arrested and charged with all kinds of Criminal Drug Charges for over the past 34 years.
If you or a family member have been arrested or cited for a Criminal Drug Charge in the City of Des Peres, MO, call me to discuss your case. Whether the Criminal Drug Charge is for, but not limited to:
- Drug Possession and/or Possession of a Controlled Substance
- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
- Possession of Marijuana
- Minor in Possession
- Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
- Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and/or Drugs (DUI)
- Driving With Excessive Blood Content (BAC)
- Or Any Other Criminal Charges
Pleading guilty to a Criminal Drug Possession Charge; a Possession of Drug Paraphernalia Charge; a Possession of Marijuana Charge; a Minor in Possession of Alcohol Charge; a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) Charge; or a Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and/or Drugs (DUI) Charge, could not only mean a criminal conviction on your record, but also fines, completion of required programs, application of the Missouri Department of Revenue point system, and/or even jail time. These consequences could also lead to eventual suspension of your driver’s license and extremely high insurance rates for several years.
Before pleading guilty to any type of Criminal Drug Charge, a Criminal Drug Possession Charge, a Criminal Drug Paraphernalia Charge, a DUI Charge (Driving Under the Influence of Drugs, a DWI Charge (Driving While Intoxicated), or any other kind of Criminal Charge, it is often worthwhile to discuss the situation with an experienced Criminal Drug Attorney. You may permanently damage your case by talking with police and prosecutors before talking with a Criminal Drug Defense Attorney.
Call me, Douglas Richards, an experienced Des Peres Criminal Drug Defense Attorney, for a Free Consultation.
I have represented clients facing criminal drug charges for over 34 years. The Prosecuting Attorney must prove guilt in municipal court criminal drug cases, like all other criminal cases, beyond a reasonable doubt. By demonstrating even before trial that the Prosecuting Attorney has no case, or a very weak case, this can serve as the basis to arrange for a plea bargain to a reduced or lesser amended charge, or even for the complete dismissal of the original criminal drug charge itself.
I will make sure your rights and privileges are protected to the greatest extent possible. An arrest can be a devastating experience, and the consequences can follow you for the rest of your life. Because the criminal court system is complex, you benefit from the counsel of a skilled and knowledgeable Criminal Drug Defense Attorney in court. You need someone on your side who understands the law and how the municipal criminal courts work.
I never charge a fee for an initial consultation because I understand that finding the right Criminal Drug Attorney is an important step. Call me today so we can set up a time to meet face-to-face so I can answer all of your Criminal Drug Defense questions.
