ONLY $375 ATTORNEY FEES FOR A ST LOUIS MISDEMEANOR CHARGE

Getting a St Louis criminal charge reduced depends on two main factors: 1) the municipality in which the charge has been made (there is a huge difference between how things are handled in St Louis County versus St Louis City; 2) the type of charge it is (because there is also a really big difference between a common trespassing charge versus a heroin possession charge). But regardless, the main goal is to see if in fact a reduction / amendment of the charges can be had. A further explanation is provided below:

The state of Missouri considers marijuana to be an illegal controlled substance. As a result, if you are caught with less than 35 grams, it is a Class A Misdemeanor (which can come with up to one (1) year of jail time and a $1,000 fine); if it is more than 35 grams, then it is a Class C Felony (in which case the maximum jail sentence is up to seven (7) years and a $5,000 fine).
