The recent arrest of Green Bay Packer nose tackle Letroy Guion for felony possession of marijuana and a gun illustrates the seriousness of criminal charges for possessing, sale or delivery of marijuana. In Wisconsin simple possession for small amounts on a first offense is a misdemeanor with a penalty of up to 6 months incarceration and a $1,000 fine. But do not take first offense charges lightly – even a misdemeanor marijuana conviction can have life changing consequences. You may find yourself unemployed and with a drug conviction on your record making it even more difficult to find a new job. That is why it is important to seek legal counsel from an experienced criminal defense attorney that focuses his or her law practice on defending drug charges to protect your constitutional rights and to minimize the impact of a misdemeanor conviction on your future. By working with an experienced drug charges defense attorney, who has worked with the courts, the judges, and, most importantly, the prosecutor’s office, you may be able to remove the conviction from your permanent record and avoid going to trial.
