Aurora / Elgin – Marijuana Defense Attorney
If you were arrested for marijuana possession, you may face court supervision, up to a year in jail or probation. In cities like Aurora, marijuana is often charged as an ordinance violation — like a traffic ticket — which means you will not face jail time. However, it is always important to take marijuana possession charges seriously, as they can have a significant impact on your future.
Protect your future. A conviction for marijuana possession may make it very difficult for you to obtain financial aid for college — it could even disqualify you completely for federal grants. Moreover, a conviction could jeopardize your eligibility for military service. By pursuing a disposition to get the charges dismissed off of your record, our attorneys can take steps to ensure that this alleged crime does not adversely affect your future.
The penalties for possession of cannabis in quantities greater than 30 grams are more significant.
