Police pulled over a car with 4 individuals inside just after 11:32 pm because a light was out over the rear license plate. The officer states he smelled a strong odor of marijuana. Cigarettes found in the car allegedly field tested positive for marijuana. All for people in the car were arrested, issued summons and released.
Three of the men arrested during the traffic stop were basketball players for The University of Missouri. Allegations like these could lead to charges and sentences that could not only affect the immediate eligibility of these student athletes, but could also affect their future academic and career plans.
Charges such as Possession of Marijuana are serious charges that can have serious ramifications for college students and athletes. If you or someone you love has been caught with weed, you need an experienced defense lawyer to represent you. A St. Louis Drug defense lawyer like John Schleiffarth of JCS Law may be able to help you get charges reduced or even dropped. These cases can involve illegal search, unlawful stops, drug dogs and overly aggressive cops. JCS Law can boldly and aggressively defend you and attack the State’s case against you.
