Possession of Marijuana

Mr. Shumate commonly represents clients charged with Possession of Marijuana.  Regardless of the current debate of regarding legalization of pot in the United States, the possession of marijuana in North Carolina is currently illegal.  It is a fact that this charge leads to, and is often associated with other charges that clients face.  Mr. Shumate routinely works with clients to address the specific legal issues in their cases to achieve the best possible result for each client.  

Many individuals facing simple possession charges simply do not take this charge seriously.  This is a class III misdemeanor charge.  While a lower level charge, a conviction can result in costs / fines, community service, and even active jail time depending upon your criminal history.  Furthermore, a conviction remains on your criminal record indefinitely.  

In many instances, a conviction can certainly be avoided through proper legal counsel.  We encourage you to take this charge seriously and obtain a free consultation regarding your case.
