In March of 2013, our client was arrested by the Bristol Police Department and charged with possession of marijuana.
Pursuant to Rhode Island General Laws 21-28-4.01(a), except as authorized by this chapter, it shall be unlawful for any person to manufacture, deliver, or possess with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance. Specifically, possession of a controlled substance classified in schedule I as marijuana is guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction may be imprisoned for not more than one year or fined not less than two hundred dollars ($200) nor more than five hundred dollars ($500), or both.
Due to Attorney Humphrey's skill and experience with marijuana offenses, the charge was dismissed and our client is immediately eligible to have the charge expunged from his record.
Although possession of marijuana has since been decriminalized, the new law only applies to possession of one (1) ounce or less of marijuana. Possession of larger quantities of marijuana is still a crime as is possession of marijuana with intent to manufacture or deliver.
If you or a family member has been charged with possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine or other drug charges, please allow Attorney Robert H. Humphrey's reputation, experience and skill to successfully guide you through the legal process. Please contact Attorney Robert H.
