Lifelong penalties are possible in drug cases

by | Aug 26, 2016 | Drug Charges

Facing drug charges is a challenging situation for anyone. When your job depends on your ability to remain without a criminal record, drug charges can be especially troubling. Just last week, we discussed the case of the police officer who has been charged with drug crimes after a sting operation. That is one example of a person who is facing not only criminal charges, but is also facing the end of a career because of them.

If you are facing criminal charges for illegal drugs, your entire life could be impacted. We understand the severity of some of those impacts. You face losing your job. You could also face losing some of your rights. All of that can be especially difficult to think about.

Your defense against the drug charges is your best option for minimizing the effects of the charges. We are here to help you learn about the defense options that apply in your case. We aren’t able to promise you that your case will be thrown out, but we can work on your behalf to keep the penalties to a minimum.

As you are working on your defense, you have to consider several different things. There is a chance that you might be offered a plea deal. You will have to carefully consider that plea deal so that you can decide if it is a good option for you. That is a decision that only you can make.

If your case moves to trial, you will have to make a defense plan that is based on the prosecution’s case against you. We can help you to evaluate that case and determine where we can call points into question.
