What You Need To Know:
Most criminal drug charges stem from possession, manufacturing, distributing or trafficking drugs or narcotics (“controlled substances,” as the law refers to them). While the severity of penalties differ for each charge, it is important to understand that anydrug charge can carry life-altering consequences.
It is also important to know that the type of substance can greatly impact impending outcomes. Possession of marijuana, trafficking cocaine or prescription drugs, or manufacturing methamphetamine all require different defense strategies. Search and seizure issues, probable cause discrepancies and inaccurate warrants are just a few of the many methods used to defend a drug charge.
Obtaining legal representation as early as possible after you are charged with a drug crime is a vital step in achieving the best possible resolution for your case. There are a number of factors to consider when putting together a criminal defense for a drug charge, so an attorney with experience in drug defense will be able to help you understand any state and/or federal implications and analyze your situation to find weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.
