Drug charges require a defense because convictions have penalties

No matter what kind of drug charge you are facing, there is a chance that you will have to deal with penalties if you are convicted. While you might be worried about incarceration, probation and fines, those aren't the only penalties that you might face. You might face collateral consequences of the conviction.

The collateral consequences that you face can be just as serious as the court-imposed penalties. These collateral consequences can include losing your job, certain rights and housing. In some cases, a drug conviction can limit the assistance that you can get for other aspects of your life. Your ability to get a student loan, for example, might be affected by a drug-related conviction.

If you think about our blog post from last week, you probably remember that the penalties for marijuana charges are serious for selling or trafficking the drug. The penalties that you face for other drug charges, such as heroin, cocaine or methamphetamines can be just as serious or even more serious.

In all cases that involve drugs, we have to look at where we can introduce doubt about what the prosecution is saying. This might mean calling the legality of the search that produced the drugs into question. It might mean trying to find a way to call the actual composition of the substance taken into question.

We explore various defenses when we take on your case. We want to work with you to determine how to present your defense in a way that helps to show your side of the story while making sure that your rights aren't violated.
