A Drug Crime Arrest Does Not Need To Be The End Of Your Hope
It can certainly feel as if the world has come crashing down on you when you are arrested or named as a suspect in a felony or misdemeanor drug crime case. You are right if you are worried about the short-term consequences such as jail time, penalties and great damage to your reputation. You are also right if you are concerned about the long-term consequences such as a criminal record and severe limitations on your career options.
The good news, however, is that prompt, skillful legal counsel may offer a hopeful path forward after you have been accused of:
- Possession of controlled, banned substances such as marijuana, cocaine or heroin
- Cultivation of marijuana or manufacture of other illegal drugs such as meth
- Distribution of illegal drugs, including prescription drugs obtained without prescriptions and/or distributed outside of licensed pharmacies
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Trafficking of large quantities of any banned substance
- Offenses associated with drug crimes, such as conspiracy and money laundering
