Drug charges are often the result of other issues that are going on in a person’s life. For the men and women who find themselves in the criminal justice system, the fear of penalties of the system might seem overwhelming. This comes at a time when they might need help instead of being looked down upon.
We understand that things happen in life that can make it difficult for you to do what you know is the right thing to do. When the need for money or an addiction pull you toward drugs, you are running the risk of getting caught and facing criminal charges. In these cases, we might be able to help you determine if there are ways that the court can help you address the issues while still handing down a punishment for the crimes.
Drug charges of all types should be considered serious. Some people think that possession charges shouldn’t be thought of with the same severity as trafficking charges. While it is true that the penalties are greater with trafficking charges, the other impacts are likely the same between the charges. These include having a criminal record, which can impact your ability to find a job or a place to live.
The best way to stop the chance of having to deal with the penalties and consequences of criminal charges is to just stay away from illegal activities. But, life happens and this isn’t always possible. Even if you acknowledge to us that you are guilty, you should still work with us to find out what options you have for your defense.
