Careers can be impacted by drug charges

On Behalf of | Feb 22, 2019 | Drug Crime Defense, Firm News

With the prevalence of drugs these days, some people think that criminal charges related to them are minor. This isn’t at all the case. You can’t fall into the habit of thinking that you are able to ignore these charges. Instead, it is time for you to get started on your defense right away so that you are able to take the time to think about the ways that each option is going to affect your future.

Your career might be in jeopardy when you are facing a drug charge. Many employers require that their employees remain drug-free throughout their employment. They might not let you go while the charges are pending, but you may be terminated if you are convicted. Sometimes, employers will be a bit more forgiving if the employee admits to a drug addiction and gets help for that.

We know that this is a troubling time for you, but we want you to know that you do have options. For some in New Hampshire, drug court is one of the options that is present. This gives the defendant a chance to address their addiction while under the court’s supervision. There are very strict requirements to complete the program, so participants should be sure they are able to comply.

Think about how each option you have will impact your life before you make decisions about the direction of your defense. Your plan must be based on the circumstances of your case and not influenced by what another defendant did for theirs. We are here to help you review the options and create your strategy.
