Drug charges usually facing our clients are ones involving illegal drugs and prescription drugs such as OxyContin and Vicodin. A person can be charged with selling drugs, simple drug possession, trafficking drugs, manufacturing a controlled substance, and growing drugs.
A person with a prior criminal record can determine the severity of the punishment. A person with no prior charges or a first-time offender will face less severe charges than a person with a prior criminal record for the same charges. Charges can range from misdemeanors to felonies.
The amount and types of illegal drugs involved can determine the seriousness of the charges. Were the drugs intended for personal use or to sell? These are all taken into consideration when charges are being filed against you. Being in possession of a drug is typically worse than just having the paraphernalia.
Penalties for drug crime convictions can be serious and include fines, jail or prison time, loss of driver’s license, seizure of all assets, and drug treatment. This is why it is so important to hire the right criminal defense attorney.
