Drug Charges, Sale & Possession
Drug possession charges can be very serious and can have a major impact on your life, even long after your sentence has been served. Depending on the circumstances, you could face thousands of dollars in fines, serious jail time, forfeiture of personal property and loss of your driving privileges—making transportation to and from school, work, the grocery, etc. a real hassle. Plainly stated, a conviction for a drug-related offense can haunt you for the rest of your life.
It has been said that “a man that represents himself has a fool for a client”. No statement is more true than for a person trying to represent themselves on a drug charge. Relying upon the police and the prosecutor to “work with you” and “help you out” is foolish. They have no agenda other than to see that you are successfully prosecuted.
