What are the Penalties for Drug Crimes?
A potential drug charge can greatly affect your future. Punishment can include incarceration and fines, which means a criminal record, lost family time and income, probation, perhaps the loss of a driver’s license, and more. Repeat offenses are penalized even more strictly. Therefore, it is important to seek a lawyer who will fight to keep your record clean.
Drug charges allow officer discretion in determining intent and intoxication, which is subject to a challenge in the court of law. Many charges escalate from possession to the more serious intent to distribute regardless your personal usage.
