A drug charge of any type can carry serious consequences. The severity of the penalties and long-term consequences will depend on many factors including the type of drug, the amount you are accused of possessing, whether you are charged with simple possession or possession with intent to distribute, if distribution was involved the age of the person to whom you are accused of distributing, and of course your prior record.
However, even for minor drug offense, the penalties can be much harsher than anyone may anticipate. Most possession charges, even for very small amounts, will result in suspension of your driver’s license and all go on your permanent criminal record, making you ineligible for many jobs. Depending on the factors mentioned above, you may be facing a lengthy mandatory minimum jail or prison term and hefty fines.

If You Are Facing Drug Charges
First and foremost, do not talk to the police or the prosecutor without an attorney present. This applies in all criminal matters, and drug charges are no exception. Police officers may mislead you, lie to you and make false promises. No matter what you are told, anything you say will be used against you.
When you have an experienced criminal defense attorney present, you attorney has the ability to enforce the promises made to you by law enforcement and ensure that any cooperation on your part will be rewarded.
