The Aggressive Defense You Need Against Drug Charges
The Law Office of Kimberly Griffin Tucker, P.C., takes a detail-oriented approach to handle your drug charges case. Mrs. Tucker has frequently found that suppression of the evidence may secure a dismissal of charges if there was an improper search and seizure.
In fact, the search and seizure surrounding your arrest is key when it comes to challenging:
- Drug possession
- Intent to sell
- Prescription drug fraud
- Distribution case
Whether your case involves buying drugs, selling drugs or possession, Mrs. Tucker will fully discuss all of these issues with you in order to determine whether it is best to plead or try your case.
The Offense Level Of Drug Cases Are Extremely Varied
When it comes to drug charges and potential sentences, the details and context matter greatly. Possession of marijuana alone can range from a Class B misdemeanor that carries a range of punishment of up to 180 days in the county jail and/or a fine of up to $2,000, and up to a first-degree felony that carries the possibility of time in the penitentiary. Possession of a controlled substance can also widely vary. This is why it is so important to have a knowledgeable lawyer on your side to help you.
The Key To A Good Defense
You should also prepare a detailed written statement of what happened (detail all events leading up to your arrest) as soon as possible. Determine whether you have any witnesses who could help you should you decide to go to trial. Get their contact information and have them draft a brief statement. They may prove invaluable if you decide to go to trial, whether it involves meth or any other type of illegal drug.
Drug charges cases can have many suppression-of-evidence issues, as well as trial issues. When you hire her, Mrs. Tucker takes the time to discuss all these factors in detail with you in order to determine whether it is best to plead or try your case.
If your plea offer involves a “straight probation offer,” that means an automatic conviction and can mean a suspension of your driver’s license as well. If this is your situation, you may have nothing to lose by trying your case.
