PASSIONATE DEFENSE REPRESENTATION

Let's Change The Outcome

A good defense may help you face drug charges

As many residents of South Carolina are aware, being investigated on suspicion of involvement in a drug crime can be a very serious matter. Even before the matter goes to trial, it can have a severe impact on your life. For example, you could be suspended from your job while you are under investigation. You may also find that friends and family are unsure how to react to the news that you have been accused of a drug-related offense.

If you are convicted, things can become even more difficult, as even a minor offense can come with serious penalties, such as fines and a permanent mark on your criminal record. However, the exact consequences of conviction vary from case to case and are dependent on a number of factors, including the type and quantity of drugs involved.

For example, Schedule I drugs often carry harsher penalties than drugs from lower schedules. However, if you are suspected of manufacturing or distributing drugs, you could face more severe sentencing than you would for a possession charge. Previous convictions can also count against you, potentially making you more likely to be implicated in a drug crime and also increasing your chance of facing jail time or hefty fines if found guilty.

If you are facing drug charges, you might find our page on criminal defense helpful. An attorney may also be able to provide invaluable assistance by advising you on your potential options and helping you to prepare for your trial. With this guidance, you can work toward ensuring that the court hears your version of events as you aim to protect your future and attempt to avoid conviction.
