You Are Presumed Innocent Until Proven Guilty
Remember that though you might be facing serious charges, just being arrested does not mean that you will face legal consequences. If you hire the best criminal defense attorney to defend you, we might be able to get the charges dropped. Even if there is a mountain of evidence, we might be able to negotiate with the prosecution to significantly reduce the penalties you face.
What to Expect if You Are Charged with Drug Dealing
One of the most serious drug charges a person can face is drug sales or transportation charges. The punishment for a guilty verdict can vary widely, which is another reason you need an attorney to fight for a lenient sentence. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) takes these charges seriously, and those convicted could end up spending decades in prison and being charged fines in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
What to Expect if You Are Charged with Drug Trafficking
When a person is charged with selling drugs, the prosecution will often add on charges of drug distribution and trafficking. Trafficking is a much more serious crime than simple possession and is charged as a felony. A conviction for drug trafficking can result in at least three years in prison but up to life in prison.
