DUI & Drug Charges

HOW TO HANDLE A DRUNK DRIVING CHARGE

Nobody should get in a car after having too many drinks, but, unfortunately, it is a common occurrence. Anyone can think they are fine, only to get pulled over and discover they are over the legal limit. Once you face charges, you’ll want to reach out to an experienced attorney.

When you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney he will analyze the police report and videos that were taken during the traffic stop. Defending drunk driving charges can include analyzing the stop itself to make sure all the procedures were followed correctly. There are also ways to lower your penalty through a plea agreement. If it is your first offense, a lawyer may be able to help you lessen the penalties you face.

Penalties often increase for multiple offenders. It is important to consult with an experienced attorney who can help you understand the charges you are facing.

Common Drug Charges

Drug charges can range in severity. On the lower end there are situations involving drug paraphernalia and simple possession. There are also more severe cases involving the sale and trafficking of drugs. Common charges include:

  • Possession
  • Manufacturing
  • Trafficking
  • Distribution

There are a range of penalties for these offenses. In any case, you will want an experienced defense attorney on your side. Every drug case can be serious, and can have either state or federal implications. No matter the situation, you do not want to try and fight charges or make a plea agreement without consulting with an attorney.
