Jacksonville Drug Crime Attorney
Drug Charges in NC
Very few things can be more damaging to your record and your reputation than a narcotics conviction. Whether we're dealing with misdemeanor charges, like possession of marijuana, up to major felony drug trafficking cases, there are many things we can do to help you overcome this difficult and potentially ruinous situation.
Whether you have a clean record or have been in trouble before, a drug case requires a skilled lawyer working for you.
Defense Options Against Drug Charges in NC
Although the prospects for the future may seem troubling if you have been charged with a drug crime, things may not be as grim as they seem. With these types of cases, we have several potential options.
In some cases, we may want to mount a thorough and aggressive defense and challenge the government’s accusations. In other situations, we may wish to negotiate with the prosecutors. It is often possible to arrange a significant reduction or even an outright dismissal of the charges.
We can help you poke holes in the prosecution’s argument. We may be able to help you prove that:
- The drugs were not in your possession
- The police had no lawful reason to stop or search you
- You had a legal reason for possessing the drugs in question
- The items seized are not illegal drugs to begin with, or were not illegal for you to possess
- The police influenced you to commit a crime, thereby committing entrapment
The police will often try to convince you to talk to them without first speaking to a lawyer, saying that they will help you. They may even offer to reduce or dismiss the charges in exchange for your cooperation, which is something they actually have no power to do.
The law guarantees you the right to consult with an attorney. Make the most of your rights and call one before you start making decisions without knowing the full consequences of your actions.
