Drug crimes can occur when people are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Unfortunately, drug crimes often have severe consequences. Drug charges can jeopardize employment, educational opportunities, parental rights, and can cause property to be seized by the government. The state does not presume one’s innocence. They charge suspects with the maximum possible crime according to the state’s perception of the facts, regardless of the truth. It is important at times like these to choose an attorney who will work tirelessly to bring the truth to light.
