Tenacious, Thoughtful Defense Against Drug Charges
Now more than ever, drug laws are complicated. With new regulations and changing policies, it can be particularly confusing in Illinois. Unfortunately, you can still face serious consequences for even small amounts of possession.
From fines to jail time, a drug charge can alter your life in a major way. But it doesn’t have to come to this.
What Am I Up Against?
There are a few different drug charges you can be arrested for in the state of Illinois. The two most common are:
- Sale, manufacture, possession with intent to distribute
Both of these charges have varying consequences depending on the amount possessed, and the type of drug. But both can lead to jail time, fines and even prison sentences. The stigma of a drug charge can also follow you around for the rest of your life. It can limit future opportunities, especially for students, who may lose access to student aid, loans and grants.
Avoiding these charges requires the right legal help. A criminal defense lawyer is essential in going up against a drug charge.
