Drug Crime Defense
Las Vegas sees quite a few arrests, trials, and convictions for drug crimes each year. Unfortunately, many of those are the results of misconstrued evidence, secondhand testimony, and simple misunderstandings that don’t get straightened out in court. There are plenty of people serving sentences in prison that shouldn’t be there, and if you have been charged with a drug crime you could be next in line. With an experienced law firm at your side, though, you can count on an expert defense and fair treatment by the law.
Drug Crime Penalties
You would probably be shocked to find out just what the state can do to you if it finds you guilty of even minor drug crimes. The United States’ “war on drugs” frequently leads to casualties by sending people to treatment or prison just because they were caught in a situation that looked bad enough to convince a judge they were guilty. It doesn’t help that police and prosecutors use any evidence or testimony they can get, however shaky, to help put accused people behind bars. Even after you have served your official penalty, though, your troubles aren’t behind you. Background checks for years to come will make it nearly impossible for you to get a job or a loan and move forward with your life.
