Drug crime accusations needn't turn into drug crime convictions

Prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications are readily available and prescribed. Meanwhile, several substances are considered controlled substances and the use or possession of such could lead to criminal charges. If you are accused of a drug crime, there are ways to examine the situation to attempt to create the most favorable outcome possible.

This comes down to building a criminal defense strategy that works to portray the side of the story of the accused. It can also point out any holes in the prosecution or police accusations. Whether a person is facing drug possession, intent to sell or other related drug charges, a drug conviction can change a person's life forever. Drug crimes can be prosecuted as a felony or a misdemeanor.

If you or a loved one is facing a drug crime accusation, it's important to understand the specifics of the charge. Misdemeanors have potential penalties of up to a year in jail if a person is convicted, and felony can lead to a year or longer. That's a huge potential sentencing differential, if convicted. Every person accused of a crime is entitled to build a criminal defense.

The criminal defense strategy that a person chooses could look very different from one that another person accused of the same crime might use. This could be due to previous convictions, specific facts surrounding the alleged incident, evidence the defense plans to present or many other factors. This shows just how many variable factors can impact a person's drug crime accusation.
