Prepared To Deal Effectively With Your Possession, Distribution Or Other Drug-Related Charges
Even first-time offenders charged with possession of small amounts of marijuana can receive significant penalties in Virginia — and marijuana possession is one of very few misdemeanor drug offenses on the books. If you are charged with the sale, cultivation or transport of more than a half ounce of pot, you may be facing a felony charge and potentially up to 30 years in prison. Marijuana convictions provide a six-month driver’s license suspension.
Experience With Cases Involving Marijuana, Cocaine, Prescription Drugs And Other Substances
Simple possession of a Schedule 1, 2 and 3 controlled substances — everything from cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine to Ecstasy and all types of prescription painkillers like OxyContin — is a felony offense. Sale, distribution, transport and prescription fraud are all offenses that could send you to prison and could irreparably damage your future.
A first drug offense is serious both as to possible punishment and the record of the defendant. Flexibility is reduced with subsequent charges and the costs can be substantial.
