What are some viable defenses for drug possession charges?

As all criminal defense attorneys say, anyone arrested on drug charges in Oklahoma should take the matter seriously. Never assume that the charges, warranted or not, will disappear without taking direct action. Oklahoma law enforcement is notoriously strict on drug charges and the state's penalties are stiff.

What types of paraphernalia can lead to drug charges in Oklahoma?

While authorities across the nation are gradually changing their view of natural substances like marijuana, Oklahoma persists in charging residents who possess or sell such substances. What many people fail to realize is that possessing items the authorities connect with drug use or distribution can also lead to drug charges in the state.

Is blaming a doctor for my addiction a defense for drug charges?

Like other states, Oklahoma has a huge drug addiction problem. When addicts can no longer acquire drugs through a doctor, they often turn to illegal substances like heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine. Sometimes, addicts can also find a source from which to purchase prescription drugs meant for other people. Both of these "solutions" are illegal in the eyes of the law no matter how desperate you feel.

A cocaine trafficking conviction will definitely change your life

Of all the drug charges an Oklahoma citizen could face, trafficking is one of the most serious. From police officers to prosecutors to politicians, everyone views drug trafficking in an extremely harsh light. When trafficking charges involve serious drugs like heroin or cocaine, the stakes rise even higher for the defendant.

How can a criminal defense attorney help me?

Being charged with a crime can be the end of the line for many. It doesn't have to be that way in your situation. Criminal charges are often dropped, reduced or thrown out for various reasons. The difference between being convicted and having the charges dropped is usually due to the work of an experienced criminal defense attorney in Norman.
