Drug crime charges require careful defense strategies

Drugs crimes are seen by some as victimless crimes since adults who use drugs willingly purchase them. This doesn't mean that the laws see the situation in the same way. For this reason, Oklahoma has very strict laws against making, selling and using drugs. People who are found to be breaking the law will face criminal charges.

If you are facing criminal charges for anything related to drugs, you have to ensure that you understand the defense options that you have. These can vary greatly depending on the circumstances. You have to think about what happened during the course of your arrest and what factors are present in the case. This gives you a starting point for the defense strategy.

You also need to look at the type of drug crime you're facing when you try to decide how you'll present your defense. You need to handle state charges differently than federal ones. Possession charges are much different than those for selling or trafficking.

Don't fall into the mode of thinking that less serious charges won't require as much of a defense effort as more serious ones. Any drug conviction can dramatically alter your life, especially if it is a felony that will label you as a felon for life.

When you start to think about defense options, consider the penalties that you're facing. More serious penalties, including incarceration, will likely mean that you need to look at every option possible. You don't need to wait until the last minute to figure out your strategy. Instead, start soon, so you can take your time.
