Why You Need To Take Your Drug Charges Seriously — Even Minor Offenses
In Oklahoma, a drug charge that might be considered minor or even legal in another state, such as marijuana possession, can result in severe penalties. In fact, a marijuana possession conviction can result in up to a year in jail.
Regardless of the drug charge, it is important that you take the matter seriously and retain a skilled criminal defense lawyer to defend you.
Do Not Lose Hope
It is also important that you do not lose hope. Perhaps you feel like the evidence against you is too strong to fight. That is certainly what police and prosecutors want you to think.
At the Swain Law Group, based in Norman, Oklahoma, we have defended against many drugs charges and, time-after-time, have witnessed evidence being thrown out and cases dismissed because of illegal police procedures or weak evidence.
Our Drug Cases
From controlled dangerous substances (CDS), including marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine, to illegal possession or distribution of prescription drugs, such as oxycodone and hydrocodone, we have handled charges involving:
- Drug possession
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Drug distribution
- Drug trafficking
- Aggravated drug trafficking
- Drug cultivation and manufacturing
In every drug crime case we take on, our criminal defense team first begins by reviewing how the evidence was obtained. There are specific rules that police need to follow regarding the search and seizure of drugs or paraphernalia. If we find that authorities failed to follow these rules and performed an illegal search, we will seek to have the evidence thrown out and potentially even have the case dismissed.
Even if the evidence was obtained correctly, there may be problems with it. Whatever the case may be, we know the law and defense strategies to help you.
Whether through negotiation or trial, we are prepared to stand up for you, keep you out of jail and help obtain the best possible outcome.
