Steps at the beginning of a criminal matter

Being charged with a drug crime starts a process that you will have to work through as you try to find a resolution to your case. For some defendants, this will end with a plea deal and others will go through a trial. Knowing some of the basic information about each step can help you to determine what you are going at each one.

Drug cases can sometimes come with asset seizure

People who live in this country have specific rights that are guaranteed by the United States Constitution. One of these is the Fourth Amendment right to not have to endure unreasonable seizures and searches. Another is the Eighth Amendment right to not have to pay excessive fines, fees or forfeitures. These two fundamental rights intersect in the asset seizure and forfeiture process.

Drug cases aren't as minor as some might think

Drug charges of all types are serious matters that you must address quickly. The issue with some of these is that the defendants don't think of them as anything serious. They aren't thinking about how these charges can impact their career and life. This mistake can lead to them making poor decisions regarding their defense.

Laws take a harsh stance against deadly drugs used illegally

Fentanyl is the deadliest drug in the country, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently confirmed. Each year from 2013 through 2016, the number of overdoses involving fentanyl grew by around 113 percent. This massive jump is one of the reasons why lawmakers have taken such a harsh stance against the drug by instituting severe criminal penalties for users and dealers.

Drug addiction often requires help for the user

Some people don't see why police arrest people for drug usage. After all, if they are adults, they should be able to use drugs if they feel the need. While this is true, the law says that possession of illegal drugs is a punishable offense. If you are facing this type of criminal charge, you must take it seriously.

Plea deal terms vary from one case to another

Many people associate plea deals with specific sentences. While this is one of the most common forms of plea deal terms, there are others that are also considered in many criminal cases. Anyone who is considering trying to work out a deal with the prosecution should know what might be possible. Here are a few to think about:

Address drug charges head-on

We recently discussed some points that Oklahoma residents might find interesting about marijuana. This is far from the only drug that is illegal in this state. For anyone who is using illegal drugs or using prescriptions that weren't written to them, there is a risk of facing criminal charges.

Commit to your criminal defense for drug charges in Oklahoma

There is a serious drug addiction issue in this country. The men and women who are addicted will usually do whatever they have to do to get the drugs they need to survive. They aren't concerned with criminal charges or getting into trouble. The addiction has taken over. We know that this is a very difficult spot for these individuals.

Is it possible to have a drug charge conviction expunged?

The mistakes we make during our lives can come back to haunt us in so many ways. Criminal convictions in particular continue to affect a person's life even after he or she has paid the full price as set down by the law and gone on to become a well-functioning member of the community.
