Charged With Drug Trafficking? Don’t Delay In Hiring An Experienced Defense Attorney.
When an individual is found in possession of a controlled substance, the district attorney looks at a number of factors when deciding whether to charge the person with drug possession (possession of a controlled substance) or drug trafficking (trafficking a controlled substance). That decision is often made based on evidence indicating the accused person’s intentions. Supporting evidence for drug trafficking charges might involve large quantities of marijuana, cocaine or another drug, large amounts of cash, or paraphernalia like plastic baggies and a scale.
Drug trafficking is a very serious felony that carries mandatory minimum prison terms. Our attorney at Martens Law Office, P.C., aggressively defends the firm’s clients against drug trafficking, drug manufacturing and all related charges. This includes conspiracy to distribute, possession of marijuana, cocaine, crystal meth or other controlled substances with intent to distribute or intent to sell a controlled substance. Lawyer Jared B. Martens will utilize more than 20 years of legal experience and an in-depth knowledge of criminal law to protect your rights and minimize the consequences you are facing.
You May Have More Options Than You Realize
The best case scenario in nearly any drug case is to have the charges dropped or to be completely acquitted. When possible, Mr. Martens will pursue these options. Depending on the circumstances, he may move to suppress evidence obtained through illegal search and seizure, meaning it could not be used to convict you.
If acquittal doesn’t seem possible, he may recommend that you consider a plea bargain to a lesser charge such as simple possession of drugs for personal use. A charge of cooking meth that would carry a sentence of several years in prison might be reduced to possession with intent to deliver, a charge that involves a much smaller sentence, perhaps a RIDER (Retained Jurisdiction). A plea bargain might involve negotiations for a sentence of drug rehabilitation rather than prison or jail time.
Before you decide you are out of options, discuss your case with an experienced professional like attorney Martens.
