Drug charge defenses require proper planning

Facing drug charges can be a challenging situation for anyone. We recently discussed the penalties that you can face in this state for cocaine charges. This isn't the only type of drug that you will face legal troubles over if you have them in your possession or sell them. When you are a defendant in a drug case, you are going to have several decisions to make.

One of the first choices you must make is how you are going to plea to the charges you are facing. The most common is not guilty, which opens the door for you to fight the prosecution's case. The other two options are no contest and guilty. Neither of those give you the chance to try to dispute the claims, so be sure you acknowledge you did the crime if you are considering either one.

We realize that you need to think about what you want to do. You don't have too much time to do this because of the court schedule. We are here to help you to learn about what you might be able to do. From going through a trial to entering into drug court, you might have more than just one course of action possible.

When we work with you on your defense, we want to know what happened so that we can build a plan based on facts. Sometimes, the way that these are presented can make a difference in your case. We will work to determine how the jurors and other parties might perceive the statements we make on your behalf. This could help us to build up your defense.
