Drug charges present a few unique problems for the defendants. One of the most common things that these defendants have to deal with is the fact that they have to try to detox from the drugs they were on while they are incarcerated.
Another problem is that their family members might have written them off - or may even feel glad that their loved one is safely tucked away in jail. However, we understand that these situations can actually be devastating for the person facing charges. We are here to help defendants learn about their options for defense and how they might obtain a positive outcome from their situation.
When you are trying to determine what to do when you are facing drug charges, you need to look at all the possibilities. For some, going through a trial is the chosen course of action. This might be your first choice if you feel the need to prove that you aren't guilty of the charges -- but it is also one that you must think about carefully. If it is right for you, move forward with that option and work hard on shoring up your defense.
You may also want to explore other options. For example, you can find out if you qualify for a plea deal or a special program that can address your addiction and your criminal charges at the same time. We can work with you to find out what is possible in your case. From there, you can determine how you want to handle your case. Overall, you might need to come to terms with breaking your addiction so that you can move forward with creating the life that you deserve.
