Alabama Drug Crime Defense Attorneys
Have you been arrested of, or are you under investigation for, federal or state drug charges? If so, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First of all, federal and state drug laws allow aggressive prosecution for drug possession, drug trafficking, and various related drug crimes. The criminal penalties that you might face as a result have become more and more severe as time passes, including the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act (2000), which allows for your assets to be forfeited or seized for drug crimes. Finally, the Patriot Act has served to only further impact the court’s tolerance for certain arrest procedures that has not been previously permitted.

First offense? You still need a lawyer.
You might be tempted to rely on the mercy of the court system if you are facing your first offense. After all, how bad could the worst-case scenario possibly be? Well, depending upon the specific circumstances of your case, the answer is “pretty bad”. For something as simple as a misdemeanor possession charge for marijuana, for example, you could face a year in jail, a year of probation, and/or a fine of $6,000. If the possession is for a substance other than marijuana – something like heroin or cocaine – then the charge could increase to five years in state prison, a fine of $15,000, and five years’ worth of probation.
