Drug crimes, even a seemingly minor marijuana drug conviction, can lead to fines and probation, negatively impact your ability to get student loans or secure a promising job. A serious drug charge can lead to years in prison.
Some of these charges, including those involving methamphetamine, carry mandatory minimum sentences. If you have been charged with possessing five kilograms or more of methamphetamine with the intent to deliver, you face up to 25 years in prison and will not be eligible for parole until you have served at least one-third of your sentence.
Because of the severity of these consequences, the decision isn't about whether or not to fight the charges but rather with which lawyer you are going to partner.
