State and federal drug crimes charges

If you are facing state or federal drug charges in Ohio, you are most likely understandably worried. Defending yourself against drug charges can involve an intricate understanding of the law. Every drug case is different, and small details can mean the difference the types of charges you might face, possible sentences, and the ability to negotiate a favorable plea or win an acquittal.

Your drug charge may be anything from simple possession to a major drug trafficking and conspiracy allegation. In addition to your drug case, you may also be dealing with a related asset forfeiture action or additional charges of money laundering in relation to the alleged offense. It is important for you to begin defending against the allegations from the start.

If your case is being prosecuted in federal court, you may face larger sanctions. Sentencing in federal court is more severe, and the prosecutors are generally better at their jobs than are state prosecutors. Small details, such as the actual weight of any drugs that were seized, could have a huge affect in federal court on the charges, available pleas and whether you might be sentenced to prison. You may also need a clear understanding of your constitutional rights in order to move for appropriately grounded suppression motions concerning probable cause, your stop, any searches and any statements made.

Our firm might be able to approach your case with an eye for detail. We are often able to spot small issues that can lead to favorable pleas, alternative sentences, outright dismissals or jury trial wins. We understand the importance of the particular issues posed by drug charges.
