Overland Park Drug Crime Defense Attorney
Possession, Trafficking, Distribution, Cultivation
When someone is arrested for a drug crime, the balance of power is very uneven. The weight of the state or federal government applied full force against one individual can be overwhelming. People in this position can make mistakes because very often they don't know and fully understand their rights. Many people think that if they just give a good explanation to an officer or a prosecutor no further action will be taken. This is simply not true. It takes an Overland Park criminal defense attorney who knows the laws and knows how to aggressively defend a client to successfully fight back. You need to know your best opportunities for a defense in any drug crime accusation.
Drug Crime Lawyer in Overland Park
Drug crimes include possession, possession with intent, cultivation, manufacturing, sales, distribution, and trafficking.
State prosecutions usually concern smaller amounts of drugs such as:
- Prescription drugs
- Crystal Meth, Methamphetamines
Almost all drug charges are felonies, except for very small amounts of marijuana. Conviction can result in a long prison sentence, large fines, and other severe penalties whether the accused is charged as an adult or a juvenile. Additional consequences include a permanent criminal record which can affect your credit, future education opportunities, employment opportunities, and other areas of your life. Having a drug crime defense lawyer on your side that is determined to pursue a successful outcome can make a difference.
If you are the subject of an investigation you need to be aware that law enforcement officers are not interested in innocence. They are only looking for evidence or statements which can be interpreted as a confession of guilt. You need experienced legal representation to protect your rights. By working with a determined criminal defense lawyer while a case is still in the investigation stage there could be an opportunity to prevent any charges from being filed. Take the time to discuss your defense strategy with Attorney Robert C. Gigstad.
