Strong Defense Against Drug and Weapons Charges
The war on drugs is not over. Criminal penalties for drug charges like possession, distribution and trafficking are as strong as ever. Even a conviction for a seemingly small-time crime like marijuana possession may stay on your criminal record — which is accessible to potential employers and landlords who run criminal background checks.
Weapons charges are similar in many ways to drug charges. With drug charges, the sentencing possibilities change based on the type and amount of illegal narcotic. For example, possession of marijuana is a different type of crime than possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.
With weapons charges, mere possession of a gun during the commission of a crime can lead to sentencing enhancements. The same may be true if the gun is unlicensed. Another weapons charge that may lead to sentencing enhancements is the charge of felon in possession of a weapon.
