Last week, we discussed the case of the grandma who was putting marijuana in her peanut brittle and pralines. If you recall, she faced criminal charges for those confectionary choices. In the end, she received probation and a felony on her criminal record. In her case, it is alleged that she was selling or sharing the laced goodies but was able to plea down to a lesser charge and stay out of prison.
We know that the ultimate goal of anyone facing criminal charges is to stay out of prison. Ideally, most people would like to be found not guilty. We can’t promise that you will be able to work out a plea deal that keeps you out of prison. We can’t promise that you will be found not guilty. What we can promise you is that we will work hard to present your defense, and we will help to protect your rights throughout the case.
In some cases, we might be able to work out a deal for you to go through accelerated rehabilitative disposition if it is your first drug possession charge. That could mean that your record would be expunged once you complete the required steps of the program. Of course, you would have to be accepted into the program, which is something we can fight for.
We can also review the circumstances of your case to determine if all evidence in your case was lawfully obtained. If there are things that were amiss, we can investigate them to determine if any unlawful methods were used in collecting that evidence. Once we have thoroughly reviewed your case, we can help you to understand your options for your defense.
