Getting slapped with a drug charge is never a laughing matter. The resulting effects can change your life forever. Whether this is a first time offense, or the latest in a string of bad choices, you may find yourself subject to a gambit of punishments and consequences.

If you find yourself facing drug charges, one important piece of advice to consider would be to find a skilled Toledo criminal law attorney to represent you.

Having a criminal defense attorney, like me, represent your case may be one of the wisest moves you make. Attorneys may be able to help you reduce your sentence by getting the charges lessened. A committed, knowledgeable defense attorney will not look at innocence or guilt, but will look at the facts and look for ways to seek the best possible outcome for your case. Possible exceptions, defenses, and other mitigating factors could greatly affect the outcome of your case.
The Serious Consequences of Drug Charges
Your drug charges will be considered either misdemeanors, or felony offenses. Under the Federal Controlled Substances Act, your charges may be considered federal offenses, depending on the circumstances of your case. Once a judge looks at all of fact concerning your offense, possible legal consequences could include:
- Mandatory drug classes
- Loss of drivers license
- Fines in excess of several thousands of dollars
- Mandatory jail or prison time lasting months or years
- Limited work restrictions
- Limitations on future job opportunities
- Loss of rights (such as voting or certain forms of federal assistance)
