Drug charges can range from possession to drug trafficking. These cases can be handled in state court or federal court, depending on the circumstances of the case. You have to think carefully about what is going on with your case so that you can decide what you are going to do.
There are two primary options that might occur in these cases. One of these is that you might opt to pursue a plea deal. This can put you in partial control of what happens with the outcome of the case. You might be able to do some damage control in these cases. For some, being able to accept drug court or a plea deal for a lesser charge might be enticing.
In all criminal matters, you have the right to a trial. This is often the more time-consuming option because these cases are likely to take longer. There is also more preparation for these cases because you have to get ready to present your case to jury for them to decide your fate.
We know that you might have a drug addiction that led to the charges or maybe you needed a quick way to make some cash. We might be able to use these points as part of your defense, but they must be carefully considered.
It is important that you consider all of the options that you have for your defense. You shouldn’t get so stuck on one of them that you push all the others away. You shouldn’t make the mistake of waiting until the last minute to work on your defense. Get started early so you have time to strategize and plan.
