Legal Support For Drug Possession Cases

Most individuals arrested for drug possession of common drugs like marijuana, meth, hashish, cocaine, heroin, LSD, PCP, or ecstasy can face penalties as follows:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Drug programs

A judge may order additional penalties of community service, and periodic chemical testing depending on the type of drug and the circumstances of the possession crime. The presence of prior convictions and use of weapons can increase the punishments. A first time offense for a small amount of drug may result in minimal penalties and fines. Attorney Scott Miller understands the harsh consequences connected with a drug possession conviction and the affects it has on the future of an offender. He challenges prosecutor evidence and protects the rights of client during all steps of a criminal action whether inside or outside of the courtroom. He knows how to get results for his clients.
