Law enforcement devotes a large amount of time and resources to fight criminal drug activities. Due to the seriousness of this drug crime, an individual arrested for selling drugs may face harsh penalties. A criminal conviction can affect an offender for the rest of his or her life. A criminal record can make it impossible to hold certain professional licenses or work in jobs that require security clearance.
Upon conviction, an offender may lose assets, personal and real property, or a child custody award following a divorce. An individual charged with drug sales should retain the counsel and defense of a skilled attorney for legal assistance and advice before making incriminating statements to the authorities. The Toney Law Firm, LLC has the knowledge and resources available to defend clients successfully when charged with drug crimes, including drug sales.
Circumstances surrounding the crime of illegal drug sales can affect the degree of sentencing. The amount of drug sales and the type of drugs, use of minors or gang members for drug selling, and whether the crime involved the use of weapons or violence can affect the decision of a judge at sentencing. It is important to have a good defense against criminal drug charges. Prosecution must present a case that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that a drug sales criminal act occurred. Defense can challenge warrants, arrest procedures, forensics, witness statements and other evidence presented to the court.
