Major Drug Offenses (Felony)

Controlled substances and drug offenses are some of the most serious charges a person can face. A conviction for drug offenses can preclude many activities, opportunities, and benefits a person can achieve. A drug conviction prevents someone from getting government student loans, housing subsidies, professional licenses, and many job opportunities. Further, a drug conviction can result in expulsion from schooling, removal from home, a loss of the home, personal property, cars, money or via forfeiture, freezing of all funds, a permanent felony record, and denial for public assistance and many other public programs including grants, loans, and special business designations. Drug laws also contain some of the most complex sentencing statutes, guidelines, and schemes compared to either crimes including violent felonies. Possessing a significant quantity of a controlled substance can lead to a sentence of life imprisonment. Further, conspiracy charges are very common in controlled substance cases and often entangle innocent, unknowing persons in a criminal case and facing significant penalties.
