Drug Charges

Meridith and Sam understand the serious nature of criminal drug charges.  While other states work towards decriminalizing and even legalizing some types of recreational drugs, Kentucky continues to have and enforce some of the toughest drug laws in the nation.  For example, possession of even the smallest amount of marijuana may get you a civil citation in many states and is legal in others, Kentucky courts can send you to jail for up to 45 days on a first offense, and up to 12 months if they charge you with the sale or trafficking of marijuana.  

Given the huge stakes of facing jail time, high penalties and a criminal record that can hurt your present and future career, it’s critical that you do everything you can to avoid guilt on your drug charge and/or to reduce the penalties and damage that can be done.

Drug Charges Can Harm Your Reputation and Freedom Now and Into the Future 

Remember, Kentucky continues to impose severe penalties on those found guilty of drug crimes – whether in the form of prison time, high fines, forced rehabilitation, and other penalties.  This doesn’t even include the years and even decades of damage that a criminal record for drug charges can do to your personal and professional life.  

A drug charge can haunt you in numerous ways.  For example many potential employers may be hesitant to hire you if you have a drug conviction on your record.  You might also find it more difficult to obtain housing, loans and college admission.  If you work in a profession that requires a state license, you could run into trouble having your professional license approved. 

Don’t Talk to the Police Without Speaking to a Criminal Defense Attorney

Police may try to get you to think that giving up evidence and telling them what they want to hear will make things easier on you, and that you will be penalized for consulting with a lawyer, but nothing could be further from the truth.  The government plays a lot of games to try to get you to comply with their wishes, and they will often use slippery, misleading and deceptive language to imply that certain things will happen to you if you do this or that.  This makes it all the more critical that you retain strong legal counsel as soon as possible to ensure your rights are fully protected.

In many drug cases, police bring cases against individuals only loosely connected to the drugs at issue, but Meridith and Sam won’t let you take the fall for someone else without a major fight.  Meridith and Sam will zealously and fearlessly fight to protect your constitutional rights and provide you with the best defense possible to the drug charges against you.  They won’t allow police to intimidate you into waiving your rights and they will challenge the legality and sufficiency of any “evidence” leveled against you.
