Drug offense charges are grave matters of criminal law that can cause the accused to be sentenced to prison, lose his career, damage his reputation and possibly even lose his family upon conviction. While the accused may want to try to go up against drug crime charges alone, the laws and criminal justice process associated with these charges are extremely complex, and a wrong move can result in conviction, harsh penalties and a criminal record that will likely haunt a person for the rest of his life. Some of the factors that can affect the nature and severity of drug crimes charges include (but are not limited to):
The type (or “Schedule”) of drug associated with the alleged offense
The amount of the drug
Whether the drug was packaged or appeared to be packaged for sale or distribution
Whether any illegal weapons were associated with the incident
Whether any other crimes were allegedly committed during the incident
Whether the accused has prior drug convictions or a criminal record.
