Representation for Service Members in Drug Offenses
Nationwide Military Drug Crime Attorney
Drug offenses have to do with the illegal possession, use, manufacturing, distribution, trafficking or sales of an illegal narcotic or drug paraphernalia. In civilian criminal cases, penalties can include steep fines, jail or prison time, a permanent criminal record, loss of driving privileges and more. For members of the military, being found guilty can bring about a discharge hearing, a court martial or other disciplinary actions. Please make no mistake, any drug charge is going to be prosecuted seriously and the consequences for conviction can last a lifetime, including the end of your military career.

To reach a favorable conclusion to a drug crime cases require a unique knowledge of both military and civilian law. At times, an unwarranted police stop can result in an illegal search and seizure or other improper gathering of evidence. If this can proven in your case, it may result in the evidence against you being inadmissible. A knowledgeable military criminal defense advocate will also know how to effectively challenge the use of questionable informants by law enforcement or military police and be able to locate and utilize mistakes in procedure. Also, when sufficient doubt can be raised that the drugs in question were factually yours, it can seriously weaken any case against you.
