Does Your Drug Charge Involve Marijuana?
Trying to keep up with the marijuana laws can be a difficult task. However, marijuana remains illegal in the state of Pennsylvania. If law enforcement suspects that you are in possession of marijuana for personal use, the penalties of a conviction can include jail time, fines and other repercussions.
No case is the same, and if convicted, your penalties will be determined by the type of drug and how much may have been in your possession.
Suspected Of Other Drug Possession?
Drug charges penalize those who possess, use or intend to distribute illicit drugs. There are harsh penalties for a drug charge conviction such as the maximum 12-month jail sentence and $5,000 fine for a first offense.
You will want to limit the possibility of facing maximum penalties for a mistake you may have made. Discuss the details of your situation to prepare a solid defense with attorney Terry Hess.
