Aggressive Defense for Criminal Drug Charges
Among of the most widely prosecuted crimes in Michigan are drug and narcotic offenses. The state enforces stiff penalties for conviction on criminal drug charges, such as manufacture, possession and trafficking. Even more stringent are the federal penalties for those convicted of drug crimes involving:
- Crack Cocaine
- Prescription Drugs
- All other illegal drugs
The penalties for misdemeanor and felony charges may include large fines and court costs, prison or jail time, probation and/or court costs. Further, having a drug charge combined with an OWI charge can compound penalties. In addition, having a drug charge on a criminal record may impact the opportunities available to a person for college, employment and housing.
Expungement May Be Available
As a defense attorney for criminal drug charges, Cody Crane understands how confusing the criminal justice system can be – especially for first-time offenders. He works diligently to have charges dismissed or reduced and to plead for diversion instead of conviction. For cases where conviction occurs, expungement may be an option.
From marijuana possession to intent to sell a controlled substance, Attorney Crane is a strong advocate for those facing criminal drug charges.
