Indiana Paraphernalia Defense Attorney
There are several different levels of misdemeanors and felonies for possession of narcotics and drug paraphernalia. The most severe degrees of drug possession charges are punishable by jail time. A misdemeanor drug possession charge for pot should not be taken lightly — these charges can be stacked. That means when you plead out to a misdemeanor to get probation, you may be charged with D felony possession, which carries jail time, for the exact crime committed a second or third time. The worse your record is, the higher level of the crime you can be charged with in the future.
That is why it is so important to get the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney to keep your record as clean as possible so that you are less likely to get charged with more serious crimes in the future.
Matt LaTulip will fight to protect your rights and freedoms, beginning with a thorough investigation of the circumstances leading to your arrest. If the charges cannot be reduced or dismissed altogether, he may be able to seek alternative placement programs such as drug rehabilitation, community corrections release and diversionary programs designed to help offenders learn from their mistakes.
