We Work To Minimize The Impact Of A Drug Charge

State and federal drug laws are extremely complex. Also, many other factors can come into play when the prosecutor is determining how to charge a drug case.

A few of the factors that might affect which charges will be brought against you are:

  • The amount of the drugs involved
  • The type of drug
  • Whether you were involved in drug manufacturing or drug distribution
  • Whether there were children involved or present
  • If guns, assault weapons or other weapons were used
  • Any evidence of related criminal activity such as money laundering or prostitution

The criminal justice system in the United States is based upon the presumption that people accused of a crime are innocent until proven guilty. The government must prove to almost 99 percent certainty that you are guilty of the crime for which you are charged. The phrase, "beyond a reasonable doubt," refers to the high level of proof of guilt in criminal cases.

The experienced criminal defense attorneys at Willis & Gresek Counsellors at Law will be able to determine whether the government's case is strong enough to support the charges against you. Often, the government's attorney will charge you with a lesser offense in exchange for your guilty plea. This means that you will be giving up the right to a trial by jury, which is a fundamental constitutional right.
