Drug possession charges are serious, even when the amounts involved are seemingly small. The government’s ongoing war on drugs has resulted in stiff penalties for conviction of drug possession. Because of the high stakes, it is important for individuals facing possession charges to retain an experienced and knowledgeable defense lawyer.
Experienced Lawyer To Defend Against Drug Possession Charges
At our Hartford law firm, the Law Offices of Robert B. Muchinsky, LLC, our principal attorney defends clients against drug possession charges. He investigates the facts, reviews the evidence, verifies that the police had probable cause to search you or your property, and identifies weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. This allows him to build a strong defense in pursuit of the best possible outcome.
Our lawyer handles all types of drug possession cases, including those involving:
- Cocaine and crack
- Prescription drugs
- Drug manufacturing or growing
Depending on the amount and type of drug, a conviction could lead to a sentence of 30 years and a fine of $250,000. Possessing drugs in a defined school zone can result in a mandatory two-year prison sentence in addition to the basic penalty, even if you had no idea that you were in a school zone. We also handle drug trafficking and other drug cases.
Defending Students, Protecting Their Futures
Whenever appropriate, we seek alternatives to jail for our clients who are convicted of drug possession. There are a number of programs that help individuals address substance abuse issues and that keep them out of prison. This is particularly important for clients who are students at the many colleges in the area, including the University of Hartford, Trinity College, Wesleyan University, Quinnipiac University, Yale University and the University of Connecticut. We know that a criminal conviction can ruin a young person’s future. We seek ways to provide students with a second chance.
