If you have been charged with a drug crime related to prescription drugs, you should know that your future is in jeopardy.
Many people who are charged with seemingly minor drug crimes, such as drug possession, are often tempted to plead guilty just so that they can move on from the terrible experience and leave it in their past.
However, doing that can have a major impact on your life for years to come.
Anyone who is charged with a crime involving prescription drugs such as Percocet, Adderall or OxyContin should speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer before deciding to plead guilty to the charges they face.
Although you may think that all of the evidence is stacked against you, there may still be a way to win your case, or plead to a lesser charge, at the very least.
Pleading guilty means that you will have a criminal record that could stand in the way of you getting a job or qualifying for a loan. It could also result in you losing your financial aid for college, or getting you kicked out of school altogether.
As you may know, your case will be assigned to a public defender if you cannot afford to hire an attorney. However, public defenders are extremely over-worked and your case will not get the attention it deserves.
By contacting our Columbus law firm, you know that you will be getting an attorney who will fight for you every step of the way. With your entire future at stake, you can’t afford not to schedule a free consultation with us right away.
