Drug crimes are taken very seriously in Minnesota, which is why they are so aggressively prosecuted all over the state. But just as there are legitimate cases of drug use, trafficking, selling, and distribution happening, there are cases where individuals may be in the wrong place at the wrong time or the charges against them are inflated.
If you or a loved one is facing accusations of drug trafficking, selling drugs, or distributing in any way, it is your right to secure the representation of a Mankato drug crimes lawyer who knows how to get results.
Using The Facts To Secure Your Future
One of the most important aspects of your defense is digging up the facts so that you can have the best possible future. The facts may show that the seriousness of the charges against you was not warranted or that you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. The facts can play in your favor.
The strategy is designed around the specifics of your case so that you can receive the best possible result. There are five degrees of drug crimes with first degree possession or sale of drugs being the most serious of the five. The more serious the charge, the more severe the penalties, if convicted. The goal is to keep you from getting convicted or to reduce the charges to where the penalties are as minimal as possible.
Fighting For The Best Result
The type of drug also contributes to the seriousness of the charges. Each illegal drug is classified into schedules. Each schedule has a specific jail or prison term and a specific fine assigned for it. Schedule I drugs are the most dangerous with Schedule V being the least dangerous.
Regardless of which drug you are accused of possessing, selling, or trafficking, you can have a solid defense that is designed specifically for your case in order to achieve the most desirable outcome in the matter. If drug trafficking is the charge, then the case may be tried on the federal level due to multiple states being involved. When that is the case, you need a federal drug crimes attorney who knows how to navigate the law and advocate for you against federal attorneys who will use their vast resources to attempt to reach a conviction.
