Handling Marijuana Possession Defense And Other Drug Crimes
As a former prosecutor for Washington County, founding attorney Eric Thole has tried most of the misdemeanor and felony drug crimes. He is likely familiar with the prosecutors and judges in charge of your case, and he maintains a reputation for providing skilled and ethical criminal defense. He handles drug crimes such as:
- Drug possession
- Possession with intent to sell
- Marijuana offenses
- Widespread sale and distribution
- Drug conspiracy
- Prescription drug crimes such as those involving OxyContin
- Federal drug crimes, including federal drug trafficking
Attorney Thole will thoroughly examine the details of your case for any evidence of illegal search and seizure of your home or car, or whether highway patrol had a reasonable suspicion to perform a traffic stop if you were stopped along I-94 or another public roadway. Such evidence can mean the difference between conviction and dismissal.
He can explore all of your options for beating the charges you face, including first-time offender programs that allow you to expunge your record in exchange for completing a rehabilitation program or community service. Such programs are not for everyone or in everyone’s best interests, however. Attorney Thole is fully prepared to defend your rights in court, if necessary.
