Stillwater Attorney And Former Prosecutor Defends Against Drug Possession Charges
Drug possession convictions not only bring jail time and large fines; but they also leave a permanent mark on your criminal record. Located in Stillwater, the Thole Law Firm helps individuals throughout Washington County overcome their drug charges and move forward with their lives.
In Minnesota, it is illegal to possess controlled substances – such as marijuana and cocaine – and to possess prescription drugs – such as OxyContin and Percocet – without a prescription. Depending on the type and amount of drugs found in your possession, you may be facing serious felony charges.
A guilty verdict will not only expose you to long mandatory prison sentences and large fines, but it will also leave a permanent mark on your criminal record. Even after serving your time, a felony drug conviction will strip you of many of your personal liberties – including the right to vote and the right to own a gun – and you will find it difficult to obtain work or housing.
At the Thole Law Firm, you will find a lawyer who won’t let one mistake ruin your life. He can help you build a solid legal defense that gets you the best possible resolution of your criminal charges.
