Drug Offense Facts

A drug offense may be a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the quantity and type of drug found by law enforcement. Penalties may include jail or prison time, a fine, seizure of assets (including vehicles), loss of a driver’s license, and being required to register as a narcotics offender. Alternative sentences may be given in certain cases. Because the potential penalties are so severe, it is important to obtain a skilled criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to obtain the best results under the particular facts and law of your case.

Attorney Peter M. Liss can help you by:

  1. 1 Advising you and keeping you updated at all times on your case status
  2. 2 Arguing for lower bail
  3. 3 Interviewing witnesses and police
  4. 4 Gathering evidence supporting your defenses
  5. 5 Making court motions.This may include a “motion to suppress evidence” if you were illegally stopped and arrested, or the drugs were found in some other illegal search and seizure. A successful motion to suppress may result in some or all of the charges being dismissed
  6. 6 Evaluating all legal defenses available in your case. These can include insufficient evidence, innocence, having a valid prescription for the drug (including a medical marijuana prescription), and other defenses
  7. 7 Seeking transfer of the case to drug court (available in some cases). Drug court is a type of diversion program where you are given an opportunity to prove that you can stay off drugs and follow other conditions; if you do, the charges may then be dismissed
  8. 8 Seeking reduction of charges (when available)
  9. 9 Representing you at trial or in a plea bargain
  10. 10 Presenting the best legal defenses for your case
  11. 11 Seeking alternative sentencing, or the lowest sentence available. Alternative sentences (available in some cases) can include a drug diversion class as an alternative to jail, alcohol and/or drug rehabilitation programs, electronic monitoring / house arrest, work furlough, and counseling
