Why do I need to retain a lawyer for a drug charge?

You can be charged with a drug possession crime when law enforcement claims that you knowingly had control and ownership over a substance restricted under state or federal law. Missouri classifies controlled substances based on their potential for abuse and addiction, and whether or not there is an accepted medical usage for their effects. The drug crime attorneys at Millikan Wright, LLC are familiar with the local laws in St. Louis and how these may affect the outcome of your case.

Being convicted of possession carries lasting consequences, including:

  • $5,000 fine or more
  • 7 years or more in jail
  • Probation
  • Loss of driver’s license
  • Loss of professional licenses
  • Ineligibility to apply for federal loans

Depending on the severity of the alleged crime and whether you have additional criminal convictions or drug charges on your record, the sentencing imposed may be different. When your life and future are at stake, you cannot afford to take any chances! Let our aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorneys go to work for you!
