Experienced Drug Crime Attorney Providing Representation to Clients in Poughkeepsie and Throughout the Hudson Valley Area
Assisting clients facing charges for possession, trafficking and intent to distribute
Few offenses are treated as harshly by authorities as those involving drugs. At the Law Office of Christopher S. Coleman, PLLC, we realize that a drug crime arrest can create a sense of fear and panic for you and your family. We handle drug cases on a regular basis, and we are ready to assist you in beating the charges so you can move on with your life.
We commonly handle the following types of drug crimes cases:
- Possession: Penalties for drug possession vary. For example, if accused of possessing a small quantity of marijuana, you may face misdemeanor charges. But if you have a small amount of a substance like cocaine or heroin, you may be sentenced to extensive jail time. Regardless of what you are arrested for carrying, it is in your best interest to contact a lawyer immediately.
- Trafficking: Conviction for trafficking a controlled substance can result in a lengthy jail sentence. If you are charged with drug trafficking of any kind of illegal substance, you are in serious trouble. You cannot afford to proceed without an attorney.
- Intent to distribute: If convicted of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, you may receive up to seven (7) years in prison.
The penalties for drug crimes vary based on the type of substance, the amount of substance and the location of the crime. For example, if you are accused of selling an illegal substance near a school, the prison time you face increases dramatically. In addition, if you are a repeat offender, the charges against you can be even more serious.
