You see the headlines on the news every week, “Opioid Epidemic in America.” Our country is facing a real and deadly danger from prescription drugs. One place that easily measures the rate of the problem is the legal system; another place is the morgue.
Drug possession charges are more than an inconvenience to your schedule. They certainly are inconvenient for the party charged who is expected to show up to court, pay the fines, successfully attend probation or drug court, or even spend time in jail. Another inconvenience is the arrest that appears on your record and follows you for the rest of your life. With the exception of marijuana possession, the laws have gotten harsher toward drug possession over the years.
No, what a drug possession charge is at the core is a cry for help. It is a major indicator that a person’s life has gotten off track and is now encountering legal repercussions because of poor choices or an addiction. This is a wake-up call to the person charge and those that care about him or her. Contact Mark J. Geiger today to discuss your case and let us help you find hope.
