Protect yourself while building your defense

We recently discussed how having a defense attorney can help you when you want to work out a plea deal in your criminal justice case. This is only one of the ways that having a lawyer can help you out in these cases. We know that you might have questions about what your charges mean and what you can do to fight them. We can help you answer these and more.

Know how a lawyer can help you come to a plea deal

In some criminal cases, your best hope for resolving your case in a timely and suitable manner is the plea bargain. This is something that requires you to work with the prosecution to come to an agreement about the charge you are facing or the sentence that you will face. In exchange for them working with you, you will plead guilty in court.

Help your loved one go through the criminal justice process

You love your family members, even the ones who don't always make the best decisions. If your loved one is on drugs, you might find out that he or she is facing drug charges. These are very serious charges that must be taken seriously. We know that you only want to help your loved one. While we fully understand that you want to help, make sure that you are actually helping and not enabling.

Drug charges might be a call to action for an addict

We recently discussed how people who are facing drug crimes often need rehabilitation if they want a fair shot at getting out of the criminal justice system's loop. Many people joke that the door to the jail is a revolving door because many of the same people come and go on a regular basis. We know that when you have a drug addiction, you might feel helpless and powerless as you go through the criminal justice system.

Does rehabilitation have a place in criminal justice?

People who are charged with crimes face an uncertain future, especially when they know that a conviction is likely. One issue that plagues the criminal justice system is that the focus is placed on punishment and not on rehabilitation. It is very easy to tell someone he or she has a problem, but it is much more difficult to find a solution to help the problem. The issue of punishment or rehab is one that is subject of much debate in the criminal justice system.

Know the options in drug cases and how they affect you

We recently discussed the various drug classifications that can have an impact on criminal charges that are levied against a person. This is important information because some drugs have harsher penalties associated with them. What the drug classification doesn't change is the need to fight back against the charges.

What types of drug classifications are there?

Under the Controlled Substances Act, drugs are divided into five classifications, which are called schedules. The system rates the drug based on whether it is acceptable for medical use and how likely it is to be abused. While many illegal drugs are high on the schedule list, so are some legal prescriptions because they have the potential to lead to addiction and drug abuse.
