Radcliff Drug Crime Defense Attorneys
Defending the Rights of Our Hardin County Clients
Drugs have become heavily stigmatized in the United States. Being charged with a drug-related crime can lead to serious consequences, and a conviction could result in significant jailtime, probation, fines, and difficulty securing future employment. Even minor cases involving possession can result in considerable penalties.
Our Radcliff drug crime defense lawyers at Musselwhite Meinhart & Staples are prepared to do whatever it takes to protect you and your family. We realize getting charged with a drug crime can become overwhelming, but we are here to answer your questions and help you understand your legal options. Our team is experienced in aggressively defending our clients to minimize or eliminate the impact of drug-related charges, and we can offer you the individualized, honest, and compassionate attention your case deserves.
Why You Need Experienced Legal Representation to Fight Drug Crime Charges in Kentucky
Law enforcement and prosecutors have made it a priority to pursue drug offenders. You are unlikely to be extended any leniency in court, even if this was your first offense. Prosecutors also tend to use what are called “sentence enhancers,” or contributing circumstances that can amplify your sentence. You may even be nebulously hit with charges that do not reflect the reality of your situation, like if you are erroneously accused of trafficking when you had no intent to distribute.
Note that Kentucky has some especially draconian laws on the books surrounding drug crimes. Even the possession of drug-related paraphernalia, like pipes or rolling papers, is considered illegal and can lead to serious charges.
All drug crimes, no matter how small, will benefit from professional legal representation familiar with state and federal laws. We can review what you have been charged with and the facts of your case before walking you through the legal defenses and other relief options that might be available to you. If you have been arrested, we can also work with your family to help secure bail.
The penalties for a drug crime conviction are almost always substantial. The specific consequences you might face will depend on the type of drug involved, the amount of it, where the crime occurred, who else was involved, if you have any prior offenses, and any other extenuating factors.
In Kentucky, you can be charged with drug trafficking, which carries more serious penalties than simple possession, if you are found with a large quantity of drugs, packing materials, scales, and other similar items. We can help defend you against charges stemming from drug possession, drug trafficking, and drug sales.
