Drug Offenses Toronto
Drug offenses are some of the most serious offenses in the US.
The simple idea of possession, trafficking or even use is highly looked down upon and as such, highly penalized.
This also means that many officers do not take time to actually clarify the facts and thus can end up with the wrong offense. This is why you need solid defense.
Criminal Lawyers Toronto guarantees you defense that comes backed-up with experience and zeal.
It is important for you to understand the boundaries that define drug offenses. The possession charge is very fluid. It defines a situation where the offender simply knows of the existence of the drugs, whether they are theirs or not, where the offender is in the same vicinity as the drugs, whether they know of their existence or not and actually having the drugs on their body. This creates beautiful loopholes that we make use of to clear your name. We have a full understanding of the law and therefore know exactly how to apply it to your advantage.
Drug offenses also define smuggling, trafficking, production, and use. There may be fewer loopholes to explore here, but we work to ensure that every rock is turned before reaching a conclusion of guilt.
Drug Offense Penalties
Being one of the biggest criminal offenses in the USA, drug offense can fetch you quite some heavy penalties. These, of course, differ depending on the actual offense. However, generally, drug offenses can fetch you a minimum of two years in jail and a $500 fine, and a maximum of 15 years in jail and a fine of $250,000. This is why it is important to ensure that you hire the best lawyers to help you with your case. If wrongly convicted, you may have to wait half your term to even start an appeal.
Are All Drug Offenses Termed As Felonies?
In this country, yes, practically all drug offenses are a crime. This includes the use of marijuana for medical purposes as even then if you are caught, you are first of all arrested and then you prove your reasons later on. Then you may be released. Possession is also, as previously mentioned, a felony, whether you are aware of being in possession or not. Here too, you will need to prove your innocence afterward. You, therefore, need a criminal defense lawyer as soon as you possibly can find one.
