Can You Get Drug Charges Dropped?
At the bare minimum, if the state cannot prove "scientifically" that you had an illegal substance, then your case needs to be dropped. Anything from concerns with reading your Miranda rights to a history of addiction, could potentially help you prevent prison time when confronted with possession charges.
Like all other types of possession, drug crimes are considered felonies and misdemeanors, resulting in hefty repercussions. Indictments may range from several class felonies to prison life and substantial fines.
The class by which a person faces charges can depend on the type of drugs, with more dangerous drugs receiving more steep penalties and whether or not the defendant intended to sell to minors.
