Defend Yourself From Drug Charges In Missouri
Drug crimes are some of the most common criminal cases in and around Kirksville. Don’t let the war on drugs turn into a war against your future. And don’t expect a prosecutor, judge or jury to treat you with compassion or understanding. Do, however, choose as your lawyer someone who empathizes with you while also giving it to you straight. If you have been charged with a drug crime, there are steps you can take right away to improve your chances of a favorable defense outcome such as the following:
- Deferred prosecution
- Probation instead of jail
- A quick release from jail followed by a successful defense
- Reduced charges and/or penalties
- A case dismissal
- An acquittal at trial
No outcome is guaranteed in a criminal case, but you can improve your chances of receiving a favorable outcome. I am defense attorney Patrick Nolan, and I have extensive experience litigating marijuana cases. I keep up with Missouri’s evolving laws. Missouri does allow for medical marijuana, but even that is technically at odds with federal law. Under federal law, marijuana is still an illegal controlled substance. If you face potential federal charges before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, your case is especially delicate, and you will need the best defense lawyer you can find, beginning at the local level.
