Drug offenses and convictions are serious. A conviction can carry hefty fines, a lengthy probationary sentence and even prison. All of which can be enhanced if you have any prior drug convictions. Furthermore, they can have a lasting impact on your employment, educational opportunities and even your housing situation.
If you have been charged with a Drug Offense in South Carolina it is important that you consult with an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney who will be able to review the factors around your arrest and your background. An experienced attorney will be able to determine whether there are legal challenges that can be made with regards to your arrest, any searches and seizures conducted by law enforcement and any statements you may have made.
An experienced attorney will also be able to explore whether any Diversion Programs such as Pretrial Intervention, Gateway or Drug Court might be appropriate in your particular situation. These programs, once successfully completed, will allow for your charge(s) to be dismissed and expunged, or removed, from your Criminal Record.
