– Drug Possession Charges

Being charged with a drug crime in Nevada is a serious matter. Drug possession crimes may be charged as a felony or misdemeanor charge, depending on the type of substance in your possession and the amount you have. Penalties for drug crimes can include jail time, taking classes, attending drug treatment and paying heavy fines. In addition to consequences for being charged with a drug crime, criminal drug possession charges can affect the custody of your children, your ability to drive, your ability to obtain or hold a professional license as well as other aspects of your life. If you are charged with a drug crime, here are five things you should know.

1. Yes – Illegally Possessing Prescription Drugs and Even Some OTC Drugs Can Result in You Being Charged with A Drug Crime.

Aenean vulputate odio mauris, suscipit iaculis diam sodales ut. Pellentesque vitae massa vitae massa tempor auctor in a ante. Fusce id urna posuere, facilisis turpis non, imperdiet ligula. Ut rutrum euismod orci sit amet porttitor. Quisque nisl massa, rhoncus interdum consectetur vitae, pellentesque non neque. Vivamus et semper velit.

2. The Amount of Drugs in Your Possession Matters If You Are Charged With A Drug Crime.

Whether you are charged with a felony or misdemeanor drug crime, or whether you are charged at all, depends on the amount of drugs you have in your possession. Certain drugs may result in a drug crime even if you are found with very small amount. The penalties for drug crimes also vary depending on the amount of drugs you have in your possession.

3. Even A Small Drug Crime Can Go On Your Criminal Record

Even if a charge is ultimately dismissed, being charged with a drug crime itself will go on your record. Most employers run background checks on new hires and even being charged with a drug crime could keep you from being hired. A drug crime defense attorney may be able to get a drug charge expunged or sealed if certain requirements are met.

4. A Good Attorney Makes a Difference.

If you believe the case is straightforward, it might seem unnecessary to hire a defense attorney. However, an attorney is in drug crime charges and criminal defense can have a significant impact on your case. A knowledgeable drug crime defense lawyer will consider various angles of your case to have your charges reduced or dropped.
