You should exercise that right, as anything you say can be used against you. I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and the options available for your defense.
Protecting Your Future Against Meth Production Charges
Over the past 10 years, meth has come to be viewed as a drug that is damaging not only to the person using it, but also to the community. Meth manufacturing is a dangerous process, and law enforcement needs to hire people with special training to clean up sites where methamphetamine production has taken place. As a result, police and prosecutors have become zealous in pursuing meth cases.
However, in their zeal to catch every last person involved in the production of meth, many prosecutors put together weak cases. You may be charged with manufacturing meth simply because you possessed ingredients such as ephedrine or pseudoephedrine. However, these are common, over-the-counter drugs. Possessing these drugs doesn’t make you a criminal.
Fighting The Penalties Of Meth Possession
If you have been accused of possessing meth, it is important to begin building your defense as soon as possible. You face very serious consequences, including:
- Up to 10 years in jail
- $15,000 in fines
- Community service
If your possession charge is coupled with another drug charge, your penalties could be even more severe. Some sentences reach up to 20 years in jail with $25,000 in fines.
Due to the extreme amount of specialized resources that the government has to utilize to clean up after a meth lab and the amount of drug enforcement officials required to monitor these cases, prosecutors pursue these charges aggressively. They want to put you in jail quick and for as long as they can. Do not go up against these criminal offenses alone.
You have a right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. As your attorney, I will assert this right and provide you an aggressive defense.
