Drug Possession in Bellevue
There are a variety of different factors that a prosecutor and judge need to consider with drug crimes. It is important that you have a criminal defense attorney who can affectively communicate with them to have your side of the story heard. A drug conviction can result in a felony conviction which comes with possible jail, fines, probation, court ordered treatment, and loss of gun and voting rights, amongst other things. If you are being accused of actual delivery or manufacturing, the consequences can be even more severe.
The actual penalties you will be facing is dependent on several different factors, including:
- What type of drug was involved
- How much of the drug was involved
- Whether the drug was for personal consumption or not
- Whether you have a felony score
- Whether weapons were involved or in your possession
When facing severe consequences, it is important to have an experienced Bellevue criminal defense attorney who you can rely on. Drug charges can be tricky, so you need to speak to an attorney as soon as possible to figure out what is best for your future.
