Drug crimes don’t just apply to drug dealers – possessing marijuana for personal use in Alabama is a Class A misdemeanor on first offense, and can be a Class C felony as a subsequent offense. Even unlawful possession of a prescription medication can be a crime. Moreover, a criminal drug conviction will hang over you for years, affecting everything from your ability to get a job to your ability to vote.
Penalties for convictions of drug crimes in Alabama can vary by drug type, amount of drug, involvement of minors, involvement of weapons and the type of crime perpetrated:
Felony drug crimes
Misdemeanor drug crimes
Penalties for federal crimes are available on the Drug Enforcement Administration website.
Every fact is important because an error by police or prosecutors may be sufficient to get your charge dismissed or substantially reduced. At the very least, any imperfection in the prosecution’s case can lead to a case dismissal or a beneficial plea bargain with alternate penalties like work-release or community service. Your criminal lawyer must have full insight into Title 13A of the Alabama Criminal Code, and in-depth experience with the state’s Courts can create such a result. And that insight and experience is what you get with Barclay Law LLC.
While the federal government and public policies are working toward alternatives to incarceration following drug crime conviction, you still need a drug crime defense lawyer with your best interests in mind. Call Barclay Law LLC at 205-488-2797 or contact us online for a free consultation.
