F3 Trafficking in marijuana with a 1 year gun spec --- dismissed

My client's brother, who suffered from a developmental disability, was "interviewed" by the police in order to find out who owned marijuana and a gun in the brother's apartment.  They put a load of pressure on the brother who then told the police my client was to blame.

I was able to show that there was no evidence linking my client and the jury would see through the pressure they put on the affected brother.

On my advice my client stuck to his guns and demanded a jury trial.  When the time for trial came, the charges were dismissed.


 

Ohio Drug Trafficking Law


An individual charged with the trafficking of drugs faces an important decision when they make the choice to retain the services of an attorney.  Drug offenses carry with them the possibility of many hard sanctions, such as the inability to drive for six months to five years.  Sale of just one gram of marihuana can result in the suspension of your license for six entire months.  There is also the possibility that you may face mandatory prison time and then have the mandatory driver's license suspension.

I believe that it is very important that you know exactly what it is you face.  I am available to you twenty-four hours a day.  Unless in court or otherwise prohibited from answering my phone, I am immediately available for emergencies, such as when a search warrant being served on your home.  If you are in trouble, are being investigated, or have been charged, then you need to call me immediately.  I offer a free initial consultation so that you understand your situation prior to hiring me.

Below are examples of what you face when charged with a trafficking crime for some of the more common drugs.
