Have you been arrested or are you under investigation for a drug related offense? Drug crimes in the state of Missouri are investigated heavily and prosecuted severely under federal and state laws. Being convicted of even a seemingly minor drug crime could lead to very serious, life-altering penalties. It is very important that you consult with a Springfield criminal defense attorney at Cole & Martin Attorneys at Law, LLC as soon as you have found yourself in legal trouble.
Both of our criminal defense attorneys are former prosecutors, which means that they understand how the other side approaches cases and can anticipate how to defend you against them. In fact, our team includes a former Head of Major Crimes! This insight is invaluable when it comes to anticipating how the prosecution will approach your case and to crafting a strong and effective defense against the opposition.
There are a wide range of different drug crimes for which you could be arrested. This includes possession, possession with intent, sale and distribution, trafficking, manufacturing, and more. At our firm, we know how scary and overwhelming a drug crime charge or arrest can be. Our role is to help you understand the legal process and help you navigate your case.
The exact consequences involved in a drug offense conviction depends on the amount of drug in question, as well as the exact alleged crime. These penalties can include jail or prison time, costly fines, mandatory counseling and probation, and more.
