Daytona Beach Criminal Drug Violations Lawyer

Being charged with a drug violation can be damaging to your reputation and jeopardize your record, your job and your current and future relationships. A drug crime is an offense which may be considered a federal crime, particularly if state or national borders are crossed. Drug crimes can also carry severe consequences. If you find yourself charged with a drug violation, you will need a skilled lawyer to protect yourself and your rights. A Daytona Beach Drug Violations Lawyer, Sam N. Masters, can help you with your unique case.

 

Drug violations can be serious but can also vary in degree and type. For example, large marijuana distributors may be targeted on a federal level while minor drug criminals may only be looking at minimal jail time, fines and rehabilitation. Federal drug cases are generally more complex and difficult to defend than state drug cases; however your attorney should be persistent in defending your rights in a court of law.

 

If you are accused of a drug violation, it is important that you understand your rights. Many drug offenders do not know these important factors. Some things to keep in mind about your rights:

  • The right to refuse to talk to police
  • The right to speak with an attorney
  • The right to refuse your home be search without a proper warrant
  • The right to a bond if you are arrested
  • The right to have legal/attorney representation
  • The right to seek witnesses to testify on your behalf
  • The right to testify at a trial

 

In addition, a drug violations attorney may be able to reduce or eliminate your charges if you are facing any of the following:

  • Drug Possession

  • Prison
