If there is one thing that people in Maryland who face drug charges have in common it is that the potential consequences for a conviction are serious. From misdemeanor charges on up, having a conviction for a drug offense on your record can be a burden that might seem insurmountable. That is why crafting a defense strategy when you are facing drug charges in Maryland should be a serious and persistent effort.
What are your options?
The aftermath of any type of arrest can leave the defendant bewildered and wondering what is next. Law enforcement officials and prosecutors have a tendency to make drug charges seem straightforward – you might even be convinced that you have been caught “red-handed.” However, every defendant has the right to present a defense at trial, if that is the best option for their own unique case.
What works for one person may not work for another. Some people make the decision to attempt to engage in plea negotiations with prosecutors to get the case done and behind them. Others decide to fight the charges all the way to trial. Your options could be anywhere on that spectrum. You’ll want to assess all potential options before making a decision that could impact your life for years to come.
