A Negotiated Plea Bargain Can Reduce Sentencing for a Drug-Related Charge

By March 9, 2017 No Comments

If you have been arrested and charged with a drug-related crime, like drug manufacture, possession, or distribution, being found guilty can carry serious long-term repercussions. This can come in the form of affected driver license privileges and other limitations to future employment, financial aid as well as other factors.

Recently, many drug-related laws have changed, altering the severity of certain offenses and how they can be charged. Some drug charges can be enhanced to more serious charges with implications from multiple past offenses.

This can include charges such as:

-Drug manufacturing, possession, sales, or trafficking
-Distribution of illicit drugs
-Forging a drug prescription
-Illegal distribution, possession, or sale of prescription drugs
-The cultivation of marijuana
-The manufacturing and sale of methamphetamine
-Possession of illegal drug ingredients or equipment

In many of these cases, law enforcement acquires a significant amount of evidence before pursuing an arrest. In a situation where you might be found guilty, a plea bargain negotiation provided by Dennis Pawelek can reduce the severity of the charge or the sentencing requirements. This could also include having a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor.
