Can I Go To Jail For A Drug Charge?

San Antonio is a hot spot for drug activity due to its close proximity to the Mexican border. Local law enforcement officers and federal agencies, such as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), are quick to respond and act to any reports of drug-related traffic or illegal drug activity. If you suspect you are under investigation or you have been arrested for an alleged drug offense, the legal counsel you choose will have a significant impact on the outcome of your case.

Drug charges are not something to be taken lightly. You cannot expect a prosecutor to exhibit any leniency in these types of cases due to the potential dangers and risks posed by the distribution and use of illegal drugs, narcotics and other controlled substances. If you are convicted on a drug charge, the penalties you will be subjected to will depend heavily on the type of drug, the quantity of the drug, the severity of the crime and whether or not it is a state or federal case.

Even an individual who receives a first-time conviction for possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana will still receive a 180-day jail sentence and be required to pay fines up to $2,000. The penalties for more severe charges will only go up from there. With all that you stand to lose, isn't a free case evaluation with a San Antonio drug crime lawyer worth your time and effort? If you want to defend your rights and improve your chances of being able to avoid jail time, I strongly recommend you contact my firm right away and ask for me, Kerrisa Chelkowski. Any delay could put your freedom and future at risk. Do not hesitate to act quickly!

Fierce Defense for Serious Drug Charges

As an attorney listed in the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars, I have proven myself as a San Antonio drug crime attorney who knows how to get results in even the most challenging cases. Depending on the circumstances of the situation, the best result may be to negotiate a plea bargain for a diversion program in which you would attend drug addiction treatment rather than being sent to jail or prison.

If at all possible, however, I will not hesitate to fight for an acquittal or dismissal of charges, such as by demonstrating that your rights were violated in the investigation. This may be an enormously stressful experience, but I am here to guide you through the entire criminal defense process.
