When It Comes To Drug Charges, You Have Rights

The mere accusation of a drug charge can wreak serious havoc on your future. It is important to remember that you have the right to defend yourself. When you find yourself in this situation, the Law Offices of Michael Pollok, PLLC, is here to help. We have worked with clients throughout New York who need proper legal representation. From beginning to end, we are here to help.

Understanding The Law Can Be Confusing

New York law divides drug charges into two main categories, which are controlled substances and marijuana. The penalties range based on a variety of factors and it can be difficult to understand. For example, possession of a controlled substance can be considered a felony. This can be punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $100,000. Selling marijuana, of any amount, can be considered a felony or a misdemeanor. Understandably, it’s hard to know the regulations that are in place. This is where the right attorney can help.

Simply put, possession of 2 ounces to 8 ounces of any drug is considered a misdemeanor. Anything more than that will be considered a felony. While you may not realize it, there are a number of possible defenses. This includes temporary and lawful possession or having a legitimate prescription. It’s also possible to challenge the process during which the evidence was gathered. We will examine all areas of your case and discuss all of the potential options you are facing. Our goal is to help you move forward.
