Answers For Drug Charge Questions

Drug charges can originate from a variety of situations. Sometimes, a simple traffic or pedestrian stop leads to criminal charges; sometimes, a person is apprehended during a transaction; in other cases, a suspect falsely accuses a friend or acquaintance of being a dealer in order to lessen his or her own charges.

A drug conviction can have many negative effects on a convicted person’s life. Consequences can include fines, probation, jail time, mandatory counseling and treatment, and in the case of college students, the loss of financial aid.
