Drug charges could be state or federal in nature, depending on the crime for which you are accused. If you’ve been charged with an alcohol or drug crime, or if you are under investigation for any drug offense, it’s important that you get the proper legal representation. Let The Corbett Law Firm work for you.
Drug Charges in North Carolina
It’s important to remember that if you’re charged with a drug crime, you should contact your lawyer first, before you talk to anyone else, including the authorities. NC laws and statues can be quite complicated. Unfortunately, the law does not always recognize or make exceptions for those who suffer from drug addictions and need professional or medical help. Nevertheless, there are several possible scenarios where drug charges may be dismissed altogether or substantially reduced. In addition, there are circumstances where even a plea of “guilty” in a drug trial can later be dismissed and expunged from your record.
