Even if you were caught in possession of a small amount of drugs, whether it was marijuana, meth, cocaine, heroin or prescription drugs, your life will change. These types of charges can be a real headache. You face months of court dates, evaluations, expenses and some difficult decisions. Both North Carolina and Federal statutes are based on the type of substance you possessed. The system of classification is based on “schedules”. Your charges are based on these schedules.
You could serve less than 30 days up to a year in prison in State Court, and in Federal Court you could end up in prison for many years. Gillette Law will look at every chance of errors during the initial arrest, the officer’s actions, the evidence and the police report. We will fight for your rights and, if we can’t get the charges dismissed, for reduced sentences.
