Possession and other drug-related offenses

From drug possession to manufacturing, distribution and other offenses, the consequences of drug crime charges can have a permanent effect on your future. At Sheppard, White, Kachergus & DeMaggio, our Jacksonville law firm knows how difficult these allegations can be for people and their entire families in Florida. 

If you are accused of any kind of drug crime, you may face an array of problems. Depending on the details of your case, you could face a lengthy prison sentence and be ordered to pay financial penalties. However, the repercussions can go much farther. For example, if you are a college student, these charges could have an impact on your ability to receive financial aid. Or, if you facing these accusations, you may be fired. Worse yet, you could have a hard time finding another job and your record could create challenges for you years down the road. In fact, even if you are accused of a relatively minor offense, such as the possession of drug paraphernalia, your life may be upended.

Due to the serious nature of drug crime charges, you should not waste any time reviewing your rights and figuring out which course of action to take. These offenses carry a strong stigma and it is vital to present yourself well in court. Regrettably, many people have been falsely accused of these offenses but still face consequences due to the negative connotations associated with these charges.

On our drug crimes page, you can access more information concerning drug possession and other drug-related charges.
