St. Louis Drug Possession Lawyer

Drug Possession Penalties in St. Louis

Have you been arrested for possession of drugs? Drug crimes are taken very seriously in Missouri; in fact, this state has some of the harshest drug penalties in the country. Attorney Brent Labovitz understands the entire criminal process based on his experience as a public defender. He is focused on criminal defense, as opposed to other areas of the law, in order to give his full attention to obtaining the most favorable outcomes for his clients. He has the knowledge and experience to aggressively represent you in court if the case goes to trial.

If you are found in possession of drugs, you may be facing a jail term of up to 7 years and fines reaching $5000. Drug possession is a Class C felony and penalized as such. Even marijuana possession, less than 35 grams, is treated as a Class A misdemeanor which could lead to $1000 in fines and a year in jail. Prosecutors are committed to doing everything possible to see to it that the maximum charges and resulting punishments are pursued. This makes it vital to have committed representation from a St. Louis criminal attorney.

Defending Against Drug Possession Charges in St. Louis

There are numerous defense strategies available if you have been charged with possession. Law enforcement officials may have violated strict search and seizure laws which can lead to having the evidence against you suppressed. Your rights may have been violated during an arrest or it could be proven that you were not actually in possession of the drugs in question. A full review of every aspect of your arrest and prosecution must be made to determine the best way to approach your case.

A possession charge may turn into a much more serious crime such as trafficking, sales or distribution. The firm is dedicated to protecting your rights and will work diligently toward having the charges against you reduced or dismissed.

If you have been charged with drug possession, contact a St. Louis possession lawyer for dedicated representation.

I would highly recommend Brent When feeling uncomfortable with the public defender in IL, I decided to seek additional information from Brent. I was impressed with Brent's knowledge and experience. I ended up firing my public defender (who was about to have me plead guilty) to hire Brent. After hiring Brent, we reviewed all of the details of my case. He immediately saw "red flags" and was able to investigate my case thoroughly, and in the end filed a motion to dismiss the case. My case was thrown out by the judge siding with Brent instead of the Attorney General from the state. In facing some significant charges, Brent was able to make me feel comfortable and I immediately thought I could trust his knowledge and experience to help me defend my rights in court. I knew he was fighting for me and could prove the charges were false. I would highly recommend Brent if you are need of a competent and professional lawyer to represent you
