A state or federal drug offense can result in a lengthy prison sentence and/or forfeiture of property. In fact, convictions for drug offenses sometimes result in sentences harsher than those individuals receive for the commission of murder. Even misdemeanor drug offenses can result in jail time, the loss of driving privileges, loss of employment, loss of professional license and the loss of financial aid for school and/or college. If you are facing a drug charge it is imperative that you have an experienced, knowledgeable, accomplished attorney in this area of criminal defense.
Mr. Bennett has successfully defended hundreds of individuals charged with drug offenses on the state and federal level ranging from state misdemeanor charges of possession of drugs to federal drug conspiracy offenses carrying a recommended sentence of life in prison. He represents clients facing virtually any state or federal drug offense including, but not limited to, the following:
- DRUG ABUSE
- POSSESSION OF DRUGS OR PARAPHERNALIA
- FEDERAL POSSESSION WITH INTENT TO DISTRIBUTE
- FEDERAL CONSPIRACY
- TRAFFICKING, TRANSPORTING, DISTRIBUTING ANY ILLEGAL DRUG
- RECOVERY OF VEHICLES, CASH OR PROPERTY FORFEITED AS A RESULT OF DRUG OFFENSES
- UNAUTHORIZED SALE OR POSSESSION OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND PAIN KILLERS
Mr. Bennett's first goal is to avoid conviction by constitutionally challenging the stop, warrant or arrest giving rise to the drug offense charge. He has extensive and vast experience identifying, addressing and resolving constitutional issues particularly involved in this area of criminal defense. Mr. Bennett will proceed to trial if it is in the best interest of his client. If the evidence in the case demonstrates that conviction is likely, he will do everything legally possible to prevent his client from being incarcerated or to obtain the least amount of time for his client to serve.
