HAVE YOU BEEN CHARGED WITH A DRUG CRIME?

If you have been arrested for, or are under investigation by law enforcement in regard to any type of drug offense, now is the time to act and contact an attorney. You have the right to criminal defense counsel in the face of drug charges. Choosing to exercise this right by involving a drug crime attorney may have a significant and positive impact on the outcome of your case and therefore your ability to face a future free from incarceration and various restrictions a criminal record will have on employment, financial, housing and educational opportunities.

HOW A CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY CAN HELP.

At the King Law Firm, we are committed to helping those charged with a drug offense throughout the state of North Carolina. The King Law firm offers skilled representation if your case is in the investigatory stage and formal charges have not yet been filed against you. The King Law Firm is prepared to take on virtually any type of controlled substance case, including:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug distribution
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug cultivation
  • Possession of marijuana
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Possession with intent to sell

This may involve any of various substances that are controlled by the government, such as:

  • Heroin
  • Marijuana
  • Ecstasy
  • Cocaine
  • Crack
  • Meth
  • Prescription drugs

The King Law Firm also takes on criminal cases that involve prescription fraud, the offense of fraudulently obtaining prescription drugs. The firm’s legal team knows how daunting it can be to take on criminal charges of this nature and the team is fully prepared to go the distance in an effort to help clients build a case that will help them obtain the just outcome that they are looking for.

PENALTIES FOR A CONVICTION

Depending on the specific drug crime and whether any issues were present that would enhance sentencing, a defendant in North Carolina may face imprisonment in state prison or county jail, fines, community service, probation and/or drug rehabilitation or treatment. Most drug crimes are charged as felonies in North Carolina, meaning a defendant may face incarceration in state prison. A first drug possession offense for marijuana or a different drug that is not considered highly dangerous, however, may be charged as a misdemeanor with the defendant eligible for alternative sentencing to avoid imprisonment.

It is true that your future is at stake at this point in time, but with an aggressive approach by a knowledgeable lawyer you will have the opportunity to avoid conviction and the serious consequences this may have on various areas of your life.

North Carolina Traffic Violations Attorney

 

Why It’s Important To Have Legal Representation

Most people do not realize the impact a single speeding ticket can have. You are likely to receive a steep fine that will result in points being assessed against your license and your auto insurance will probably be increased. Other violations such as, DWI, driving on a revoked driver’s license or reckless or aggressive driving can even result in going to jail. Is it worth the risk?

Criminal Traffic Violations

Some serious traffic violations are classified as criminal. These types of violations cannot be resolved by simply paying a fine by mail. It is required that you appear in person before the court.  Criminal Traffic charges may have serious outcomes and can affect your driver license, insurance rates, and can even cause problems with your employer.

Moving Traffic Violations

Moving traffic violations carry steep fine and points are assessed against your driver license.  Often your motor vehicle insurance gets a steep increase as well. Having an experienced traffic attorney is important when facing these types of charges.

  • Seatbelt Violations
  • Running A Red Light
  • Running A Stop Sign
  • Speeding

North Carolina Misdemeanor Crimes Attorneys  

 

Although misdemeanor crimes are serious, they are far less serious than felony criminal offenses. However, it’s still very important to hire an experienced criminal lawyer to handle your misdemeanor case. An experienced North Carolina Law firm like the King Law Firm, will guide you through every step of the legal process and will increase your chances of obtaining a successful result in court.

Misdemeanors in North Carolina are separated into the following categories:

 

Class A1 misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of up to 150 days in jail and a discretionary fine. Types of crimes for a Class A1 Misdemeanor: assault with a deadly weapon, assault inflicting serious injury, assault on a female or a government employee, violation of a restraining order and sexual battery.

 

Class 1 misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of 120 days in jail and a discretionary fine.  
Types of crimes for a Class 1 Misdemeanor: possession of drug paraphernalia, larceny, possession of stolen goods, damaging real or personal property, communicating threats and prostitution.

Class 2 misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of 60 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Types of crimes for a Class 2 Misdemeanor: simple assault, disorderly conduct, resisting a police officer and carrying a concealed weapon.

Class 3 misdemeanor the least serious type of misdemeanor, carries a maximum penalty of 20 days in jail and a $200 fine.
Types of crimes for a Class 3 Misdemeanor: simple possession of marijuana, concealing goods in a store and city code violations.

If You Are Charged With A Misdeameanor Crime. 

Your case will be heard by a district court judge.  At that point you may choose to negotiate with the district attorney for a lesser charge or you may decide to plea not guilty and request a trial. It may be possible to request to have your case dismissed depending on your past criminal history, or possible serve community service or attend a substance abuse program that might result in the judge dismissing your case.

If you should decide to request a trial, the district attorney must prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Misdemeanor cases are heard before a district court judge.  The judge will hear all of the evidence and will decide if the district attorney has proved that you are guilty of the crime. If the judge finds that you are not guilty you are free to go. If the judge finds that you are guilty of the crime, he will normally sentence you at that time. The sentence can range from a small fine to a prison sentence.

The King Law Firm has many years of experience helping those who have been charged with misdemeanor crimes. Our goal is to assure you receive fair treatment and, in many cases, we are able to have cases dismissed due to lack of or insufficient evidence.
