On behalf of Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A. posted in drug charges on Friday, October 28, 2016.
We recently discussed how a new synthetic opioid is illegal in Florida. That is only one of the many illegal substances that can lead to criminal charges in this state. For people who are facing drug charges of any sort, learning about their defense options is a priority. We can help you learn about what options you might have.
When it comes to drug cases, simply levying a punishment for a crime isn’t always the best thing to do. In some cases, the underlying issue has to be addressed. This could mean getting rehabilitation services for a person who has a drug addiction. It could mean trying to find ways to help individuals make money legally if drug dealing is the only way they know to support themselves.
Many drug cases have these underlying problems that are all too easy to ignore. Yes, individuals might get sober while they are in prison or jail. But, what will happen when they get out?
If you are facing drug charges and know that you need help for something more than just a simple criminal defense, we can help you to learn if there are any options that the court has that might help you. Even though it is much easier to just do your time of incarceration, that isn’t always what is best for you.
No matter what type of drug charges you are facing, we can help you to plan your defense. This might include diversion program applications or plea negotiations. You can let us know what you are willing to do and we will go from there.
