Drug crimes are a serious matter with more consequences than you may realize. If you are convicted, Maryland has a mandatory minimum jail sentence that must be served. Whether your charges will result in a misdemeanor or felony, any marks on your criminal record will continue to impact you by hindering employment or housing opportunities. On top of that, drug convictions can result in deportation for immigrants. It is imperative that you meet with a criminal defense lawyer if you are accused of a drug crime.
Drug court may be an option if you are accused of a drug-related crime. Drug court is an alternative to traditional penalties that focuses on rehabilitation through treatment programs. If you are willing to work at rehabilitation, this can be a great option. Ask an attorney about drug court and how it could benefit you.
