Miranda rights are in place when drug charges are made

We have all seen on television when the police put handcuffs on suspects of crimes and read them their Miranda rights. It is so familiar to us that we can actually quote it along with them. The television does not tell the whole story though.

Right to counsel: What is it?

While all drug crimes are serious, drug trafficking carries much more severe penalties than simple possession. Seeking the counsel of a criminal defense attorney who deals with drug offenses on a regular basis can help ensure you thoroughly understand all of the aspects of your case. Drug trafficking crimes are some of those most serious and can have mandatory minimum sentences of years in jail, including for first-time offenders.

Drug possession: What are some of your defense options?

While drug possession charges take place every day in Chicago and across the rest of the state, that doesn't do much to alleviate the fear and uncertainty that happens when you find yourself being arrested. Because the circumstances around each drug possession charge are so varied, there are many possible defense options for defendants to consider. It's important to get an attorney's advice on which defense strategy is the best option for your case.
