Fighting against drug charges in Virginia

When a Virginia resident is suspected of committing a drug-related crime, it is understandable that they would be concerned about what the future holds. The type of crime varies, depending on the situation, but a majority of drug charges fall into one of two main categories: possession or distribution.

Understanding the complexities of a drug charge

There are many complexities when it comes to drug charges. The type of drug, the quantity of the drug, and various other factors are all taken into consideration when charges are filed. Small amounts are typically called "simple" possession, while large qualities may lead to significant penalties, as authorities may assume or suspect you "possessed with the intent to distribute."

Legal representation could help in defense against drug charges

What starts out as a run of the mill traffic stop could quickly turn into being charged with a drug crime.
