Designer drug formulations are constantly changing. What is criminal and what is not? We have seen an increase in the number of people charged with possession of MDMA, Molly and bath salts.
Understanding the law is only part of our defense strategy. Every attorney should know the law, but at Randall & Stump, Criminal Defense Attorneys, we also understand the science. With the ever-changing chemical makeup of these designer drugs, it is important for your attorney to understand the substance you allegedly committed a crime with. Our firm is staffed with skilled criminal lawyers in Charlotte, NC who can aggressively stand up for your rights against any drug charges in Mecklenburg County you may be facing.
Since designer and synthetic drugs are constantly changing, the laws have to change as well. Though the case law regarding these drugs is slightly behind the trends, lawmakers are placing more importance on ensuring the public’s safety by having comprehensive laws that define and govern these types of drugs.
Using their years of experience and insight into the criminal justice system, our attorneys stay current on any changes that have occurred to state drug laws. By ensuring we fully understand all laws and consequences, we are able to more effectively advise our clients and fight the charges they are facing.
The penalties for a conviction on a drug crime are serious, and can include jail time, forfeiture and fines. If you are convicted of another type of criminal charge along with the drug charge, the penalties are increased. Regardless of your situation, help is available.
