Felony Drugs | Frankfort, KY | True Guarnier & Ayer LLP
 

Felony Drugs

In defending a felony drug charge, an important factor in determining the seriousness of your drug case is the type, quantity and intended purpose for the illegal drugs. Threshold amounts determine everything. A person possessing a few pounds is obviously going to be convicted differently than someone carrying a few ounces. The prosecutor will attempt to make larger amounts seem as if you intended to sell the substance or worse – that you were manufacturing it yourself, even if it's not true.
An individual's record can greatly affect how a court will view a present charge. Sentences for similar crimes or past felony probation could mean definite jail time without the proper representation, especially if you have an existing criminal record.
