North Carolina delivers severe penalties for individuals convicted of drug offenses. It is imperative to contact an experienced lawyer as soon as you suspect that you are under investigation for a drug crime. Attorney Michael J. Macht is a fierce defender of our clients' rights, and he has substantial experience handling cases involving serious drug crimes.
Did Authorities Charge You With A Drug Trafficking Offense?
Charges of possession with intent to sell and charges of trafficking are both serious offenses to face. The difference between these charges comes down to the amount of a controlled substance allegedly uncovered. A trafficking conviction is more serious and carries severe penalties, including a mandatory prison term and a hefty fine. If you face a trafficking charge, Mike can help you retain an expert to weigh and determine if the substance falls under the trafficking volume amount.
Did Authorities Have A Search Warrant?
In drug cases, it is imperative to question every aspect of the case. You have rights that are protected under the constitution, and Mike can examine every move police made as he investigates your case to determine whether police violated your rights. Whether you face a charge of intent to sell or trafficking, Mike can put every effort toward getting your charges reduced or your case dismissed, but he is more than ready to take your case to trial to aggressively protect your rights.
