Drug Law Violations

 

Drug Law Violation Attorney in Myrtle Beach

As you are likely aware, each state has its own laws relating to illegal drug charges. The fines, potential sentences, and how certain drug charges are prosecuted vary greatly. In South Carolina, our prosecutors take drug offenses seriously, as evidenced by very aggressive laws that often mandate serious prison time as a minimum sentence, regardless of whether this is your first arrest.

While working in the solicitor’s office, attorney J. Stephen Grooms spent much of his career assigned to the drug team. During that time, he worked solely on drug-related cases. This experience has allowed him to know what the state must do to prosecute a drug offense successfully.

Whether a simple possession charge or a trafficking case, law enforcement must follow specific guidelines and honor a defendant’s rights to have the evidence they need to prosecute the charges against you. For example, something as seemingly minor as an improper search, or a search warrant that left out key details, can be the difference between a serious prison sentence or a dismissal of your charges. If you are charged with a drug offense, you should strongly consider hiring a criminal defense attorney with the background to adequately and zealously represent you or your family.
