The consequences for drug offenses in Asheville, NC are varied: one crime could result in probation, another, mandatory prison time. If you are under investigation or have been charged with a drug crime, hiring a criminal defense attorney to build your defense is critical.
Perhaps the strongest part of your case's defense is whether or not police had probable cause to search you, your car, or your home for drugs at the time of arrest. If they did not, your case could have a solid defense as the absence of probable cause can lead to suppression of evidence.
In other cases, including even felonies, you may be entitled to have your drug crime charges dismissed through a variety of deferred prosecution options.
