NYC Methamphetamine Lawyers
To be arrested and charged with a drug crime is embarrassing and frustrating, especially if you have committed no crime. In such circumstances, you may be tempted to dismiss the authorities with scorn and contempt. You may not think much of the charges against you and decide it will all go away as soon as they realize they have made a mistake.
This is the worst possible attitude to take. If you have been taken into custody for methamphetamines, you are in serious trouble. Even if you know you did nothing wrong, such a grave matter must be responded to with force and vigor. Your first call should be to an attorney who has extensive experience in the handling of such cases. You should call the law offices of Spodek Law Group. An attorney with the insight, skill, and expertise to get you released and the charges dropped will come to your aid immediately.
The house you were in may have been targeted by law enforcement as a center of methamphetamine production and distribution. Methamphetamine is a controlled substance that can be taken orally, intravenously, or by inhaling. Regular use can lead to brain damage. Excessive use in one sitting can lead to dizziness, an increase in body temperature, and even death. Meth, as it is known on the street, is a highly addictive drug. Its danger also lies in the fact that highly toxic and explosive chemicals are used to produce it. Meth labs have been known to explode, causing sever casualties.
The targeting of meth labs, producers, dealers, and users is a priority of law enforcement and prosecutors. If you have been arrested for sale or possession, you can expect to be rigorously prosecuted. That is why despite your anger and resentment at being wrongfully arrested you must focus on your legal defense.
You may have been in a house in which meth was being made and sold. That in itself doesn’t make you a criminal. The state must prove its case against you, and if you have done nothing wrong your lawyer will ensure that you are exonerated and allowed to go home.
Sentencing is quite harsh for anyone convicted of selling or possessing methamphetamines. Penalties range from a year to life in prison. It is because meth use has led to some of the most grotesquely violent crimes ever seen that the sentencing guidelines are so severe. You should not have your life taken away from you just because you happened to be in the vicinity of methamphetamines. Your lawyer will question and scrutinize every piece of evidence the police have on you. They will ensure that you do no go down on the basis of weak and circumstantial evidence.
If you are guilty of the sale or possession of methamphetamines, if you did what you have been charged with and know the police can prove it, you still need a lawyer. In many cases, the police are after a larger figure in the drug world. If you know something or have witnessed something, you may be able to make an arrangement that significantly reduces your sentence in exchange for such information.
However, you should say nothing and make no deal without the presence of your lawyer. The criminal defense attorneys at Spodek Law Group know people in the prosecutor’s office. They will be much more effective at negotiating a deal on your behalf than you can hope to all on your own. The aim would be to get you a lighter sentence, one which might include no fines or jail time, in exchange for your cooperation.
