Montgomery County Drug Charge Lawyer

Montgomery County Drug Charge Lawyer

With a population of over half a million, Montgomery County is the fifth-most populous county in the state of Ohio. Unfortunately, Montgomery County–with large cities like Dayton–is also an area with a lot of crime, including drug crimes.

Drug charges are taken very seriously in the county, and if you are facing charges for a drug crime, it is important that you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney who can help you to understand your options and build your case. At The VanNoy Firm, our legal team is ready to get to work for you.

A Conviction on a Drug Charge Carries Serious Penalties

A person commits a drug crime when they possess, traffic (distribute), or manufacture controlled substances within the state of Ohio (as well as certain drug paraphernalia). The extent of penalty for a drug conviction is dependent upon:

  • The type of controlled substance involved – the more serious the drug, the more serious the penalty;
  • The amount of drug involved – the more that a person has, distributes, or manufactures, the more serious the offense;
  • The specific type of drug offense committed, such as possession vs. trafficking vs. manufacturing;
  • The background of the person charged and convicted – if this is a secondary or subsequent drug offense, the penalties will be more severe; and
  • Where the crime was committed and who was involved – the penalty may be more serious if the offense occurred near a school, for example, or if drugs were sold to/provided to a minor.

It is critical that you speak to an attorney to learn more about the specific penalties that you may be facing for your drug crime. Potential penalties might include jail or prison time, a large fine, court-ordered rehabilitation, community service, and probation.

How Working with an Attorney Improves Your Odds

Working with an attorney can significantly improve your odds; even if your attorney cannot get charges against you dropped, they may be able to have them reduced, have your sentence lessened, or be able to secure you a conviction of “not guilty.” An attorney is able to improve your chances by analyzing the evidence against you and the way that it was gathered–evidence illegally or unethically obtained may not be permissible to be used against you, helping you to understand the different options available to you, cross-examining witnesses, and negotiating with the prosecution.
