Since the 1980’s the war on drugs has prioritized the prosecution of drug users and dealers. While recent years has seen the State of Maryland dramatically shift their focus from incarceration to rehabilitation when it comes to drug users, the process remains very complicated.
BSS Law prides itself on not only providing excellent criminal defense representation in the courtroom, but by also ensuring that all clients get the necessary drug treatment that they may need. For many individuals, drug use and abuse is a familiar problem that they’ve had for many years. While beating the charge is important, setting a client up for success in the future so that they never need to hire an attorney again is always the main objective.
Often times, the line between user and dealer can be difficult to draw. Far too frequently, the State’s Attorneys prosecute an individual as a distributor without proper evidence to support that charge. Since the charge of distribution is a serious felony, hiring an attorney who is experienced in drug cases is critical. Distribution cases often hinge upon eye witness testimony, informant testimony, and expert witness testimony. It takes a seasoned attorney who knows the drug game to effectively cross examine and discredit these types of witnesses.
