Will I face misdemeanor or felony charges?

A drug crime may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the particular penalties that would be imposed upon a conviction. A misdemeanor is a lesser offense than a felony. The severity of drug charges you face will vary depending on what type of offense you have been accused of committing, your past criminal history (if any), the type of drug involved, and the amount of drugs.

What types of penalties may I face for a drug crime conviction in Columbus?

What is an unreasonable search and seizure?

An unreasonable search and seizure occurs when law enforcement conducts a search or confiscates evidence without probable cause or a valid warrant to do so. Evidence obtained in unreasonable search and seizures may not be used as direct evidence against a defendant facing drug charges.

Should I contact an attorney if I'm under investigation but formal charges have not been filed against me?

Even if you have not been arrested or if formal charges have not been filed, it is highly recommended that you talk to a Columbus drug crime attorney about your situation.
