Protect Yourself Against Lasting Consequences
In Oklahoma, as in many states, drug offenses can carry serious penalties. Depending on the type of drug and the severity of the charge, you could be facing thousands of dollars in fines and years in prison. Additionally, the permanent record you will hold after fulfilling your punishment could make it hard for you to find a home or a job.
It is easy to think that cooperating with authorities will make them go easier on you as they seek punishment. This is not the case. The job of law enforcement and prosecutors is to get a conviction, and it may be politically advantageous for them to seek the heaviest penalties possible. You need a defense lawyer who is willing to get aggressive on your behalf.
Skilled Representation, No Matter Your Charges
I have focused my career on criminal defense, starting with the internship I held at the Oklahoma County Public Defender’s Office throughout law school. This means that I am uniquely prepared to give you the representation you require. I know that despite how law enforcement may be acting, you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. At my firm, Josh Lee & Associates, we will work to get you the fair trial and strong defense you deserve.
I have helped clients with a wide array of drug offenses, including:
- Possession of a controlled substance. This can be simple possession for personal use or possession with intent to distribute. It can also include possession of drug paraphernalia.
- Manufacturing. Involvement in any step of the production process for an illegal drug can lead to manufacturing charges.
- Drug trafficking. This includes the sale, transport or import of controlled substances. It is a felony charge if the amount transported is large enough.
- Distributing. The sale of small quantities of controlled substances is classified as “dealing” rather than “trafficking.”
Whether you are facing minor or more serious charges, you deserve an attorney who will work for you.
