Hinton & Bailey LLP
The prison population in parts of the United States has grown so much that prison overcrowding has become a major issue. The reason for this is that police and prosecutors are targeting people for prosecution of possession and sale of drugs in record numbers and judges are routinely handing down prison sentences to these offenders.
Severe Penalties for Drug Possession, Sale and Trafficking
Conviction of drug possession, sale or trafficking can ruin your life. Sale and trafficking charges are usually felonies that can result in incarceration in prison or an extended term of probation supervision. Even a misdemeanor drug possession charge can involve a sentence of monetary fines, incarceration in jail or prison, probation or a combination.
