Drug Crimes

Ocean City Criminal Defense Lawyers –

Some of the most common charges and convictions in the United States criminal justice system are drug crimes. Law enforcement is notorious for looking for minor, nonviolent drug crimes and making an arrest, knowing it can be simple for the prosecution to land a conviction. Judges throughout the country are also infamous for using overly-harsh sentencing in drug crime cases.

Shield yourself with the legal prowess of our Ocean City drug crimes attorneys at The Law Office of Thomas Maronick Jr LLC.

Drug Crime Charges & Possible Defenses

Any interaction with an illegally obtained substance can be considered a drug crime. Some of the most common drug crimes in Maryland are drug possession, drug distribution, drug possession with intent to distribute, illegal cultivation, and prescription drug abuse. The more of a substance in question, or the more dangerous a substance in question, the greater the severity of your drug charge, possibly up to a high-level felony.

Example of illegal substances that can lead to a drug charge include:

  • Non-prescribed marijuana
  • Prescription drugs used out of context of a prescription
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Heroin
  • Ecstasy

No matter what your drug charge or the details of your arrest, you can depend on our Ocean City criminal defense attorneys to know what to do to defend your rights. In many situations, evidence in drug crime cases was seized under questionable circumstances, like after a traffic stop in which there was no reason for the police to search the entire vehicle. We may be able to have the prosecution’s evidence rendered inadmissible, potentially causing your case to be dismissed outright.

This is only one example of what can be done to build your defense and protect your good name. Every case we take is given personalized attention — we refuse to use premanufactured strategies that hurt your chances of success.
