Drug charges — possession, use, sales or cultivation of narcotics — may result in jail or prison sentences. There are mandatory sentences for some Michigan narcotics offenses, and use of drugs is one of the most common violations of probation. Unfortunately, our criminal justice system often focuses on punishment rather than treatment, so if you are charged with a narcotics offense, you may face swift and overzealous prosecution.
Drug enforcement officers may raid your home or office. These same officers may seek to forfeit your property, money, computer, car, or even your house. You may even face driver’s license sanctions for allegedly possessing narcotics, even if you were not driving!
