Drug Offenses

Despite the utter failure of the United States and Minnesota to stem the flow of drugs into the state and country or the usage here, the war on drugs continues. Just take a look at the number of people sitting in jail cells across the state and country who are there specifically because of drugs. Hence, the war on those charged with the possession, sale, manufacturing and distribution also continues. In fact, the answer in Minnesota seems to be harsher sentences and fewer options. This is true at almost every level of alleged offense.

No matter whether we are talking about misuse of prescription drugs, meth, cocaine, oxycontin, ecstacy, marijuana or more, the answer from the Minnesota Legislature is harsher penalties. So, knowing how to handle your case is critical. Did the police do what they were supposed to do? Did they handle evidence correctly? A search warrant? Interrogations? Did they do their job? If they made a mistake or came to incorrect conclusions, only an experienced criminal defense lawyer will catch it. Also, other considerations you must consider are possible alternatives like drug court, rehabilitation programs and other options. These may make all of the difference before or even after charge.

As a former Minnesota prosecutor who has handled drug cases, Jack understands not only the intricacies of the laws, but also the motivations and the tricks the prosecutors use.  

For this reason, if you or your loved one is charged with:

  • Possession

  • Sale

  • Manufacturing

  • Distribution

You must have an experienced attorney who knows how to deal with the problems that you are facing.

Sometimes a person may feel they have all the facts to win, but you also need the legal expertise and experience of a great attorney like Jack. I highly recommend him to anyone.
