Anchorage Alaska Drug Defense Attorney
Our office has represented people accused of a wide variety of drug crimes, from possession to drug conspiracy. In drug cases, it is not uncommon for law enforcement to overcharge people. Possessing certain amounts of a narcotic can result in drug dealing charges, even if the drugs are for personal use. The charges you face will depend on the type and amount of drugs in your possession as well as whether you have prior drug convictions. Drug charges are sometimes associated with theft charges, as well. It is best to work with an experienced drug defense lawyer rather than face the prosecution on your own. Our office has experience defending drug cases in both State and Federal court.
Fighting State or Federal Drug Charges in Alaska
At the Law Office of Ben Crittenden, we will thoroughly investigate your case. We will determine whether your constitutional rights were violated by examining the police procedure and the evidence. For instance, if you were in custody and the police did not read you your Miranda rights, we can argue that any statements you made should be suppressed. We can also argue that evidence should be suppressed if the police did not have probable cause to stop your vehicle. We have represented people involving all kinds of drug charges, including marijuana, prescription drugs (such as pain killers or xanax), heroin, meth, and cocaine. If you have been charged with a drug crime, it is best to contact an experienced drug defense attorney. Drug convictions can result in prison sentences, fines, and can affect job applications. You need a criminal defense attorney who will continue to provide legal aid and fight for your rights consistent with the values of our criminal justice system.
