Juvenile Charged With Drug Possession in Michigan
Possessing any amount of an illegal narcotic can lead to serious criminal penalties, and depending on the amount and type of drug, jail time, fines, and a criminal record are all possible. For juvenile offenders, it may be possible to seek counseling, rehabilitation, probation, or other alternative sentencing, and even avoid a permanent record; however it is wrong to assume that just because it is a minor who has been charged that severe criminal penalties don’t apply. If the amount of drugs is more than the average offense, the type of narcotic in a more serious schedule, or if the offender is nearing the age of 17, he or she could face additional penalties and prosecutors may even seek sentencing as an adult.
Work with a Michigan juvenile drug crime defense lawyer to protect against life-changing punishment. While probation, community service, fines, and other penalties may not seem serious, a criminal record could prevent a juvenile offender from getting a job, obtaining a loan, receiving scholarships, and more. Criminal records can last years, and won’t necessarily be cleared once the offender turns 17, especially if he or she is placed on the formal calendar or moved to adult trial court. Contact Grabel & Associates now to fight back against police and prosecutors who will attempt to secure a conviction and damaging sentence.
Child Charged With Dealing Drugs in Michigan
While possession can result in serious punishment, it is much more likely that a juvenile will be sentenced on the formal calendar or as an adult in cases involving drug delivery, dealing, cultivation, or manufacture. If your child has been accused of selling drugs in Michigan, especially selling to minors, it is critical to begin working with a defense lawyer as soon as possible. Cases involving manufacturing drugs are even more serious, and should be handled by an experienced drug crime defense attorney.
