Do the charges fit the crime?
There Are Times When Prosecutors Overcharge Drug Possession Cases
When you are convicted of drug possession, even when it is in small amounts, it could change your life drastically. Oftentimes, the charges do not fit the crime, and when it happens, you’d be facing drug felony charges that require you to pay fines ranging from $25,000 or more, jail time, and/or probation.
Therefore, you need an experienced defense lawyer on your side when facing these drug possession charges. When enlisting the help of Myles S. Breiner’s law office, we are knowledgeable in handling cases related to drug possession, this includes knowing how cases should be charged and challenging prosecution for any wrong convictions.
We Examine Everything
Having every element of the case examined, from evidence to witness accounts, Mr. Breiner makes sure your rights are protected. He will work tirelessly to achieve positive results in your case, which includes an acquittal, dismissal of all or some charges, or a plea agreement that is reached with the prosecutor.
The state of Hawaii charges crimes based on the amount of the drug and its category, whether they are “dangerous”, “detrimental”, or “harmful.”
