Drug Crimes

Facing a drug charge can lead you to be confused, frightened, and unsure of what to do next. Being subject to an investigation of your person, home, vehicle or other property can be disconcerting, and going through the legal process can make you feel like a hardened criminal, even if you’re not. Although drug crimes are some of the most commonly prosecuted crimes in Nevada, being convicted will still leave you with significant consequences that will affect you for the rest of your life. Contrary to the reputation Sin City has, Las Vegas has some of the harshest drug laws against distribution, possession, and trafficking. Having a drug charge will show on your criminal record as a narcotics offense. If you’re facing drug crime charges, take them seriously and retain a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer with experience in Nevada drug laws.
