Teenagers facing drug charges need to protect their future

Teenagers may not always exercise the best judgment when it comes to drugs. They may be curious about what it's like to be "high," which could lead to experimentation. Other young people are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when a drug offense takes place. Unfortunately, prosecutors in Maryland will not go easy on anyone they suspect committed a drug crime, no matter what that person's age is.

Being convicted of drug charges can have a negative impact on a young adult's life for years to come. Not only will the person face the possibility of fines and jail time, but their reputation may also be on the line. Whether the substance at issue is illicit prescription drugs, heroin, marijuana, or any other type of drug, being accused of drug possession, drug manufacturing, or drug trafficking is a serious situation.

That being said, there are some steps a person accused of drug crimes can do to help themselves. For example, they can consult with an attorney, such as those at the Law Offices of Thomas C. Mooney. An attorney may be able to examine the facts of the case to pinpoint mistakes police made during the arrest and while seizing evidence. Arguments can be made that may affect the outcome of a person's case for the better. Most of all, an attorney can help their clients understand the often-confusing criminal trial process, and can advise them and advocate for them every step along the way.

Parents never want to receive a phone call that their child is in jail, but unfortunately situations like that do occur. It is best to be prepared, and having an attorney of your choosing at your side can make all the difference.
