Defending Your Rights And Freedom In Drug Crime Cases
If you have been charged with a drug crime, your freedom and your future are at stake. You need strong and effective legal representation to ensure that your rights are protected.
At Robert R. Hart, Jr., Attorney at Law, we have over 30 years’ experience defending people accused of drug crimes and other criminal offenses throughout southern Ohio. We firmly believe that everyone accused of a crime deserves the strongest defense possible.
A Defense Based On The Facts And The Law
In preparing your defense, we at Robert R. Hart, Jr., Attorney at Law will review every aspect of your case. This includes an examination of the basic facts of the case such as the actual quantity of the substances in question, who actually possessed them and other facts. We will also look at the legality of the state’s actions, such as search and seizure issues, the use of informants, controlled buys and other constitutional concerns.
Whenever possible, we will also make aggressive use of motions to exclude evidence and obtain a dismissal of the charge. We will work to build a strong and effective defense in cases involving:
- Possession of marijuana and other controlled substances
- Possession with intent to deliver
- Prescription drug charges
- Narcotics trafficking
- Conspiracy to traffic
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Drug abuse
- Other drug crimes
“It is very important to obtain representation by an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. In a number of cases, I have successfully persuaded prosecutors and police officers and investigators not to file a charge or to file a lesser charge instead. Just letting the state know you have legal counsel is always a good move.” — Robert R. Hart Jr.
Alternatives To Conviction And Jail
First-time offenders and others may be eligible for nonconviction outcomes. Drug court and probation alternatives can provide a person with a second chance and an opportunity to obtain chemical dependency treatment. At Robert R. Hart, Jr., Attorney at Law, we have good working relationships with prosecutors and have helped many clients obtain this type of outcome. If you qualify and are interested in such a program, we can seek to obtain it for you.
