Drug crimes are taken seriously in our justice system. The changing culture of American society can leave the mistaken belief that the possession and consumption of drugs is but a minor annoyance. However, this view underestimates the consequences of being convicted of such a crime. A conviction for a drug-related offense may result in a permanent criminal record, make it difficult to obtain housing, and thwart employment opportunities. Furthermore, these convictions can come with lengthy prison sentences and can also cause one to lose out on valuable time with their family. If you are charged with a drug-related crime then it is crucial that you retain counsel immediately. An experienced criminal defense attorney will ensure that your rights remain protected. Omar Abdelghany is a Panama City lawyer assisting Florida residents that are dealing with these matters. Contact our office today to schedule an initial consultation.
