When it comes to drug crimes, the state and federal government do not often go lightly on those convicted on a drug charge. This is especially true if the accused committed a serious drug crime or has a criminal history. Therefore, residents in Washington facing allegations of drug crimes should be aware of the severe penalties they could face. Even more so, defendants should take the time to understand what criminal defense options are available.
Whether it is a drug possession, distribution, manufacturing or any other drug charge, it can be difficult to navigate the defense route on your own.
