The Consequences For A Drug Conviction Have Serious Repercussions
In addition to the possibility of serving longer jail or prison sentences and paying higher fines there are repercussions to a drug conviction. Drug offenses involving possession, distribution or use of an illicit drug can affect:
- Federal student aid eligibility
- Employment opportunities
- Harsher sentencing in the future
A drug-related conviction can:
- Cause you to be terminated from a job
- Prevent you from getting hired elsewhere
- Stop or prevent federal assistance
- Block your ability to obtain certain certifications and licenses
Illicit drugs include prescription medicine, marijuana and heroin.
Another Type Of Drug Charge
Alcohol is legal in most areas throughout Alaska, however importing or being in possession of alcohol in a dry county can result in serious consequences. The charge can range from a misdemeanor to a felony depending on various factors. A common factor is suspicion of operating a vehicle under the influence.
We will investigate the details of your stop using our knowledge of proper police procedures. Our lead attorney received the same training in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) sobriety tests that the police officers receive.
