Know Your Rights When Charged With a Drug Crime
The Law Firm of Frank Stanley, PC, in Grand Rapids has more than 30 years of criminal defense experience. That experience is used to benefit clients accused of drug crimes of all types. Clients in Michigan and nationwide turn to the firm for successful representation in felony drug crime cases.
In one of many successes in drug crime cases, the firm represented one of nine defendants accused of running an interstate drug ring. The client was named the leader of the drug ring. Seven of the nine pled guilty and testified against the firm’s client. The firm took the matter to trial and fought. The outcome: not guilty. The client went home. Interestingly, the accused who testified against the firm’s client went to prison. Learn more about this and other successes.
Defense Against All Drug Offenses
The penalties facing people charged with federal drug crimes are mind-boggling. For example, time and time again the firm has seen young people without any criminal record facing a minimum of 10 years in federal prison if convicted. This is a minimum sentence and the reality is that they are facing much harsher sentences, in the range of 30 years to life, in some cases. Also, unlike those in state prisons, persons serving time in federal prison must serve at least 85 percent of their sentences.
