Controlled Substances Violations have High Stakes for Nevada Offenders
A defendant faces probation, community service, and mandatory drug and alcohol counseling, in addition to significant fines and penalties for even a first offense. Committing an offense near a school or any other area where children regularly gather will increase the penalties as well.
Controlled substances charges can often be plea bargained to a lesser offense, or dropped altogether if the evidence is tainted. Rather than represent themselves, individuals should seek experienced counsel to help them assert their rights.
