The possession, sale or manufacture of illegal drugs and related crimes can be misdemeanors or felonies depending on the type of drug, one’s criminal history and/or the amounts involved. All drug crimes potentially carry jail or prison time. In addition, a drug conviction can cause loss of employment and the inability to obtain student loans.
Each year John Harralson represents many people charged with drug related offenses. He can look at the evidence and identify any factual defenses or other issues such as an illegal search or arrest.
In certain cases, depending on client eligibility, Mr. Harralson is capable of negotiating “diversion” agreements or other alternative sentencing plans which may allow defendants to avoid convictions.
