First Time Drug Charges

First-Time Drug Charges in Florida

Avoiding a Mark on Your Criminal Record

If you are in the face of your first criminal arrest, or even just your first drug charge, you need to know your rights and how these charges can have a long-lasting effect on your future. Criminal charges, no matter what type, can haunt a person for decades. Without the ability to cleanse or expunge their criminal record, this person will be forced to report to every potential employer and at every request for a criminal background that he or she has been convicted of a crime. Drug crimes, however, can sometimes be much worse than other types of offenses in the sense that they trigger the belief that the alleged criminal may have dependency issues on the narcotic or may fall into a habit of substance abuse. If you do not want this negative stigma to follow you around everywhere you go, then you need to speak with an attorney right away.

When you first contact the law firm of Parks & Braxton, PA, you know that you have come to the right law firm for your drug crime charges. We take these types of offenses very seriously, as we know the lifelong effect it will have on a person who fails to obtain sound legal representation. Many people assume that a judge will be lenient on a first-time offender or a prosecution will drop the case with a warning; this is a sorely mistaken idea. The prosecution will instead prosecute the case with enhanced penalties to "teach a lesson" or possibly to ensure that this type of behavior is not engaged in again. No matter what type of drug charge you are facing, you will need a defense attorney to protect your rights.
