Did You Know The Legal Boundaries Of The School?
A school zone is considered 1,000 feet around an elementary school, middle school, high school, private school or a vocational school. Distributing drugs within 100 feet of a public park or playground can also lead to hefty penalties. If you were unaware of the boundaries, law enforcement will not consider that as a defense strategy.
The Monmouth County drug distribution lawyers at our firm act quickly to develop an aggressive defense strategy. We will fight for a reduction or dismissal if law enforcement made an invalid traffic stop, conducted an illegal search and seizure or made any procedural errors. Our firm will review the police report and interview any witnesses to uncover any errors or inconsistencies in the criminal allegations.
Seeking To Mitigate Any Potential Damages
If the charges cannot be dropped, we will seek to mitigate the damages through demonstrating any positive steps you have taken in getting treatment for a drug addiction. We have a substantial background negotiating with prosecutors for reduced sentences. Changes in sentencing guidelines now give judges the discretion to determine the punishment level.
