Every year, tens of thousands of Americans are arrested and charged with state or federal drug crimes. Facing drug charges can be a frightening experience, and a conviction for a drug offense can be a life-changing nightmare.
While state drug law debates, especially regarding marijuana, continue to rage around most of the country, Indiana’s drug laws continue to be some of the strictest in the country. The penalty ranges for drug crimes in Indiana vary significantly, and if you make the mistake of taking the charges lightly, you may be in for a very unpleasant surprise.
Your freedom and your future are on the line when facing drug crime charges. Lengthy jail or prison sentences that separate you from your family and huge fines that separate you from your money are only the start. A stain on your personal and professional reputation can cost you employment, educational, and financial opportunities for years to come. You could lose your right to carry a firearm, and your immigration status may also be in jeopardy. This is no time to take chances.
Fierce and Experienced Indianapolis Drug Crime Defense
At Rigney Law, our Indianapolis drug crime defense attorneys don’t believe that there is any such thing as a “minor” drug offense. That is because we have seen what happens when someone accused of these offenses doesn’t have an experienced and committed defense lawyer on his or her side.
During the eight years she spent working exclusively as a prosecutor in Marion County Major Felony Drug Court, Rigney Law founding partner A. Kassi Rigney learned how the system can work against defendants and how they can find themselves easily steamrolled if they don’t understand their rights or have someone to protect them.
Having trained both attorneys and police officers in the handling of drug crime investigations, Kassi understands that police can make any number of errors that could be key to a successful defense, and prosecutors may rely on evidence or testimony that an aggressive defense attorney can effectively attack. Kassi will vigorously challenge prosecutors whenever necessary, fighting to obtain the best possible result on your case.
