If you are convicted of a criminal offense relating to illegal drugs, such as marijuana, illegal mushrooms, cocaine or heroin, you face the possibility of going to jail, paying a high fine or other lesser-known but equally severe consequences.
Delivery of a drug does not mean that the person handing over the drug is selling it for profit — it is simply the transfer of the drug from one person to another. This scenario is very common among college students who share marijuana among friends.
Every case is different. If you are facing a drug charge, you need to speak with an experienced attorney right away. This is not something you can handle on your own. Attorney Lisko crafts proven defense strategies on behalf of clients throughout Centre County, often defending students from Penn State University, located just across the street from his office.
You have constitutional rights against unlawful search and seizure, false arrest and other police errors that could clear you of charges. The law office of Lisko & Associates knows how to locate these discrepancies in the state’s case and maximize them to your fullest advantage.
Cooperation Versus Confrontation
Sometimes the better way to handle a criminal case is through cooperation rather than confrontation with the police. Let’s face it, many times the person arrested by the police on drug charges did in fact do something that may have been criminal.
Over the years Mr. Lisko, himself a former police officer and prosecutor, has been able to successfully resolve criminal cases without going to trial or stirring up unnecessary publicity. The last thing most people charged with a drug crime want is to have their face all over the media bringing attention to their problem.
Having an experienced attorney defend your rights against criminal charges could make a world of difference in your defense, possibly even resulting in your charges being reduced or dropped altogether.
