Wilmington and New Castle County Drug Offense Attorney
The penalties for drug offenses in Delaware are very harsh, often involving mandatory minimum jail sentences, fines, even if you are a first time offender. Also, when the police arrest someone for a drug crime, it is common to pile on charges. Simple possession becomes possession with intent to sell, or possession within 1,000 ft of a school or 300 ft of a park, or maintaining a house or vehicle for keep drugs. The penalties for drug offenses can increase dramatically, based upon the quantity of drugs involved and their intended use.
Serious charges require serious representation. Experience matters when defending against serious drug charges.
I have more than 30 years of experience handling drug charges in every county in Delaware. I aggressively defend any drug law violation, including:
- Possession with intent to deliver/Delivery
- Maintaining a vehicle/house for keeping drugs
- Possession within 1000 ft or school or 300 ft of park
- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Individuals in Delaware with no prior drug arrests or convictions may qualify for the Drug Diversion program, which can avoid a criminal conviction from being placed on your criminal record and ensure no jail time, as long as you comply with the rules of the Drug Diversion treatment program.
In some situations involving more serious charges, a person may avoid a long period of mandatory incarceration by electing the Boot Camp Diversion Program.
In other situations, the State’s case can be attacked by showing that the police did not have probable cause to stop a person, or search his person, car or property.
I will carefully review the options available to you so that you can elect the best resolution of your case.
