Honolulu Drug Charge Defense Attorneys There Are Things You Can do to Protect Yourself
A drug charge can carry severe penalties. If charged, an individual may face large fines, loss of license, and mandatory prison time. Both state and federal drug crimes are taken seriously by the state, and anyone who is charged with a drug crime should seek legal representation immediately. If arrested, politely refuse to answer any questions and ask to speak to an attorney. Remember, anything you say to the police, before or after an arrest, will be used against you should you be charged with a crime. Even if they say they just want to ask a few questions, speak to an attorney first.
