Defending Possession And Sale Charges
A drug conviction in New York can carry severe criminal penalties, including jail time, harsh monetary fines and lengthy probation. Even a minor drug charge can impact your ability to find a job, qualify for financial aid or work in your chosen profession.
At The Law Office of James E. Tyner, PLLC, you will work directly with me. I am well-experienced in criminal defense and appreciate the difficult challenges that lie ahead of you. I will be there to provide you with the information and advice you need to make the right decisions for your future.
How Tyner Legal Helps Those Accused Of Drug Possession Or Sales
I am a criminal defense attorney who represents clients throughout Albany and the surrounding areas in New York. I defend clients who face all misdemeanor and felony drug charges, including the possession and sale of:
- Crack cocaine
- MDMA (Ecstasy)
Other prescription narcotics obtained without a prescription from the first moment that I take on your case, I will work to build a strong defense strategy to help you avoid criminal liability. I will scrutinize your case to determine whether the search warrant used to gather evidence was proper and valid. Should I discover that evidence was illegally obtained by law enforcement officials, I may be able to have your case dismissed.
Court-Supervised Drug Treatment Programs In Albany And The Surrounding Areas
The New York court system increasingly recognizes that substance abuse is a disease. To that end the courts in New York are utilizing comprehensive court-supervised drug treatment programs for certain non-violent addicted offenders.
Individuals who successfully complete these programs may have their charges reduced or dismissed and may be eligible to receive a reduction in their criminal sentence. I am very familiar with these programs and can advise you as to whether a court-supervised treatment program may be appropriate in your case.
