Don’t Let Drug Charges Destroy Your Life

You never intended to get caught up in the criminal justice system. But you are now facing drug charges, and you do not know where to turn. The state of Pennsylvania takes drug charges very seriously. You cannot leave your case to chance and simply hope for the best. You need to take action, and you need attorneys who know how to get you out of this serious situation.

Our law firm can help you. We are Nevins & McAllister, PLLC, a Reading-based criminal defense firm with experience representing thousands of clients through their criminal cases. We can help you if you have been charged with a crime involving marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines, fentanyl, oxycodone or other controlled substances.

Charged With Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia?

Many people do not realize that, in Pennsylvania, it is illegal to possess drug-related paraphernalia. The state defines paraphernalia as any item used to store, manufacture, ingest or inhale a controlled substance.

While this charge may not seem severe, possession of drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor that can result in a fine of $2,500 and up to one year in jail. We can work to get your charges dropped or reduce your criminal penalties. We also utilize court programs that allow you to maintain a clean record, such as the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program (ARD).

Possession with Intent to Deliver (PWID)

Pennsylvania law is strict when it comes to felony drug crimes. This includes penalties for possession with the intent to deliver drugs, even if no drug sale even occurs. Police, upon application and with probable cause, may obtain a warrant to search a person’s home or property and use what they uncover to charge a person with serious offenses. Other times, Police may use an undercover officer or informants to develop a case or charge an individual with actually delivering or selling the controlled substance.  

Protection From Prescription Drug Charges

Drug charges do not just involve street drugs — they can also involve prescription medications. We can help you if your charges pertain to prescription medicines. Our firm has also represented health care practitioners and other professionals licensed by the state of Pennsylvania, with the goal of preventing them from losing their career.
