I'm a criminal defense attorney and I believe I may be able to help you out here. Before proceeding, I need to know....

 

Are you charges in state court or federal court?

 

As best as you can, what are the SPECIFIC charges (please include a statute number if you have it)?

 

Thank you.

felony posession state court
Criminal Lawyer: Joseph, Criminal Defense Lawyer replied 8 years ago

I take it you do not know the specific statute number?

 

Also, do you have any criminal history? If so, what?

 

Thank you.

hes got a dui on his record, vending without a liscence, and i would imagine at least one prior misdemeanor drug charge.
Criminal Lawyer: Joseph, Criminal Defense Lawyer replied 8 years ago

Without the specific statute number under which he is charged, I have to make an assumption that he had a minimal amount of the drug in his possession. Assuming this to be accurate, the offense is a fifth degree felony, the lowest level of felony offense in the State of Ohio.

 

With that in mind, the sentencing guidelines call for a sentence of 6 to 12 months of jail time.
