There is a common misconception that anyone arrested for committing a crime must have done it. After all, law enforcement agencies only arrest someone after they have gathered enough evidence. But, this is not always the case. As mentioned previously, not all evidence is credible and admissible. Additionally, arguments can be countered and stories discredited with the help of an experienced defense attorney.
Putting one’s case forward from the onset is essential though. Accusations and allegations of drug crimes have the potential to ruin someone’s life and reputation in an instant. Since Ohio is home to one of the cities that falls in the 100 most dangerous cities in the country, criminal charges carry serious penalties. Therefore, imprisonment, fines, penalties, license revocation and probation can follow a conviction. All of this can impact one’s ability to earn a living.
