Colorado Springs Drug Offense Attorney Roger J. Lucas Can Advocate for You

In criminal cases involving drug charges such as simple possession, a straightforward distribution, or even more complex distribution cases involving elaborate conspiracy theories and manufacturing schemes, assessing law enforcement’s probable cause to investigate you and your background and activities is extremely important as a lack of PC can often be used to suppress incriminating evidence in the case.  By suppressing the prosecution’s available evidence, effective criminal defense attorneys can leverage plea negotiations by affecting the trial’s potential outcomes even before presenting the case to a jury.

Drug offenses in Colorado are classified as DM misdemeanors and DF felonies.  If you have no prior criminal history and are charged with a lower level Drug Felony, it may be possible to work out a plea disposition to ultimately avoid having a felony conviction, or even a misdemeanor conviction, avoiding the long term adverse consequences of having a criminal record.

Colorado Criminal Lawyer Roger J. Lucas can help you through the entire criminal proceeding. He will explain everything to you in a simple and straightforward manner, including explaining the potential evidence in the case, as well as the likelihood of prevailing at trial.  By assessing your chances of successfully defending against the charges levied in the case, you can better understand whether you want to take a plea deal, or present the case to a jury.  If you need assistance with post-conviction matters, including sentence reconsiderations, or sealing your criminal records, the Law Office of Roger J Lucas, LLC can assist with that as well.
