How Drug Charges Can Impact You

When facing drug charges, you want a lawyer who is willing to go the extra mile for you. Drug convictions can greatly alter people's lives by making them pay large fines, sending them to jail and putting a criminal mark on their records that remains even after their sentences are up.

"Drug crime" encompasses any activities that include illegal substances, including:

  • Use of illegal substances
  • Selling drugs
  • Trafficking drugs
  • Giving out prescription drugs

Jaclyn Shaw wants everyone to understand the gravity of these situations. Even personal possession with no intent to sell is a serious offense that could impact you for longer than you realize.

Pennsylvania's Marijuana Laws

Despite other states legalizing marijuana, Pennsylvania has yet to do so. Cases of possessing, growing or distributing marijuana are a violation of both state and federal law. Jaclyn can quickly begin formulating a plan to defend you if you are accused of a marijuana-related crime.
