Criminal Defense In Harrison And Jackson County Biloxi Drug Possession Charge Attorney
Stephen Maggio has practiced law in Mississippi for 22 years, including many years as a former municipal judge and public defender. He is well-equipped to handle all drug offenses, including:
- Marijuana or drug paraphernalia
- Possession of cocaine, meth or other street drugs
- Unlawful possession of prescription painkillers
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Transporting drugs (on I-10, for instance)
Drug convictions carry the real possibility of jail or prison plus fines, probation, community service, drug abuse assessment and other penalties. Drug crimes also trigger driver’s license suspension.
Many times people accused of drug offenses believe they have no choice but to plead guilty and accept the punishment. There are options such as drug court and deferral programs for first-time offenders to avoid a conviction and get help with addiction issues.
In other cases, we have successfully challenged the traffic stop, search and seizure, and other facets of drug investigations and arrests. By poking holes in the prosecution’s case or identifying violations, we can sometimes dismiss or reduce the charges, or create reasonable doubt at trial.
