Rhode Island Drug Charges Dismissed

Posted by Matthew Marin | Apr 28, 2014 | 0 Comments

We are pleased to announce the dismissal of felony drug charges pending against a Client dating back to 2012.  Our Client was arrested in Newport County in December of 2012 and charged with possession of prescription drugs including (1) Amphetamine, (2) Dextro-Amphetamine, (3) Gabapentin, (4) Clonazepam, (5) Diazapam, (6) Suboxone, and (7)Marijuana.  After successful navigation and representation throughout the Rhode Island Criminal Court Process, late last week all seven charges were dismissed by the Department of Attorney General.  This leaves our Client with the ability to clear their criminal record and move on with their life unhindered by this incident.

Marin, Esquire, Inc. immediately to preserve your rights and begin to defend yourself.  Drug charges pose unique challenges in the Rhode Island Court system.  The stakes can be very high, as almost all drug offenses in Rhode Island are felony charges.  A significant portion of my drug clients are first time offenders with no criminal history whatsoever.

Simple possession of a controlled substance in the State of Rhode Island constitutes a felony criminal charge (except for marijuana).  A felony drug charge carries with it a significant social stigma that can hinder future job opportunities, the ability to attend college and graduate school, create professional licensing issues, and hurt your ability to obtain a loan or buy a home.  All felony charges in the State of Rhode Island carry the potential for more than one year in jail at the ACI.  Whether it is your first offense or you have been in trouble in the past, it is extremely important to take your RI Drug Charge seriously and put forward a serious defense.
