Drug offenses range from minor offenses to felonies with mandatory prison time. Under Ohio law, even the lowest level drug charges can result in the loss of your driver’s license, inability to secure federal student loans and financial penalties. Felony level drug offenses carry mandatory prison time, huge fines, and a stigma that makes it difficult to get jobs and places to live.

Intervention programs, rehabilitation, and intensive drug court intervention keep people out of prison and on the road to reclaiming their lives. Make sure you have an attorney experienced at navigating the ever-changing dynamics between punishment and rehabilitation.
