Olathe Misdemeanor Drug Crime Lawyer

Misdemeanor Drug Charges in Olathe, Kansas

The penalties and prosecution of drug crimes in Kansas are taken extremely seriously; if you have recently been charged with something of this nature, it is not something for you to shrug off, take lightly or ignore in the hopes that it will simply go away with time. It has become common practice for Johnson County police to pull over a vehicle in a routine traffic stop and then search that car based solely on an odor that causes them to be suspicious of possible drug possession. I, John E. Harvell, strongly believe that odor is not sustainable reason for search - if you have been subjected to an illegal search that led to a drug charge, you should not hesitate to contact an Olathe criminal lawyer such as myself as quickly as possible.

Talented Drug Crime Lawyer for Misdemeanor Charges

Misdemeanor drug charges can be for anything from possession of marijuana to possession of paraphernalia. If you have been charged with a drug crime like this, it is absolutely vital that you receive the comprehensive legal guidance that you require to successfully combat your charges. Successful convictions can lead to severe penalties such as extended stays in prison or jail, and steep monetary fines - you do not deserve to be subjected to such punishments without the proper level of assistance.

I have seen cases such as yours move through the courtroom and understand the amount of work and creative defensive tactics that it will take to get you your optimum outcome. If your drug crime stemmed from an illegal car stop and search, then I will look into filing for a motion to suppress to ensure that evidence secured from faulty police work is not used against you. You can breathe easier if you choose to work with me knowing that I will leave no stone unturned in my efforts to protect your rights.
