When people are charged with drug crimes, one of their first concerns is whether they will go to prison or jail. If that is the situation you are in, programs are available that can help you avoid jail time or conviction.
Whether you are facing state or federal drug charges for meth, marijuana/weed, heroin or cocaine possession, the attorneys at Leonard, Hammond, Thoma & Terrill, P.C., can help protect your rights, criminal record and future. We have been serving the legal needs of individuals in Fort Wayne and throughout northeast Indiana since 1952, and our lawyers can provide the aggressive defense you need.
What Is The Drug Court Program?
Fort Wayne has a drug court program that allows low-level dealers and users to avoid convictions. If individuals complete the program (which lasts 12 to 18 months), the criminal charges against them can be dropped. There are qualifications for the drug court program – including age and not having prior convictions for serious violent felony offenses – and an experienced attorney can help you understand your options.
