Drugs offences


Drugs offences

It can be devastating to be accused of a criminal offence at any time, for both the individual and their families, and that’s why it makes sense to engage the best legal professionals from the very start. This is one of those times when you need the services of skilled, experienced specialists who will fight every step of the way on your behalf to achieve the best possible outcome.

The range of offences that come under the Misuse of Drugs Act are many and varied, and can include everything from possession of a small amount of a substance for your own personal use all the way up to trafficking significant quantities of Class A narcotics. As you might imagine, the potential sentences that can be brought can be extremely severe.

In our experience, many of those who are accused are often unaware of the severity of the situation they are facing. Drug charges are serious, and they require robust, tenacious legal representation from your chosen legal team. Here at MML Law, we’ve handled a wide variety of cases from our offices in Dundee, covering the likes of manufacturing, cultivating, possessing or distributing of substances such as cannabis, ecstasy, prescription drugs, amphetamines, cocaine, heroin and anabolic steroids.

Our initial aim will always be to quash any potential conviction, using our years of experience and our in-depth knowledge of the legal arguments relevant to your particular case. If this isn’t possible, we’ll do all we can to reduce charges and minimise the potential penalties that you have to face. If you’ve been charged with any offence under the drugs umbrella, you should make sure you understand the scenarios that could unfold.

The potential penalties will usually depend on the legal classification of the substance you’re alleged to have been involved with, and the actual amount in question. Small amounts generally lead to possession charges, for example. Class A substances, the most serious of all, include cocaine, ecstasy and heroin. Supply and production of Class A drugs can lead to a sentence of life imprisonment.

If you’ve been charged with a drug offence, whether a minor or major charge, there is no time to lose. It’s important for you to have legal representation from the outset, and that’s where the specialists from MML Law come in. Many of these cases are extremely complex, and can include issues such as money laundering, covert surveillance, importation and international fraud. It’s worth noting that individuals can find themselves charged with drug offences even if they were nowhere near the actual narcotics.

To obtain the best defence team, all you have to do is call MML Law as soon as possible. We’re available on 01382 206 000, so get in touch soon and we’ll go through the details of your case.
