The unfortunate nature of drug crimes

Across the Twin Cities, the state of Minnesota, and indeed the entire country, there are extensive and punishing laws on the books that go after people who are accused of drug crimes. These laws have immense penalties that often change the course of a person's life, leaving them in a very difficult and precarious positions should they be found guilty and ever get out of prison.

This is all a product of the so called "War on Drugs," a decades-long effort to levy massive penalties against people who possess, distribute or use drugs, with the hope being that such immense penalties would convince people to stay away from these substances. It hasn't worked, and all we have to show for it is an overcrowded prison population and many lives ruined as a result.

Drug crimes are some of the most aggressively prosecuted cases we have in this world. Prosecutors go to great lengths to get the most jail time possible out of any case. The laws pertaining to drug crimes also give a lot of leeway to lock up the accused for many years. The person that comes out of jail isn't the same one that went in. And that can make it difficult to assimilate back into society.

Defending your case vigorously from the beginning is imperative with any drug charge. At Mankey Law Office, we will advocate on your behalf and stand up for your rights. We are committed to you and your future, so let us help you in your time of need.
