Louisville Drug Crimes Lawyer
Hire an attorney who understands the law and all its consequences
If you or a loved one has been charged with a drug-related crime, you may have already learned one very important fact: Kentucky does not take these crimes lightly. In fact, drug crimes — even seemingly minor offenses like possession of marijuana — carry strict penalties that may involve large fines or even jail time. You need an experienced Louisville criminal defense attorney from the Campisano Law Office fighting for you.
Knowledge. Experience. Integrity.
Our firm principal, attorney Frank Campisano, has dedicated his career to protecting the rights of the accused. We provide honest, practical legal counsel and do not judge you based on your situation.
Our Louisville criminal defense attorney represents clients in matters involving:
We work hard to clear your name or have the charges against you reduced or dismissed. If that is not possible, we use our considerable knowledge of the local, state and federal court systems to protect your best interests.
Reduced sentences remain sentences nevertheless
The good news is that Kentucky recently realized that at least 75 percent of the people in our prisons were there because of drug or drug-related crimes. Kentucky is one of a number of states that are directing money away from prison construction and toward abuse treatment programs for low-level, nonviolent drug offenders, prison being reserved for the most serious offenders.
For instance, in 2011, possession of marijuana was reduced from a Class A misdemeanor with a possible penalty of 12 months in jail to a Class B misdemeanor and a maximum penalty of 45 days in jail.
The bad news is that incarceration remains a possibility if you have been charged with a drug crime, as is the likelihood you will lose your job and find reemployment difficult. An experienced law firm like the Campisano Law Office makes sure your rights are acknowledged and can mitigate your charges or sentence if you are found guilty.
