By Keffer Hirschauer LLP

The amount of jail time an individual could receive for felony drug charge depends on the nature of the charge. Whether they were charged with the possession or a dealing, whether they were charged with a low-level felony or a high-level felony. Often time charges will vary based on the amount of controlled substance alleged involved.

When it comes to determining whether or not an individual’s facing serious jail time, an individual needs to talk to an attorney about the nature of the charges they’re facing, and to make that they understand the risks and penalties associated with that specific charge, for that specific occurrence, for that specific substance. This is not as cut and dry as a lot of people think, which is why individuals need to contact experienced attorneys, like the attorneys at the law firm of Keffer Hirschauer.
