A Strong Defense Against Drug Crimes

Several states have begun relaxing on the possession and use of marijuana, leading to a change of opinion in the eyes of many people across the nation. Despite this, marijuana is still illegal here in Kentucky, even if you purchased it legally elsewhere. This means you can still find yourself in trouble for this or other drugs here, and you need to defend yourself from these charges.

Here at The Law Office of Marvin Knorr & Associates, I have been serving the Covington community for years to protect their rights, futures and freedoms. If you or your child need exceptional representation to defend against drug charges, you cannot afford to wait another day to speak with me. The sooner I can begin defending your case, the better the outcome can be.

Know What You Are up Against

The consequences of drug charges are based on what schedule, or category, they are in. These schedules are created by the federal government, and consist of 5 tiers for drugs:

  • Schedule 1: LSD, ecstasy, mushrooms, heroin and marijuana
  • Schedule 2: meth, oxycodone, Vicodin, Adderall, Ritalin and cocaine
  • Schedule 3: Tylenol with codeine, ketamine, testosterone, anabolic steroids
  • Schedule 4: Xanax, Valium, Ambien, Darvocet, Soma
  • Schedule 5: Robitussin Ac, Lomotil, Motofen, Parapectolin, Lyrica

The higher up the list your drug is, the worse the consequences can be. Most people are surprised to see that marijuana is higher on the list than meth or cocaine, and are even more surprised to learn that the consequences of a conviction are as severe as they are.

I Can Help Protect You

There are many ways you can receive drug charges, such as possession, manufacturing (creating or growing drugs), or distribution (selling drugs or showing the intent to sell, like having a large amount of marijuana), or even driving under the influence of marijuana or other drugs. Law enforcement will commonly try to go for the most severe conviction, and tell you things like getting an attorney only makes you look more guilty.

I am eager to take up your case and fight for you. I am committed to seeing you beat these charges, and I utilize my skills in negotiation and litigation to reduce or drop the charges. If things get tough, I am prepared to take your case to court and fight for you there.
