You Aren’t Your Criminal Charge – We’re Here to Help
At Friedman & Bresaw, we believe a single moment shouldn’t define the rest of a client’s life – especially when that moment involves possession of a controlled substance in Meredith. The state of New Hampshire, however, takes drug possession very seriously – so seriously, in fact, that the likelihood of being charged with a felony is more likely than not.
If you’re arrested for a drug crime in Belknap County, Carroll County, the Lakes Region, or anywhere in the state, having competent legal counsel that cares about countering your charges should be your highest priority. Working with the Meredith criminal defense attorneys at Friedman & Bresaw means building a legal defense with lawyers who won’t judge you for your drug charges regardless of your guilt. Instead, we will work to help you overcome what might be the biggest legal obstacle of your life. We also have the experience with multiple alternative sentencing programs available in Meredith, Belknap, and Carroll Counties that we can leverage to get you the best possible outcome.We’ll stand beside you every step of the way to help you make decisions that can lead you toward a brighter future.
Marijuana Laws Have Eased but Are Still in Effect
- Less than 3/4 of an ounce: The penalty for the first or even second time you’re charged with this is treated like a minor traffic violation. You won’t face jail or prison time or incur a criminal record, but the maximum fine you will face is $100.
- More than 3/4 of an ounce: As a misdemeanor, you could face a year in jail and up to a $2,000 fine for this conviction.
New Hampshire’s marijuana laws are changing, but a simple misunderstanding can land you in serious legal trouble. Call (603) 707-4800 today if you believe you’ve been wrongly charged with a marijuana-related crime.
