If your son has been arrested for selling morphine to an undercover officer in Mesa, you should be aware that he is facing very serious charges. A conviction for narcotic sales is likely to mean a felony on his record, prison or jail time, large fines, drug counseling, and a potential 7 years of probation.
It’s hard to know what to do when a family member is arrested. One of the best steps you can take is to talk with a Mesa drug lawyer who is experienced with defending against narcotic sales charges. Every illegal drug case is different, and a lot will depend on the circumstances surrounding your son’s case, including his past criminal history, any charges in addition to the sales charge, if there were weapons involved, etc. An experienced attorney can talk you through each step of the process, review the evidence in the case, and work to build strong defense for your son.
Working with an attorney gives your son a chance for a better outcome, and it may be possible to have the penalties reduced or the charges dismissed. Don’t wait until it’s too late to get help. A Phoenix drug lawyer with Curry, Pearson & Wooten would be happy to speak with you in a completely free and confidential legal consultation to answer any questions.
