Montgomery County Possession of Steroids Lawyers

Improving performance as an athlete or bodybuilder is a primary goal, but not everyone who works hard to do this is doing it with honesty. Some people take the easy way out by using steroids to help with their performance despite the fact that steroid use is strictly against the law. Steroids are illegal to the point that some people obtain them from actual drug dealers. This should be enough to tell you that the use of steroids is more than simply frowned upon. However, there are those who will continue to use steroids for personal gain, and possession of steroids is a crime.

If you are arrested and charged with possession of steroids, you must consult with an attorney who can help you with your case. While it might not seem as if this is the most serious crime to charge someone with, you could face jail time, fines, and even a criminal record if you are found guilty and convicted. Steroids might not be the same killer that more hardcore drugs are, but they are illegal. Call an attorney now.

Possession is Serious

If you are arrested and charged with steroid use, your charges could be ramped up to possession with the intent to sell. The simple fact is that one-time use is all it takes to garner an arrest for use of steroids and possession, and you face serious penalties. Many people purchase steroids based on their personal cycle. What this means for you is that you’re buying them for personal use, but your cycle requires a certain quantity of steroids to work effectively. This quantity is just enough for you, and there is not enough to sell or share. However, the quantity is large enough that your possession charge could be upgraded to possession with the intent to sell because of the quantity.

Penalties for Possession

Your best hope, if you are arrested and charged with possession, is that you are a first-time offender with no history of criminal activity. If you are arrested for the first time, you may find that the court might be more lenient with you. If you are a repeat offender, you might find that the court is not as lenient. You will not be given the lighter sentence the second time around.

You could face up to one year in jail and a fine of as much as $1,000 as a first-time offender. If you are a first-time offender who is arrested and charged with intent to sell your steroids to others, you could face as many as five years in jail as well as $15,000 in fines to pay.

What to Do If You’re Arrested

The first thing you must do when you are arrested and charged with possession of steroids is to call a reputable drug attorney. Do not speak to the arresting officer once you’ve been read your rights. You are not required to speak to anyone, but you must also be polite and respectful. Do not say anything, but do not act aggressively or be rude in any way. Once you’re able to call your attorney, make the call. Your attorney will speak to you and for you, and that’s the best hope you have of being able to have your charges either dropped or reduced.

Your attorney is familiar with the law, and they can help you with your charges by ensuring all of the proper procedures were followed during your arrest and search. If you were driving in a car with someone else, they can argue you didn’t know the drugs were in the car. There are many defenses you can use, but you must call an attorney to help you with your case before it goes to court. You have a chance to win this case and keep your criminal record clean, but only if you call your attorney right away.

"I found Michael Kotik via the internet with the hope by someone to help my son in what we thought was something routine. Long story short after being mislead by the prior firm and received no results and my son sat for 18 months in prison because "no one knew what was going on" Michael was able to not only..."
