Strong Defense Against Drug Crime Charges
Law enforcement officers aggressively pursue drug crime arrests, and prosecutors push for the harshest possible penalties. If you have been accused of committing a drug crime, it is important to consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
I am Frederick Johnson, a defense lawyer in Newport, Kentucky, I have worked tirelessly to help my clients achieve their legal goals for more than 20 years. I am here to provide you with the skilled defense representation you need to put this matter behind you and move on with your life.
A Proactive Approach That Gets Results
My approach to drug crime defense is aggressive and proactive. The sooner I can begin building a defense on your behalf, the better the chances of obtaining a successful outcome. I can defend you against any felony or misdemeanor drug crime in Kentucky or Ohio, including:
- Drug possession (including possession of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and other controlled substances)
- Drug distribution or sale
- Drug manufacturing or cultivation
- Prescription drug crimes
- Possession of drug paraphernalia and precursors
I will tailor a legal strategy to your unique circumstances. In some cases, it may be appropriate to seek a full dismissal of charges. If the evidence is stronger, I may pursue reduced charges or alternative sentencing. I will work with you closely to determine which course of action is best for your future and then tenaciously pursue the best outcome. I know how to effectively negotiate with prosecutors, but I am also always prepared to go to trial when it is in a client’s best interests.
