North Carolina Drug Crime Defense

Donahue Defense has represented citizens and visitors of northeast NC in numerous areas of drug-related crimes, including, but not limited to the following.

Drug Possession

Depending on the schedule and weight of drugs you were charged with possessing, you may be facing a number of consequences, ranging from simple deferral programs, which may earn you a dismissal, to supervised probation or substantial jail time. While many other states are slowly decriminalizing the possession of certain drugs, North Carolina is not moving in that direction and punishments can be surprisingly harsh.

Drug Possession with Intent to Sell and Deliver (PWISD)

In North Carolina, drug Possession with Intent to Sell and Deliver (PWISD) is a felony. Though often recognized as a charge associated with the amount of drugs on you, you can be charged with PWISD even if you had a small amount drugs on you. Perhaps you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Donahue Defense is there to defend you when it feels like nobody is your side.

Drug Trafficking

If you have been accused of drug trafficking, it is imperative to hire a lawyer immediately. Drug Trafficking in North Carolina is punishable by significant mandatory minimum prison time, but with the right lawyer on your side, it may be possible to reduce your exposure. Donahue Defense will work to help you make deals with the justice system that may minimize your punishment.

Drug Conspiracy

Whether you stood guard while drug activities occurred, or were in the wrong place at the wrong time, you can be charged with drug conspiracy. In this case, it’s crucial to have a lawyer who understands the justice system on your side.
