Canton, Ohio, Drug Crime Defense Attorney
With certain exceptions, most drug crimes in Ohio are felonies. This "one-size-fits-all" approach to drug crimes has had a devastating effect on the lives of many people.
I'm Michael Boske, a criminal defense lawyer in Canton, Ohio. I represent clients charged with all types of drug crimes in Northeastern Ohio, including possession, possession with intent to distribute, manufacturing and trafficking in drugs such as powder cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana, illegal prescription drugs, heroin and meth. I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
There are lifelong consequences to having a felony drug conviction on your record. You will face the loss of civil rights such as voting, hunting and owning a gun. Finding a good job will be difficult if not impossible. You will be ineligible for student loans and barred from many careers.
In any drug case, my first goal is to avoid a conviction. As your lawyer, my first approach in your drug case is to conduct a thorough investigation of the search and seizure of drug evidence. If the police violated your constitutional rights, the drug evidence can be suppressed, leading to a dismissal of charges.
If the state has a strong case, my next goal is to minimize consequences. Stark County offers a diversion program for first-time offenders. If I am able to get you into a diversion program, the drug charges will be dismissed once you complete the program. If you have a drug problem, enrolling you in a treatment program can result in a more favorable plea bargain.
