Zealous Defense in Your Louisville Drug Crime Matter
While many states are working towards decriminalizing and even legalizing some types of recreational drugs, Kentucky continues to enforce some of the toughest drug laws in the nation. For example, whereas possession of the smallest amount of marijuana may get you a civil citation in many states and is legal in others, Kentucky courts can you send you to jail for up to 45 days on a first offense, and up to a year if they charge you with the sale or trafficking of marijuana.
Given the huge stakes of facing jail time, high penalties, and a criminal record that can hurt your present and future career (many employers will not hire a person with a drug crime on their record), it is critical that you do everything you can to avoid guilt on your drug charge and/or to reduce the penalties and damage. Louisville criminal defense attorney Ron Aslam is a former commonwealth prosecutor who will defend your constitutional rights and fight the drug charges against you to protect your interests and defend your freedom. He is committed to defending the rights of individuals in and around Louisville facing drug charges, and will bring his nine years of experience as a state prosecutor and criminal defense attorney to bear in fighting for a positive outcome to your drug crime matter.
Providing Experienced Criminal Defense in All Types of Drug Cases
Criminal defense attorney Ron Aslam has worked for over nine years in the Kentucky criminal justice system, including two years as a public defender, three years as a state prosecutor in Louisville, and has represented criminal defendants in his private practice since 2011. In that time, he has gained the experience and skills to zealously represent clients in possession, sale, and trafficking cases involving:
- Ecstasy (aka “Molly”)
- LSD and other hallucinogens
- Prescription drugs, including OxyContin
Don’t Talk to Police Without Speaking to a Criminal Defense Attorney
As stated above, Kentucky continues to impose severe penalties on those found guilty of drug crimes – whether in the form of prison time, high fines, forced rehabilitation, and so on – and this doesn’t even include the years and even decades of damage that a criminal record for drug charges can do to your personal and professional life. Police and prosecutors may try to get you to think that giving up evidence and telling them what they want to hear will make things easier on you, and that you will be penalized for consulting with a lawyer, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Criminal defense attorney Ron Aslam will passionately protect your constitutional rights and provide you with the best defense possible to the drug charges leveled against you. He will not allow police and prosecutors to intimidate you into waiving your rights, and he will challenge the legality and sufficiency of any “evidence” leveled against you. In many drug cases, prosecutors bring cases against individuals only tangentially connected to the drugs at issue, but Ron will not let you take the fall for another’s drug-related misdeeds without a fight. He has years of experience of winning positive outcomes for his clients in drug crime matters – including acquittals, closed investigations, and favorable plea bargains and reduced sentences – and will bring that experience to bear in fighting for your freedom and reputation.
