Are You Facing Serious Drug Charges?
If you’re convicted on drug-dealing charges, you could face a number of years in prison, hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and a criminal record. If you’re arrested for selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a school, your prison sentence will increase. Even if drugs were found on you, proving whether you intended to sell them is another issue.
The criminal defense lawyer at the Stone Law Office understands the tactics used by police and investigators when building cases against people charged with possession of drugs with the intent to distribute. Attorney Gary D. Stone consults with private investigators and thoroughly reviews the actions and decisions of law enforcement. If a search of your car or home was involved, he identifies deviations from proper police procedure that may involve violations of your constitutional rights.

Informants And Drug-Dealing Charges
It is not uncommon for investigators and prosecutors to work with informants. In cases involving drug-dealing, people who face serious charges of their own may be offered reduced sentences or probation if they agree to inform on you. Unfortunately, informants do not always have the moral scruples necessary to tell the truth. As a former prosecutor, Mr. Stone is experienced in identifying questionable testimony offered by self-interested informants looking for deals that will get them out of jail. That is why he is prepared to investigate informants and expose deals with prosecutors that should cause jurors to question whether the informants are telling the truth.
Sentencing In Drug-Dealing Charges Cases
If you are convicted of dealing drugs, the sentence you face depends on a number of factors. While the state of Kansas has guidelines relative to the amount and kind of drugs involved, judges have some discretion. As your attorney, Mr. Stone will work hard to reduce the sentence against you. Willingness to enter a drug rehabilitation program, perform community service, talk to young people about the dangers of drugs or other service options can convince the court to lessen your sentence.
