Birmingham Drug Crime Attorney
Fighting Tirelessly for Your Rights
Although drug arrests do not always make the news headlines, a drug charge can have a significant impact on your life. A drug conviction can lead to the loss of your driver’s license, your job, and/or your ability to carry a firearm in the future, not to mention severe fines and possible jail time. At Ingram Law, LLC, our Birmingham drug crime lawyer represents Jefferson County residents charged with possession, distribution, and other offenses related to controlled substances. Our team works aggressively to get charges dropped or reduced whenever possible.
Rising Drug Charges
The number of people being charged with drug crimes has been on the increase since 1980. Illegal possession of prescription medications, heroin, and cocaine trafficking, and other drug-related charges have increased every year since 1980. There is little incentive for law enforcement officials and politicians to reconsider drug sentencing guidelines or drug laws; the country remains supportive of “tough-on-crime” stances even when those stances lead to an unfair justice system.

Penalties for Drug Crimes Crimes
In the state of Alabama, drug crimes are charged as either a misdemeanor or felony based on two main factors. These are what type of drug and how much of it did you possess when you were arrested. Regardless if you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony you be facing probation, lengthy jail sentences, hefty fines and more. That is why you should contact the experienced drug crime attorneys from Ingram Law, LLC.
How We Can Help You
The good news for a person charged with a drug crime in Alabama is that the law offers you a number of potential protections. These include defenses related to the manner in which the police came to find the drugs that you are alleged to have possessed or distributed.
Drug cases often come down to questions about whether the police were authorized under the law to search you, your car, or your home.
That authorization depends on whether:
- They had a warrant
- Other evidence gave them a reasonable suspicion or probable cause to believe a crime was being committed
- Other exigent circumstances were involved
The bottom line is that a person facing a drug charge in Alabama should seek the counsel of a seasoned Birmingham criminal defense lawyer to explore these and other issues.
