Drug Offenses in Ohio
Due to the “War on Drugs” declared by state and federal law enforcement agencies, many serious drug offenses in Ohio carry a penalty of mandatory prison time. In addition, prosecutors in Ohio are looking for an increase in punishment terms for individuals found guilty of drug crimes. The difference between a guilty and non-guilty finding for a drug charge can often be directly attributed to the quality of defense an individual receives throughout the judicial process.
The attorneys at Luftman, Heck and Associates in Ohio offer extensive experience representing clients on a wide range of drug charges.
