Being charged with any kind of crime can make you feel anxious about your future. This is particularly true if you're accused of Internet crimes or child pornography. These crimes have very specific penalties and can impact you for the rest of your life. You could have to be listed on a sex offender registry for the rest of your life, even if you fulfill your punishment otherwise.
Some drug possession defenses can work well when you're trying to show why you had drugs that were either illegal or not prescribed to you. If you decide not to plead guilty, then you can fight the charges and hopefully reduce or eliminate them.
Children and teens make mistakes. There's no question that adolescence is a time when you learn new things and push the limits of your personal boundaries. You also may push the limits of the law, not realizing how breaking the law can affect you in the long run.
Regardless of the reason you've been accused of drug crimes, you need to know that they can be charged at both the state and federal level. What does that mean to you? It means that the penalties you could be facing can be significantly different depending on where your case is tried. Typically, federal convictions come with higher penalties that could affect your life in the long term.
