Drug Charges

Facing drug charges in the Myrtle Beach area or in South Carolina?

Consider a drug attorney that’s been defending people for over 15 years.

Whether you’ve been charged with simple possession or trafficking cocaine in South Carolina, a drug offense can have a major impact on your life.

If you’re convicted, you can have a criminal record (for life) which will make it difficult or impossible for you to get a job, qualify for financial aid or student loans, vote, carry a firearm, or enter the military.

In addition, the fines, penalties, and jail time can be severe depending on the factors surrounding the charge.

Here are a few examples of what you could be facing:

  • Trafficking in Marijuana, 3rd offense carries a mandatory 25 year jail sentence and a $25,000 fine.
  • Possession with Intent to Distribute (PWID) Cocaine, 3rd offense carries 10-30 years in jail, and/or up to a $50,000 fine.
  • Trafficking Heroin, 1st offense carries a 7-25 year jail sentence and a $50,000 fine.
