Although you (like most adults) is most likely aware that being caught in possession of an illegal drug such as cocaine, heroin or marijuana can result in serious legal troubles, you may not be aware you can be prosecuted for possession of items related to those drugs—even when no actual drugs are found.

Drug paraphernalia crimes in the state of Mississippi are described in the 2013 Mississippi Code, Title 41, Chapter 29. Under this code, it is unlawful for any person to “deliver, sell, possess with intent to deliver or sell, or manufacture with intent to deliver or sell, paraphernalia…”

If you have been charged with a drug crime in the state of Mississippi, you may feel as though there is little hope for your future. While the charges certainly are serious—and should be taken seriously—there are defenses your drug crime attorney can use on your behalf in order to lessen the potential penalties. First, however, there are a broad range of charges associated with drugs.

You may have been charged with drug possession, which is certainly one of the more serious types of drug crime, or possession with the intent to distribute, which can bring even harsher penalties. Perhaps you were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, which, in the state of Mississippi, actually carries heftier penalties than a conviction for possession of smaller amounts of marijuana. Whatever type of drug crime you have been charged with, your Mississippi attorney may incorporate one or more of the following defenses:

The term “breaking and entering” usually conjures up an image similar to those we see in the movies. A person dressed entirely in black sneaks into an open window and steals the family silver.

Breaking and entering in the state of Mississippi, however, can encompass much more. The state of Mississippi defines burglary as breaking and entering into a structure (not a home), with the intent of committing a crime once inside.

Before starting your motorcycle accident claim, there are key facts you need to check.

Starting any type of personal injury claim requires you to get the right facts and figures. Otherwise any miscalculations or incorrect information can significantly reduce the amount of compensation you could win.

Being involved in a car accident can have long term psychological effects.

Car accidents can happen out of nowhere and cause serious damage. Severe injuries, such as amputations, paralysis and permanent damage to the spinal cord, are injuries that can often cause psychological issues too.

When you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, you need a trusted lawyer to look after your case.

Unlike being in a car accident, being on a motorcycle in any kind of collision can cause serious life-changing injuries. While many bike riders enjoy the thrill of riding a motorbike, there are higher risks.
