Throughout our extensive experience in the Criminal Courts in Scotland, we have successfully defended countless clients who have been accused of drug-related offences. Whether accused of low-level possession of drugs, either with or without intent to supply, or supply and trafficking drugs, we have a solid reputation for achieving results.
Drug-related offences can be prosecuted at both summary and solemn (jury) level. Although this means that drug-related offences can be relatively minor, it also means that they can end up being extremely serious. It is even possible for drug-related offences to be tried in the High Court of Justiciary where there is no limit to the sentence that can be imposed. It is therefore essential that proper legal representation is sought.
Furthermore, there are often aspects of cases involving drugs that require careful attention from a solicitor who is an expert in drug-related offences. It is not uncommon for a drug-related case to hinge on an adminicle of DNA or fingerprint evidence which may be inadmissible, or the search that discovered the search may have been illegal, so it’s imperative that an expert solicitor examines the case against you.
