While a felony drug crime conviction can typically result in imprisonment, irreparable damage to your criminal record and other detrimental consequences, there may be an alternative. If you are facing your first felony drug charge, you may qualify for Illinois' first offender probation program.
Our highly trained drug possession lawyers at Miller & Pugh Law Offices, P.C., have extensive experience effectively obtaining first offender probation for our clients. Successful completion of the program can keep your felony drug charge off your criminal record.
Helping You Understand How to Keep a Felony Conviction Off Your Record
Seeking a dependable and competent criminal defense attorney when you have been charged with a felony crime may be one of the best decisions you will make in your life. Fortunately, some individuals are eligible for first offender probation for certain felony drug offenses.
When you contact our firm, our team will help you understand how first offender probation can help you avoid conviction of your alleged drug charge and protect you from the destructive ramifications such as:
- Denial of financial aid
- Reduced career opportunities
- Removal and/or denial of security clearance
- Residential living restrictions
