I am Attorney Frank Harper of Everett & Hite, L.L.P. I have extensive experience defending college students against all types of crimes in court and before student conduct and rights boards.
Student Drug Offenses In Eastern North Carolina Colleges
Whether you were at a party and the party was busted and you were caught with drugs or you are accused of prescription drug fraud, drug charges are very serious in North Carolina. As a college student you are likely considered an adult. You will not be tried as a juvenile, and are facing very serious fines, penalties and even jail time. This is serious.
I can help aggressively defend you against all types of drug crimes, including:
- Possession of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other illicit drugs
- Drug distribution and trafficking
- Drug manufacturing
- Illegal possession and sale of prescription drugs, including Adderall and Xanax
Prescription drug crimes are on the rise and the penalties are just as serious if not more.
A drug conviction not only affects your educational opportunities, but it can also jeopardize your future employment options and entire career. On almost every job application there are questions asking about your criminal record. A drug crime conviction will not look good to any employer.
