Indicted for Distribution of Drugs in Union County
When you are initially charged with a felony, your case is sent up to the Union County Criminal Division Manager’s Office and the Prosecutor’s Office so they can review the facts and details of your case and decide whether it’s in the State’s interests to keep your charges at county level or downgrade and remand the charges back to municipal court. By getting an experienced criminal defense attorney involved early on, you will put yourself in a much more strategic position to resolve your case as a lesser charge or get it remanded. Our firm will work with the Union Prosecutor’s Office in order to resolve your case early on and negotiate for less exposure as an accusation instead of letting your case go to the grand jury for indictment.
