Reach Out For Help If Drug Court Intimidates You

drug courtAre you facing a drug charge in court? Are you going to need representation? A little over a month ago, I was talking with a friend and his wife on the phone checking in and was told that they got pulled over and were both facing drug charges. Hers were for pills, and his one charge was for a half of a marijuana joint. What is striking even more is that about a week ago, before they even made it to court, he got pulled over again.

What do you think happened when he got pulled over again? This time he had the pills on him, and his bond was set at 800. His mom got him out of jail, but he is in kind of deep at the moment. In fact, they have a 6 year old child, and they are both a little worried. Drug court can worry anyone, but you have to keep your head up. What do you need to do to move forward?

If you can’t answer that question, then you might want to reach out for help. This doesn’t mean you just hire a lawyer. You may or my not need to hire one. Reach out to members of your community. You have family, friends, and there are community resources that are available to you. Plus, maybe you can find someone who has been in your position.

Find out as much as you can about your case. If it means that much to you, the actions you take should not only feel like a job but you’re making changes to your lifestyle in general. Strive to do what is right this day forward, and that focus will be helpful and rewarded. The grass will start to look greener if you keep making the right choices.

Working With The Local Police When You Have A Problem

When is it a good time to contact the local police? It’s not really too difficult to contact them, but once you do it can end in a situation getting worse sometimes. Only getting help when it’s necessary is a good idea.

Police officers can be called if you are involved in a situation you can’t take care of safely yourself. They should not be called if it’s a situation that is not that important. For instance, if someone messes up your order at a food place, that is something you need to take up with a manager. If, however, the person won’t give your money back and tries to attack you, then the police should be called in. Try to fix the situation without breaking any laws and if you can’t then leaving the situation alone may be better even than calling the cops when possible.

Crimes can happen at any time and place. There are different ways to contact the police. If the situation is not an emergency, there are non-emergency police numbers that each city has available for you to call. A non-emergency would be something like a car being parked in your spot in front of your house that’s just in the way. An emergency is when you can call 911, such as if you were just in an accident or are in immediate danger and need someone to come out to help you deal with it.

The local police are there to serve and protect you. But, if you are the one in the wrong you may end up in some legal trouble. Get a lawyer if you don’t think that you were treated fairly and always be careful about what you say when being arrested or talked to by the police.
