Lawrence County Man Avoids A License Suspension After Drug Charges
Not long ago, criminal defense attorney Samir Sarna aided a man in Lawrence County, PA after he was charged with possession of crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia. The man had prior convictions on his criminal record, but had largely improved his life and was now a hard-working family man. While he knew the probability of him serving time in jail for this recent transgression was fairly low, he was very worried about the impact on his ability to drive since he was working as a delivery driver and drug convictions usually result in a license suspension. In an effort to protect his freedom and his livelihood, he retained the legal services of Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC.
Attorney Sarna negotiated with the prosecutor’s office, who eventually agreed to withdraw the possession charge in exchange for the client pleading guilty to the paraphernalia offense. A conviction for paraphernalia would include a $150 fine and a term of probation, but would not result in jail time or a suspended driver license. The client agreed to accept these terms and in the end, he avoided any time in jail, kept his license and along with it, his job, which was always his primary goal.
