Drug Offenses

Drug charges can range from state crimes like simple possession of marijuana, to federal crimes like drug distribution. The consequences you may be facing if you are convicted of a drug charge can be quite serious. If you are convicted, you face many severe consequences, such as jail time or hefty fines, so you need a Charleston criminal defense attorney. If you or a loved one have been charged with a drug charge then give criminal defense attorney Trey Harrell a call for a free consultation.

Federal Crimes

Federal prosecutions are very different from state cases. Surprisingly, many Charleston defense attorneys are not properly licensed to handle the defense of a federal criminal case. The rules are quite different between state and federal court, especially the horribly complicated Federal Sentencing Guidelines. However, Trey Harrell is a Charleston criminal defense attorney who is licensed in the Federal District of South Carolina and is ready to work with you.

Bond Hearings

As your bond hearing attorney, Trey Harrell can protect your rights as well as your interests throughout the entire bond process, particularly in front of the Judge in the bond hearing. Trey Harrell will speak on your behalf in an attempt to convince the court that you are neither a danger to the community nor a flight risk.

Disorderly Conduct

Under South Carolina law, it is actually a misdemeanor for a person to appear "grossly intoxicated" in a public or otherwise act in a disorderly or "boisterous" way. In most cases, an individual is getting out of control so the law enforcement officer makes decision to use the charge of disorderly conduct and most people just pay the ticket. However, what seems like a minimal charge can have drastic consequences and cause many headaches at a later date. If you or a loved one has been charged with disorderly conduct, call Charleston defense attorney Trey Harrell for a free consult to discuss the situation and make sure you are aware of the potential consequences.
