Though Colorado has legalized marijuana for personal use, severe sanctions still exist for individuals convicted of drug crimes. For certain substances, even a first possession offense involving a small amount can lead to felony charges and several years in prison. When larger amounts indicate potential sale, manufacture or trafficking, the penalties escalate quickly, and even innocuous household items such as scales can trigger a prosecution. Jennifer Watkins works tirelessly to combat charges that are unjustly severe or simply incorrect. She has a detailed understanding of search and seizure laws to help exclude any wrongfully obtained evidence.
Convictions for misdemeanor offenses in Colorado can lead to fines, probation, and jail terms of up to 18 months. Additionally, a criminal record could prevent you from obtaining the job or home that you seek. In cases involving charges such as assault, theft, or drug possession, attorney Jennifer Watkins works diligently to identify and develop all potential defenses that might exist. She understands that arrests in such cases often turn on mistakes or on information that the arresting officer is not aware of. Ms. Watkins ensures that each relevant detail is brought to the court’s attention. And with a background in both public and private practice, she seeks sentencing options such as community service or substance abuse treatment that can keep her clients out of jail.
