As the US sees a lot of leniency being given to drug-related convictions and some previously illegal drugs come onto the legal marketplace, there are some wondering: can you avoid jail time in 2020 if you are charged with a drug-related crime? The answer is a resounding yes, under the right circumstances you absolutely can.
The first step is to look into the best drug rehab centers near you and get yourself into one, pronto. Showing the judge and law enforcement officers you’re serious about some level of rehabilitation is going to go a long way. If you can’t get in due to waiting lists or price, do some research so you can present your case for one in front of a judge.
In addition to going into the best drug rehab centers you can find, you should be honest and open with the judge… but not too honest. Consult with your lawyer (you absolutely need one of those) for the best way to phrase an honest and heartfelt apology.
