A friend has 2 Level 3D felony drug charge cases filed less than 30 days apart. Will she have to spend time in jail?

Asked over 1 year ago - Shawnee Mission, KS

Both of the drug charge cases also have a Level 5D paraphernalia charge associated with it as well. One of the cases was filed by the Johnson County Sheriff and the other by Overland Park police.

She must have the immediate help of a truly experienced criminal defense lawyer who handles a good number of drug cases.
