The answer provided is for educational purposes only. It does not constitute legal advice or create an attorney-client relationship. You should consult an attorney for legal advice regarding the facts of your specific case and designed to help you with your personal needs.
Every case varies depending on the law and the facts. Because questions often fail to disclose important facts, these 'answers' cannot and should not be relied upon as a replacement for a full or complete review of an actual case by a retained attorney.

Nor do you currently qualify for the state's attorney's drug school program. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you; most of us provide free consultations. If you demonstrate to the court that you cannot afford one, the court will appoint the PD. www.galivanlaw.net
