Drug Possession Law and Schools

We will be happy to let you and your child know what the possible consequences are for drug possession at school.  Shawn knows how to get diversion programs for your child like HYTA and 7411!

Drug Testing at Schools

If your child is participating in sports or other competitive activities, they are subjected to random drug testing. This is due to a 2002 decision by the United States Supreme Court. The desire of this law is to help catch and prevent minors from using drugs. If minors are caught using drugs, the desire is to get them help asap!  If you hire our skilled drug crime lawyers and attorneys, you give your child the best chance possible of living a life that isn’t impacted for years because of a poor choice made by your child. Our lawyers will make sure your child knows the legal, mental and physical impacts of drug abuse.

Deferred Sentence under Section 7411

  • They have never been convicted of the possession or use of a controlled substance
  • They have only one prior conviction for possession or use of a controlled substance
  • They are not charged with delivery of a drug or a possession with intent to deliver or manufacturing of drugs.
