Building Your Defense
Kenneth Crislip will carefully review the factual and legal issues in your case. Many drug cases hinge on constitutional issues involving illegal search and seizure, the use of informants, controlled buys and other challengeable police actions. Whenever possible, Kenneth Crislip will seek to exclude evidence and obtain a dismissal of the charge. Cases involving charges such as marijuana possession can often be resolved in a satisfactory manner without need for a trial. Drug trafficking charges on the other hand, usually go to trial. Whatever the nature of your case, Kenneth Crislip will aggressively defend your rights and freedom at all stages of the legal process.
Diversion Rather Than Conviction
In some drug charge cases, it may be possible to avoid a conviction and jail time. Participation in a diversion program or what is called intervention in lieu of conviction can help you avoid the worst consequences of a conviction as well as treatment for chemical dependency. Kenneth Crislip has helped many people in the Akron area and northeast Ohio obtain these outcomes. If you qualify and could benefit from a diversion program, Kenneth will work with the prosecutor to obtain it for you.
