Drug Crimes

IF CHARGED WITH A DRUG OFFENSE YOU FACE JAIL TIME AND A LOSS OF YOUR DRIVER’S LICENSE

If you are charged with a Drug Offense in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, you face potential jail time and a loss of your driver’s license. If you are charged with a Felony Drug Offense (Delivery or Poss. with Intent to Deliver) you face potential mandatory jail time. If you are charged with A Felony Drug Offense and a Firearms Offense, you possibly face a mandatory five years in jail.

Possession with Intent to Deliver is a unique crime. Often the police charge individuals with this serious crime based on nothing more than their own speculation that the person was going to deliver the drugs to an unspecified person at some unspecified time. Pittsburgh Criminal Defense Attorney Robert E. Mielnicki has been cross examining police officers for more than 25 years about their opinions that his clients possessed drugs with an intent to deliver them. He has folders of information from government websites and publications and books from addiction specialist as to the quantity of drugs a person addicted to such can expect to consume on a daily basis. He is often surprised that upon cross examining police officers, who chose to charge his clients with intent to deliver, that the officer has very little knowledge at all about how much drugs an addict can consume on a daily basis yet he has chosen to charge the intent to deliver based upon his client possessing an amount that could be consumed in a day or two.

Mielnicki was very knowledge and he is an email machine. He kept me informed throughout the whole process, and was very honest in all questions I had for him. There were a few points during the trial where people’s descriptions of the events were “mistaken/forgotten/not told truthfully”, and Mielnicki was quick to catch them and point them out to the jury. I’m glad I did my research before just picking any lawyer. Would HIGHLY recommend Attorney Mielnicki.” Client – Avvo – 2015

“*****I was referred to Robert “Bob” Mielnicki for a defense attorney after I was indicted on federal charges. Bob has had a lot of experience in state and federal cases which made me confident in his skills. Bob is excellent on communication, he always responds to my emails and will call within 24 hours if I leave a message. For my case, Bob negotiated for me a plea deal. Initially I had a chance to go to jail. However, Bob found something that helped to lower the severity of my sentence and he fought for it. He was able to get my sentencing guidelines reduced, which meant probation is more likely. His rate is incredibly affordable. He is extremely flexible and easy to work with. He makes time to meet me on my schedule, which has been very appreciated. I highly recommend Robert Mielnicki as criminal lawyer, I don’t know how I could have survived this process without him.” Client – Google – 2015
