My Sister Was Arrested for Possession

No one was more surprised than me when my sister was arrested for drug possession. I guess her close friends knew that she was using, but none of us in the family were aware until she was charged with a felony. She was ashamed and embarrassed, but that did not stop me from reaching out to her. I knew that we needed to get her a great drug lawyer in Latham NY because she is a divorced mother of two children, and I was worried that her ex would use this against her.

That was not the only reason though. I realized that she had a problem that she had been doing her best to hide from the rest of us, and I wanted her to beat the addiction that had her under its control. She allowed me to hire her a lawyer. I wanted one that was going to focus on her case and fight for her rather than a public defender who was probably overworked and juggling a ton of cases. My sister is just too important to me to allow that to happen so I got her the best defense that was available.

It turned out to be the right call, because she didn’t even have to spend a day in jail. I am not saying she got off easy, because she didn’t. She was admitted into a drug program that helps users overcome their addiction. She was held highly accountable for her actions and had to be tested on a regular basis. I am so grateful for this lawyer because I honestly feel that we would have lost her if she had gone into the system. Now, she has a second chance because of her lawyer’s expertise and her determination, and she is taking full advantage of it.
