I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone. Got my DUI dismissed for being under the legal limit. They were very reassuring during my entire process.

Aaron, Avvo Review

I was in a very difficult predicament, and I found myself contacting Mr. Krep’s firm for the SECOND time in 2 years. To be honest, I thought I was about to have the hammer dropped on me, but Mr. Kreps and his team fought for me tooth and nail, utilized every aspect of the situation, and literally got me the BEST case scenario. I can’t even begin to describe how good of an outcome my trial ended up being. If you’re reading this and in need of a DUI lawyer, stop reading right now and contact the Kreps Law Firm. It will be the best decision you will make throughout this entire process. I know we all read reviews and think most of them are hogwash, but they literally saved my career, and I couldn’t be any more grateful for the hard work and dedication to me and my situation they provided.

Caroline Pruitt at The Kreps Law Firm, LLC did an outstanding job handling my DUI case. I knew right when she walked into the courtroom that I was in good hands. From start to finish, The Kreps Law Firm, LLC was second to none. I am very pleased with the way they treated me from start to finish; Tremendous customer service, very well thought out website that is user friendly, and a phenomenal attorney at a reasonable rate. I mean every word of that! Thank you all for your roles in helping me with my case!

Vanessa, Avvo Review

The morning of trial felt like an anxious blur, but as soon my trial began and Caroline started presenting my case, my anxiety turned into optimism. She presented my case so clearly and with such confidence, I was truly impressed. It was obvious that Caroline spent many hours working on my case and finding the best way to approach it. Her hard work paid off for me with a not guilty verdict. I will be forever grateful for the hard work that Caroline put into my case and fighting for me. I would recommend Kreps Law Firm to anyone in a similar situation, I promise you will not regret it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance is committed when a person possesses any of the substances listed in the state’s controlled substances schedules (including, for example, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine). Ala. Code 13A-12-212. Possession of a Controlled Substance is a Class C felony.

Possessing a higher amount of a controlled substance makes it more likely that you will be charged with a felony. In Alabama, possession of a substance over a certain amount will shift the charges from a misdemeanor to a felony.

On first offense, possession of drug paraphernalia is a Class A misdemeanor carrying up to a year in prison. Any subsequent offense is a Class C felony punishable by one to ten years in prison. Delivering paraphernalia to a minor who is at least three years younger than you is a Class B felony carrying 2 to 20 years.

In Alabama, the criminal penalties depend on what type of controlled substance a person is convicted of possessing and whether the individual has a prior conviction. First time offenders arrested with an amount that would be considered “personal” are less likely to serve jail time, especially with a proper legal representation. However, if you are being charged with possesion with intent to distribute, even if it is your first time, you will likely serve jail time. Your only recourse is to speak with a knowledgeable attorney to see if there are weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case.

This can get you between 1 and 10 years in prison and up to a $15,000 fine. Possession of pot for personal use is only a Class A misdemeanor (the highest misdemeanor in Alabama). This is possession in the second degree. A Class A misdemeanor can be sentenced to not more than a year in jail and up to a $6,000 fine.

(a) A person commits the crime of unlawful distribution of controlled substances if, except as otherwise authorized, he or she sells, furnishes, gives away, delivers, or distributes a controlled substance enumerated in Schedules I through V. (b) Unlawful distribution of controlled substances is a Class B felony.

The defense of a person charged with possession of controlled substance is often difficult, but not impossible. In Alabama, if a prosecutor fails to provide materials during discovery it is possible to seek dismissal of the charges as a sanction against the state.

Any person found in possession of a drug or medicine limited by law to dispensation by a prescription, unless such drug or medicine was lawfully dispensed, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, shall be fined not more than $1,000 and, in addition thereto, may be imprisoned in the county jail for hard labor for not more than one year.
