We Help With All Manner Of Drug Possession Charges
The kind of drug you are found with has a great deal of bearing on whether you are charged with a state or federal offense. While simple possession of a controlled substance can be a Class A misdemeanor, which can result in a maximum of a year in jail and a $2,000 fine, it is often charged as a Class D felony, which can lead to up to seven years in jail and a $10,000 fine, even for a first offense.
We also offer forceful defenses against other drug crimes including:
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Prescription drug charges
- Drug trafficking
- Drug paraphernalia
It is also important to remember that many drug charges are interconnected and prosecutors like to stack charges. A single drug bust could lead to far more than a single possession charge. That is one of the reasons you need an experienced drug defense attorney’s guidance.
