Drug Possession Lawyers

If you are caught with illegal drugs, whether for personal consumption, sale, or distribution, you could face serious consequences.  It is a crime, in both state and federal jurisdiction, to willfully have illegal controlled substances in your possession.

Drug offenses are classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony.  To reach a judgement, the courts will consider many different factors, including but not limited to the:

  • Type of drug 
  • Amount 
  • Geographic location where the offense took place
  • Circumstances of your arrest.

Drug possession, even in a very small amount, is a crime that is punishable by incarceration, loss of civil rights and hefty fines.  For first-time offenders, the fines start at $500 and you could be sent to jail for up to a year.

As the amount of drugs in possession increases, along with the type and their intended use, so do the consequences.  Your chances of securing employment are significantly affected when a drug charge is placed on your record.
