Drug Crime Charges We Fight

Before you can defend yourself from a drug-related charge, you need to understand for what you were arrested. If you don't know why you were arrested – or if you don't know the difference between certain drug-related crimes – you need to contact us right away for a free consultation.

Common drug crimes include:

  • Use: You may be arrested under suspicion of using an illicit substance. If any quantity of an illegal drug is found in your system – blood or urine tests may be administered – you will be facing drug crime charges.
  • Possession: Holding onto but not necessarily using an illegal drug is a crime. If the substance is found within your property and you cannot prove you were unaware of its existence, you may be facing drug possession charges.
  • Distribution: Whether selling an illegal drug or merely handing it to another person, distribution is a serious offense that often carries high fines and jail time.

It should be noted that drug charges do not need to be applied exclusively to illegal substances. You may be charged with a drug crime if unusual or suspicious quantities of a common painkillers or anti-depressants, as well as an assortment of other prescription medications, were involved. Additionally, where you were arrested may drastically affect the punishments you could be facing, as being near a school zone with illicit substances may be considered a felony.
