Drug Crime

Overview

With drug charges, the difference between doing time and not doing time could rest with getting an attorney involved before you say a word. When faced with these types of charges, you should contact us immediately for a consultation. Our defense attorneys have decades of experience in defending clients accused of serious crimes, including driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI), and charges like possession or trafficking. We can help you understand the charges against you and defend you against those charges.

People of all ages and backgrounds are arrested daily in the United States for possession of drugs or paraphernalia and other drug-related crimes. In many cases, the accused has been the victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, an unfortunate circumstance that can lead to a miscarriage of justice. In all of these types of cases, you should hire a competent defense attorney to represent you, such as those found at Dungan & LeFevre.

Types of Drug Violations

Violations that may result in an arrest include:

  • Cultivation of narcotics
  • Distribution of narcotics
  • Driving under the influence
  • Drug growing
  • Drug making
  • Drug use
  • Manufacturing drugs
  • Possession of an illegal substance
  • Possession of drugs for sale
  • Trafficking
  • Being under the influence of narcotics

If you have been arrested under suspicion of committing one of these violations, you may be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony depending upon such factors as type, amount, and intent of the narcotic possession. Conviction may result in serious financial repercussions, including loss of job, loss of license, and possible incarceration.
