Representation for Different Types of Drug Crimes
When you are staring down a drug crime charge, it can be intimidating, if not outright frightful. A conviction could place you behind bars for months or years, force you to pay thousands of dollars in fines, and follow you around as a negative cloud for the rest of your life. Empower yourself and find confidence in your future again by coming to our criminal defense lawyers for representation and moral support. We make it simple to begin your defense because we can handle virtually any drug crime case.
Some examples of drug crime cases we can manage include:
- Possession: If you have any amount of an illicit or illegal substance in your possession or in your private property, then you can be charged with drug possession. The penalties will typically escalate depending on the substance in question, with “harder” drugs being penalized worse than less dangerous substances. It must be noted that marijuana possession is still illegal in Pennsylvania. Possessing even one gram of marijuana is a misdemeanor.
- Possession with intent to distribute: Someone found with a large quantity of an illegal substance may be charged with possession with intent to distribute, or a similar crime. The underlying connotation is that an individual would not have great amounts of drugs for their own use, and would likely be planning to distribute or sell it to others.
- Trafficking: Moving an illegal substance from one location or one person to another can constitute drug trafficking. This offense may be broadened to distribution, manufacturing, and cultivation, depending on the circumstances surrounding an arrest.
