Drug Charges

Drug charges cover a broad range of offenses, from the less severe, like simple possession of a small amount of certain drugs, to the more serious, such as participation in an ongoing drug-related criminal enterprise or manufacturing and distributing drugs. Even minor charges can be terrifying, however, and carry the risk of serious penalties upon conviction; the more serious charges, of course, can give rise to even graver consequences.

Often drug prosecutions involve the violation of important constitutional protections in the arrest or search and seizure, and we fight to protect your rights and hold the government accountable for their violations.  If the evidence against you was obtained as the result of an illegal search and seizure, the evidence can often not be used to convict you.

Examples of drug charges are possession of drugs such as marijuana, THC, cocaine, MDMA, heroin or methamphetamines, drug trafficking, intent to distribute drugs, and possession of drug paraphernalia such as marijuana pipes or scales for weighing drugs. If you have been charged with a drug crime, call our office right away.

We defend clients against all types of drug and narcotics charges, from simple possession to sales to transportation to trafficking. We research, write and argue narcotics-related motions, including motions to suppress evidence because of illegal searches and seizures, motions to quash search warrants, and motions to identify secret informants. We also assist clients in obtaining treatment programs and non-jail sentence alternatives.

Common drug law violations and narcotic offense charges include:

  • Cultivation and sales
  • Distribution
  • Importation
  • Manufacture
  • Possession of chemicals (such as ephedrine or pseudo ephedrine) for manufacturing
  • Possession of controlled substances
  • Trafficking
  • Transportation

You should never plead guilty to a drug charge without seeking a lawyer's advice. This is particularly important for high school and college students, since a conviction on a drug charge would make you ineligible for federal financial assistance for your education. If you are charged with a felony drug offense, you could lose your house or car if either was used for the manufacture or delivery of drugs. In addition to representing you on your drug charge, we will also represent you in any forfeiture proceedings related to the drug charge.

For first time offenders, we may be able to reduce the charges or obtain deferred adjudication probation.  Deferred adjudication sentence results in no conviction and allow you to say “no” if you are ever asked on a job application whether you have ever been convicted for a crime.  Furthermore, we may be able to seal your misdemeanor or felony criminal record after you successfully complete a deferred adjudication probation.

It takes an attorney with knowledge and experience to deal with the authorities when it comes to defending individuals against criminal drug charges. If you have been accused or charged with such a crime, please do not hesitate to contact The Sheena Law Firm immediately.
