Types Of Drug Offenses
Any situation involving an illegal substance or narcotic should not be taken lightly. It is important that all aspects of the case be examined, including any violation of search and seizure laws during the course of the discovery of the drugs. We thoroughly investigate each case and confidently handle a range of drug crimes that involve numerous types of drugs, including:
While many of these crimes would qualify as state crimes, many facets of the case may render the case a federal matter. Having handled cases in federal court, Mr. Willhelm can help you understand how the process works and what types of enhanced consequences you may be facing when charged with a federal crime.
Severity Of Consequences Depend On The Situation
If you are convicted of a drug offense, you will face a range of consequences. From fines and probation to extensive prison time, the punishments vary widely. Sentencing in drug cases may have mandatory elements, but it is dependent on multiple aspects of the arrest and case.
The type of drug in question can increase the consequences. For example, possession of heroin is treated as a more serious offense than possession of marijuana. Also, the amount of drug in question can also increase the severity of the punishments. The possession of a small amount of marijuana on your person for personal use carries less penalties than the possession of a pound or more of cocaine.
