Aggravating Circumstances - Drug Possession

Penalties for conviction of drug possession (or any drug crime) can range from a slap on the wrist to years in prison. The following are circumstances that can lead to harsher penalties:

  • Possession of a firearm with the drugs
  • Possession of harder drugs, such as methamphetamines, cocaine, or heroin
  • Drug possession with intent to sell
  • A prior criminal record

Our goal is to keep you away from aggravated charges by negotiating with the prosecution or proving your innocence in court.

Caught Under the Influence of Crack, Meth, or Heroin?

If you are caught under the influence of a harder drug such as meth or cocaine, the court must, under the law, sentence you to one of two things:

  • An 18-24 month diversionary program that includes drug testing and classes; or
  • At least 90 days in jail if you fail out of the diversionary program or decline to participate

The only way to fight the penalties is to fight the arrest and your charges.
