Drug crimes can range from drug possession, sale of drugs, distribution, manufacturing, trafficking, transportation, cultivation, importing drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, and prescription drug fraud.
A drug offense may be a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the type of drug and the quantity found by law enforcement officials. A prior criminal record could also result in a more severe punishment than a first time defendant. If you’re convicted of a drug crime, you could face jail time, seizure of personal property and/or steep fines.
Prosecutors usually seek the maximum penalties for people who commit drug crimes, making it crucial that your attorney be skilled, experienced and aggressive in defending your case.
Lombard Law handles all types of state and federal drug crimes. We can advise you on the potential penalties and what your options may be. We can also fight to keep personal property that was seized and possibly avoid jail time.
If you have been arrested and/or charged with a state or federal drug crime, it is important that you contact a criminal defense lawyer who you can trust and is experienced in drug-related crimes.
