A successful defense against drug-related criminal charges includes an investigation of the police procedures and methods resulting in the seizure of the evidence, and whether those methods were lawful. Often, these cases turn on the actions of the police and whether they acted properly or improperly.
Drug crimes are defined by 1) the type of drug, 2) the quantity of drug and 3) the method of committing the offense. Criminal penalties can range from a Class B Misdemeanor (punishable by up to 180 days in jail and/or a $2,000 fine) all the way up to a first-degree felony, where you could be facing up to life in prison and a fine as high as $10,000.
