Drug Charges We Handle
Possession of a Controlled Substance
Possession is one of the most common types of drug charges. Most frequently, possession charges are brought at the state level, though there are certainly many exceptions to that general rule. If you were arrested for the alleged possession of a controlled substance, the punishment that you will face can vary based on different factors, including the specific substance in question, the amount of the drug that you had, the circumstances of the arrest, and your criminal record or lack thereof.
Drug Distribution/Trafficking Charges
Under state and federal regulations, it is illegal to sell, transport, or import controlled substances. State and federal prosecutors take distribution and trafficking charges very seriously. If you are facing such charges, there is no time to delay; you need to consult with an aggressive Colorado drug crimes defense lawyer immediately.
In Colorado, a defendant may be charged with drug manufacturing if they are alleged to have been involved in any part of a drug production process. Manufacturing of illegal drugs can lead to serious criminal penalties. If convicted, a defendant could large fines or jail time.
Federal Drug Offenses
You may find yourself facing federal drug charges. Often, federal drug cases involve many different defendants, usually as alleged co-conspirators in a drug ring. In addition, federal drug charges come with especially harsh penalties. If you are facing federal charges, you need a Colorado drug crimes defense lawyer who has prior experience in federal court.
