The consequences and penalties of a drug-related conviction can be far reaching. We have the skill and experience to identify complex legal issues that commonly arise in drug-related offenses and leveraging these issues in the defense of these cases. We have a strong record of success in defending drug-related cases.
Arrests and convictions for drug offenses dominate the criminal justice system in Ohio. Common offenses seen in the state include:
- Trafficking (selling) controlled substances
- Illegal manufacture of drugs
- Illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for manufacturing drugs
- Possession of a controlled substance or related paraphernalia
- Unlawful purchase of pseudoephedrine, which is used to create methamphetamine
In Ohio and elsewhere in the country, the repercussions for even minor drug-related crimes can be severe due to very stringent state and federal drug laws. Penalties vary depending on the offense, amount, and kind of drug involved, but even small quantities of a controlled substance could constitute a felony. Without strong representation in court to ensure your fair treatment, a drug conviction could result in extended incarceration, expensive fines, or a court-mandated drug treatment program.
