Drug Offenses

If you are charged with a drug offense it will fall under either a misdemeanor or felony. If one is charged with under 30 grams of marijuana, it can be charged from a Class A to a Class C misdemeanor depending on the amount seized by the police. Any and all other drugs including marijuana (over 30 grams) will be charged as a felony. Depending on the circumstances surrending the arrest and the amount will determine what class of felony.

A majority of drug charges are fought under the Fourth Amendment of the United States Consititution. The Fourth Amendment protects you from unreasonable search and seizure. In order to do so, a skilled and experienced attorney will file a motion to suppress the evidence based on that fact that the stopping of your person or vehicle and/or the search was a violation of your 4th amendment right.
