If you are facing a DWI or DUI charge, it is important that you understand what is at stake. This is a serious charge that will impact your future. From the moment you are stopped, your behavior matters, it is in your interest to seek counsel early in the process. Don’t hesitate to call me at any time.
Drug crimes come in many sizes—from first time offenders caught with a small amount of drugs in a pocket to career offenders and major drug seizures—I’ve seen it. Whether it is in Federal or State court, I’ve helped individuals navigate possession for personal use, and I’ve worked with supervisors of drug trafficking organizations.
Wherever you fall in the spectrum, a drug charge is a felony charge. I have defended clients with the following drug crimes:
- Drug possession
- Drug possession with intent to sell (drug trafficking)
- Drug manufacturing
- Drug distribution
The type of drug also makes a difference in how drug possession, drug trafficking or drug manufacturing is charged. I have experience defending matters involving the following substances:
- Cocaine (Ice, Rock)
- Crack cocaine
- Date rape drugs (GHB or gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid)
- Ketamine (Special K or K)
- Marijuana (plant and wax)
- Methamphetamine (meth)
- Prescription narcotics (barbiturates, benzodiazepines, morphine codeine, oxycodone and Vicodin)
- Psilocybin mushrooms
It is important for you to know that different laws apply to different types of drugs, as well as to different types of drug activities. It is in your interest to seek guidance on your rights and your options on any drug charge.
Drug Crimes and Extenuating Circumstances
It is often the case that a drug crime is charged in conjunction with some other activity, such as a DUI and drug possession. A routine traffic violation could lead to a drug-trafficking charge. Drug possession in conjunction with illegal possession of a firearm or parole violation is yet another matter. Drug crimes are serious matters when considered alone, and when charged in conjunction with other offenses can escalate the potential consequences.
Again, it is in your interest to seek counsel to guide you under these circumstances. Don’t hesitate to call me. Kevin DeVore: 651-312-6519
