EXERCISE YOUR RIGHTS
DeLuco Law has experience handling all types of drug cases ranging from simple possession to charges stemming from the manufacturing and trafficking of illegal drugs. He has experience handled drug cases at both the state and federal levels for all types of drugs including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and prescription drugs. If charged in either state or federal court, the drug laws are complex and the possible penalties depend on the type and quantity of the drug.
If found with even a small amount of drugs you could be convicted of possession which, while considered a minor offense to some, is a serious offense with possible penalties including jail time, losing your job, and a suspension of your driver’s license. However, depending on the severity of the charges you may be able to plead to a summary level disorderly conduct or even get probation without a verdict which will keep your criminal record clear.
The penalties increase substantially if the District Attorney’s offices charges you with the manufacturing or sale of illicit drugs. The maximum penalty for the manufacture, sale, or delivery of a schedule I (e.g. marijuana, heroine, and ecstasy) or schedule 2 drug (e.g. cocaine, oxycodone, and morphine) is up to 15 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
Because the consequences can be so severe, drug offenses require a comprehensive investigation by an aggressive and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer who can examine all the evidence and determine whether there was probable cause or constitutional rights were violated. For example, if there was no probable cause for a stop of your vehicle or the search of your person or home, the drugs seized should be inadmissible as evidence and your charges can be dismissed.
