Drug Crimes

Drug crimes can range from simple possession to large scale drug conspiracies.  In Arizona, the penalties for these crimes can range from mandatory probation to life in prison.  One of the biggest factors in determining what the type of sentence imposed is the quantity of drugs involved.  Another factor is the type of drug involved.  Crimes involving methamphetamine, for example, are subject to more severe sentences under Arizona law.  The role that someone plays in a drug offense is also a consideration.  A manager or supervisor in a drug distribution network may be treated much more harshly than a drug courier, although even a courier is likely to face stiff penalties.  If weapons are used, or even possessed during a drug crime, additional charges are usually filed.

We have represented a wide range of clients charged with a variety of drug offenses, from clients charged with simple possession to clients alleged to be leaders of drug trafficking organizations.  We have also represented clients alleged to be involved with a variety of illegal substances, including marijuana, heroin, cocaine, crack-cocaine, methamphetamine, and prescription medication.  We represent clients charged with the following drug crimes:

  • Possession (Personal Use)
  • Possession with Intent to Distribute
  • Transportation / Trafficking
  • Sale / Distribution
  • Manufacture / Cultivation
  • Importation
  • Prescription Forgery
  • Conspiracy
  • Conducting a Criminal Enterprise

If you, or someone you know, is facing drug charges in Arizona, we can help.  Call for a free consultation at 520.314.4125 or contact us online.

IMPORTANT NOTE — The seizure and forfeiture of assets often accompanies state or federal drug charges.  Many times the government will initiate civil forfeiture proceedings against property it believes was used in a drug crime or purchased with the proceeds of a drug crime.  For more information about forfeitures, click:  Asset Forfeiture
