Marijuana Possession And Sale
In Indiana, marijuana possession and sale are common accusations. Possession of any amount is considered a misdemeanor, with greater penalties for prior offenses or possession of 30 grams or more. Conditional discharge may be available for first-time offenders. Sale or cultivation penalties are based on the amount of the offense, with higher maximum fines or incarceration times for sale to a minor. Regardless of the charges against you, our team of strong criminal defense lawyers and specialists can help.
Protecting Your Fourth Amendment Rights
In all drug crime cases, we pay close attention to how the police obtained the evidence against you. In some cases, they violate the defendant’s constitutional right to be free of unlawful search and seizure. Any evidence obtained by illegal means cannot be used against you in court. If authorities did not have probable cause to search you, your vehicle or your home, or if they failed to properly execute a search warrant, we will move to have the evidence against you suppressed. That’s why it pays to have an experienced team of attorneys on your side.
Discuss Your Charges With A Seasoned Attorney
We are experienced in defending clients in federal court on charges involving drugs, guns or both. Federal agencies often spend a great deal of time investigating a case. Sentences for convictions are severe. Do not wait until an arrest to contact a lawyer. If you suspect you are under investigation, please call our office as soon as possible.
