Common Drug Crimes
There are a wide range of criminal charges that you can be faced with, and drug crimes are amongst the most serious. The majority of drug crimes are felonies that may cause you to end up in state prison, not to mention the thousands of dollars in fines you will be faced with. It should be noted that some drug crimes may be considered misdemeanors, such as being in possession of tiny amounts of marijuana. Our criminal defense attorneys at AMA Law have extensive experience representing individuals in Oklahoma who have been charged with a drug crime. Some of the most common types of drug offenses we have seen include the following:
- Possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia
- Distribution or transportation of drugs
- Drug trafficking
- Selling drugs
- Manufacturing or cultivating drugs
It is important to remember that the punishment or penalty for the drug offense you are charged with will vary depending on the type of drug, the amount in question, and the specific offense. Marijuana crimes are typically far less severe than those involving cocaine, heroin, or other dangerous drugs. Learn more by scheduling a consultation with an Oklahoma City drug lawyer.
Your Rights When Charged With A Drug Crime
The state of Oklahoma requires solid evidence against the defendant that proves they were involved in the particular offense which they are being charged with. Additionally, they must be aware of the presence of the drugs in question, whether they are carrying them or have them in their presence. Our skilled drug defense attorneys at AMA Law have extensive experience representing individuals who have been charged with a drug crime in Oklahoma City, Norman, Tulsa, and surrounding areas. In some cases, we have represented innocent individuals who were the victim of a “setup” by a third party. We have also worked with individuals who have been charged with possession of a drug and have been able to prove they were unaware of its presence or that the illegal substance actually belonged to someone else.
