An Overview of Drug Crimes

A variety of offenses are classified as drug crimes, including possession, sale, manufacture and distribution of controlled substances. The specific case will determine whether the violation involves state law, federal law, or both. The consequences can range from monetary fines and probation to mandatory drug treatment programs, prison and forfeiture of property. Even seemingly minor penalties can have lasting consequences when drug activity is conducted near schools or parks, or if firearms or minors are involved.

Search and Seizure

Citizens are protected against unreasonable search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution. Questions surrounding the legality of methods used by law enforcement to obtain evidence are often challenged, as evidence may be inadmissible when obtained in violation of the Fourth Amendment. In many cases, the State may drop the charges in the absence of evidence needed to support its case. A drug lawyer from our firm can advise you regarding how evidence was obtained in your particular case.

Civil and Criminal Forfeiture

The action of the government seizing property connected to illegal activity is known as forfeiture. When your assets are subject to forfeiture, you need an experienced attorney to learn about your rights and options.

Federal Drug Charges

Drugs are classified in five categories known as Schedules under the Comprehensive Drug Prevention and Control Act of 1970, often referred to as the Controlled Substances Act. The law establishes requirements for drug manufacturer and distribution, and penalties for violations. The penalties can be serious, particularly when sentence-enhancing factors are involved.

Incarceration Alternatives

Beginning in the 1980s, the approach to drug crimes shifted and drug courts were developed to provide alternatives to incarceration for individuals convicted of drug crimes. A greater emphasis has been placed on treatment for substance abuse for rehabilitation and reducing repeat offenses. A drug attorney from Brabazon Law Office can explain the possible alternatives to incarceration in your circumstances.
