Kenosha Drug Crimes Attorney

Lawyer for Possession, Trafficking, & More in Wisconsin

Drug-related arrests are exceedingly common, but that does not mean they are not serious. Drug crimes range in seriousness from minor paraphernalia offenses all the way up to drug trafficking. Possession of controlled substances, which is one of the more common offenses, can be charged as a misdemeanor or as a felony depending on the specific substance involved and the quantity found. Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony drug charges, the consequences could be severe. In addition to judicial sentencing, you may face major collateral consequences, such as difficulty finding a job or housing.

We have firsthand experience helping defendants navigate the criminal justice system with the goal of minimizing or eliminating any consequences of the arrest. There are a number of defense strategies that may be available to you, but it will take the skill of an experienced criminal defense attorney to build the best possible defense in your case.

Kenosha Drug Crimes Attorney

Attorney for Cannabis Arrests in Kenosha County

In Wisconsin, you can still be arrested for having a small amount of marijuana, despite the fact that the substance is legal in many neighboring states. Cannabis possession is generally charged as a misdemeanor, but there are circumstances where THC products can carry much more serious charges. For example, if you are caught driving back from a nearby state such as Illinois with a significant amount of marijuana or marijuana-infused products such as edibles, you could even face felony drug trafficking charges, particularly if there is evidence suggesting that you intended to share or did share the drugs with others.

Our attorneys have helped numerous people accused of cannabis-related crimes in Wisconsin. We will aggressively pursue the best possible resolution to your charges possible.

Kenosha Drug Possession Attorney

Possession of "hard" drugs is generally taken very seriously. You may be charged with a felony depending on the substance you were alleged to have been in possession of and in what amount, even if you have never been in trouble with the law before.

Drug laws in Wisconsin can be very complex. No two substances are treated exactly the same way. It will take the experience and skill of a criminal defense attorney to navigate your charges and determine how best to defend you. In some cases, a diversion program may be your best option for avoiding jail time. In others, you may find a strong defense in arguing that you were unaware of the presence of drugs in an area you generally control, such as your car. We will meticulously review the facts of your case to identify your best possible defense strategy.

Drug Trafficking Attorney Serving Kenosha

Drug trafficking is one of the more serious drug-related offenses, even if it is charged as a misdemeanor. A conviction can lead to long prison sentences spanning years or even decades. It is easier than you may have thought to find yourself being prosecuted for trafficking. You need not be a large-scale drug smuggler or distributor to be charged with this offense. Even seemingly simple actions like breaking down a larger supply of a drug into smaller containers can fit the legal definition. Other actions that may result in trafficking charges include:

  • Sharing a drug with your friends.
  • Allowing friends to use drugs in your residence.
  • Storing a large amount of drugs.
  • Manufacturing a drug.
  • Selling a drug to someone else.

If you are facing drug trafficking charges in Wisconsin, it is important to find an experienced criminal defense attorney. The laws surrounding drug trafficking can be very complex, but there are defenses that may be available in your case.
