Las Vegas Drug Crime Attorney

Defending Against Your Drug Charges in Nevada

If you are facing drug charges you need to engage the services of high quality drug crime lawyer in Las Vegas as quickly as possible after being arrested. It is well worth the time to speak with an attorney in the face of such stiff penalties handed down for drug convictions.

At Brown Law Offices, our professional approach to criminal drug charges has led to a reputation as one of the top defenders in the Las Vegas area. We take on a limited number of cases so that they get the focus and time that is necessary to fight for the best possible outcome for you.

Potential Penalties for Drug Offenses

The types of penalties you will be facing in Las Vegas, will depend on large part on the type and amount of drug you are accused of possessing or distributing. Simple possession of one ounce of marijuana is just a $600 fine, for instance, but trafficking in more than 28 grams of heroin or ecstasy can come with 25 years to life in prison and a $500,000 fine.

Can Felony Drug Charges Be Dropped in Las Vegas?

If this is the defendant's first offense, prosecutors may be willing to reduce the drug charges to a misdemeanor with a $1,000 fine and possibly six months in jail. Drug possession is usually a felony in the state of Nevada.

Types of Drug Crime Defenses

Some of the many different types of defenses that are used to challenge drug charges include:

  • The defendant did not have clear possession or control over the drugs.
  • The defendant had a legal prescription for the drugs, such as for medical marijuana.
  • The defendant committed a lesser offense, such as possession for personal use as opposed to possession with intent to sell.
  • The drugs were obtained through illegal search and seizure by law enforcement.
  • Law enforcement officers used entrapment to make the arrest.

Our drug crime lawyer in Las Vegas know how to find weaknesses with prosecutors' claims and evidence. Sometimes, the evidence is simply not strong enough, such as when there are other people who had access to the drugs in question or when there are conflicting statements about the defendant's alleged crime. After you are charged with a drug offense, do not simply assume that you will be found guilty. There are oftentimes criminal defense tactics that you can use that you might not even be aware of.
