Gilbert Drug Possession

There are various types of drug crimes in Arizona, the penalties for which depend on the type and amount of substance that is involved, along with other factors in the case. Possession, distribution and cultivation of narcotics are illegal in the State of Arizona. The penalties for violating these laws can be harsh and the consequences long lasting. If you have been charged with drug possession you should seek the legal assistance of an attorney from the Law Offices of Trent R. Buckallew, PC.

The penalties for various drug crimes can involve prison sentences, probation, fees and fines, and other penalties. For example, if you have been charged with possession of less than two pounds of marijuana, without the intent to sell then you could face up to one year in prison as this is considered a class six felony. If you were arrested with more than four pounds in your possession with the intent to sell, this is a class two felony that has a penalty of up to five years in prison. Given the range of possible penalties in any drug related charge, it is important to consult with an attorney who is familiar with Arizona drug laws and associated penalties before making any decisions in your case. Mr. Buckallew has handled countless drug possession and sales cases across the state and understands the complexities involved in bringing these types of cases to resolution.
