The team at Sumner & Associates is experienced with drug crime cases in Michigan courts, and will be happy to work with you in this matter.
While many people don’t see possession of a small amount of marijuana as any big deal, the law doesn’t agree. You can face harsh penalties for even a minor possession charge, especially if it is your first offense. While rare, a marijuana possession arrest and conviction could lead to as much as four years in jail, depending on the circumstance.
There are any number of drug crimes that can be prosecuted in Michigan. Among those includes –
- Possession of marijuana
- Cocaine possession
- Drug cultivation and manfacture
- Drug distribution
- Drug trafficking
- Meth possession with intent to sell or deliver
- Prescription drug crimes
Any of the above can be a serious dent on your criminal record if you are convicted. You will face possible jail time, fines, probation, and more. Further, with a mark against your record, any future infractions or charges will be increased and could land you in jail for a long time.
Drug crimes can lead to any punishment from a small fine to life in prison. The state of Michigan is hard on drug offenders, so you will need a solid team of attorneys working for you in this case.
