An arrest for drug possession, manufacturing, distribution or trafficking in the state of Indiana is a very serious charge, one that demands equally serious legal representation. If you have recently been accused of a drug-related offense, contact an experienced drug crimes attorney immediately. A skilled drug crimes lawyer can make all the difference when it comes to avoiding the consequences of a drug conviction, including prison time, expensive fines and fees, mandatory counseling and community service.
A Serious Charge
Indiana prosecutors are ruthless when it comes to prosecuting those accused of drug crimes. Indeed, sentences associated with drug crime convictions are very exceedingly harsh. Under Indiana state law, the possession, sale, or manufacture (where applicable) of any of the following drugs is strictly illegal:
- Cannabis and its derivatives, including hashish and hash oil
- Cocaine and its derivatives, including crack
- Opium and its derivatives, including heroin, morphine, Oxycontin and Percocet (unless prescribed by a physician)
- Benzodiazepines, including Xanax and Klonopin (unless prescribed by a physician)
Indiana police officers are notorious for violating the civil rights of suspects when making arrests for drug crimes. If a law enforcement official searched your car, home or person without a warrant and/or without probable cause, we can get your case dismissed. Contact us as soon as possible to learn how we can help you following an arrest.
Experienced & Aggressive Representation
If you are facing charges of possession or distribution of illegal drugs, keep in mind that the arresting officer must be able to prove that the drugs being used as evidence to convict you did, in fact, belong to you. If a passenger in your car or a guest in your home was in possession of illegal drugs and you were charged because of it, we want to know about it. Talk to us about the specifics of your case — we can advise you what your rights are and how to proceed in establishing a robust criminal defense.
