The penalty you would receive if convicted of a drug crime depends on several factors. The Arizona Legislature has provided different sentences for crimes such as possession, cultivation, manufacture, possession with intent to distribute, sales or trafficking, and certain crimes will be charged on the federal level. Punishments range from probation or jail time to extensive terms in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. Your potential sentence also depends on the type of drug, whether it was marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, peyote or prescription drugs. The quantity of drugs will largely influence your punishment, as the penalty for possession of a small amount for personal use is not considered as serious as for large amounts which are intended for distribution.
Possession, Sales, Cultivation, Manufacturing and Other Drug Offenses
It is easy to feel overwhelmed and frightened when you are under suspicion for a drug crime, but you should not let the prosecutor intimidate you into a plea bargain before speaking with us about the situation. No matter how bad the situation may appear, you have options. There are many proven criminal defense strategies, such as challenging the Constitutionality of the investigation or arrest, as well as disproving the reliability of the evidence or demonstrating that there is insufficient proof to convict you. It may also be possible to negotiate a better deal with the prosecutor. The most important thing you can do is exercise your rights to remain silent and to retain an attorney.
