Oklahoma Drug Crime Attorney

Types of Drug-Related Offenses

Drug crime charges are some of the most serious criminal charges you can face. Although a few cases are misdemeanors, such as possession of small amounts of marijuana, most drug crimes are felonies that can land you in state prison and cost you thousands of dollars in fines. The most common drug offenses include:

  • Possession of drugs or paraphernalia
  • Distribution or Transportation
  • Trafficking
  • Sales \ Selling Drugs
  • Manufacturing or Cultivation

The penalties for these offenses vary depending on the offense, the type of drug, and the amount in question. Penalties for marijuana crimes will be much less severe than for crimes involving cocaine or heroin.

Defense Against Drug Charges

In order to prosecute a drug crime case, there must be solid evidence that the defendant was involved in the offense and that they were aware of the presence of the drugs. Some cases involve innocent individuals who were "set up" by another party and had no idea that they were transporting or in possession of an illegal substance. Even possession charges can be fought by proving that you were unaware of the drugs' presence, or that they belonged to someone else and you did not know they were there.
