Utah Alchohol and Drug Lawyer
Facing Drugs Crimes Charges in Utah? Time is NOT on your side.
Being arrested for drug crimes in Utah is a harrowing experience. While several states have legalized marijuana and relaxed their drug laws, Utah isn’t among those states. When you face drug charges, family members may panic, your employer may preemptively put you on leave or fire you, and your community may turn on you. Even worse, a drug crime conviction can mean jail time, monetary fines, and forever having to answer “yes” when you’re asked whether you’ve ever been convicted of a crime. Tom Weber is ready and able to craft a strong, creative defense on your behalf. The stakes are high, but we’re standing by, eager to help.
Types of Utah Drugs Crimes Charges
There are a variety of drug crimes in Utah, including:
The punishments for Utah drug crimes range from a Class B misdemeanor, which can carry a sentence of up to six months in jail and $1,000 in fines, to a second-degree felony, which can carry a sentence of one to 15 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines. Some Utah drug crimes can also be charged as federal crimes. For example, because marijuana is considered a Class I drug by the federal government, cultivating fewer than 50 plants is a federal felony punishable by up to five years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines.
Beating Utah Drugs Crimes Charges
At Weber Law, we tailor your defense to the specific circumstances of your case. Depending on the charges you face, we may argue that the drugs were in someone else’s possession or that the drugs belonged to someone else. We could call into question police activities surrounding your case. For example, we may claim that you were the victim of an illegal search, that the police informant was unreliable, that the police didn’t have probable cause to search you, or that the police used entrapment. Rest assured that we’ll bring our extensive experience to bear as we develop a solid defense strategy.
