Busted for Drugs Again? What Consequences Lie Ahead

Utah has very strict laws when it comes to controlled substances, and any person arrested for any kind of drug crime could be facing some very serious penalties. People who have prior drug offenses on their criminal record can be especially at risk of consequences that become even more severe.

If you or your loved one has been arrested for any kind of drug crime in Utah, you should not hesitate to contact the Salt Lake City criminal attorneys at InfiniTeam Legal Solutions. Our firm boasts nearly two decades of experience handling drug cases in state and federal courts throughout Utah.

Possession of a controlled substance is certainly one of the most common crimes a person can be charged with, but additional criminal charges could include possession with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, manufacture of controlled substances, or distribution of controlled substances. Make no mistake, each one of these crimes has major penalties for an individual should they be convicted.

While a first or second arrest for drug possession is usually a misdemeanor offense, third and subsequent crimes are felony offenses. A third drug possession arrest is usually a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a fine of up to $5,000 while a fourth or subsequent offense will be a second-degree felony that could lead to up to 15 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000.

People need to understand that an arrest is not the same as a conviction, and alleged offenders could have a number of possible defenses against these criminal charges. For example, drugs that are found through illegal searches or seizures may be inadmissible in court and criminal charges are customarily thrown out.

You will want to contact the Salt Lake City criminal attorneys at InfiniTeam Legal Solutions as soon as possible after your arrest so our firm can quickly conduct our own investigation into the arrest and begin determining all of the defenses that you might have. We may be able to get your criminal charges reduced or dismissed.
