Northwest Indiana Drug Trafficking Defense Attorney
Several different levels of misdemeanors and felonies exist for drug crimes, including:
- Drug sales, or intent to sell indicated by possession
- Drug delivery
- Drug cultivation and manufacturing, whether in a lab or grow house
- Drug trafficking
The level of charge is based on the quantity of drugs involved. These charges may be escalated to an A felony if they occur within 1000 feet of a park or school yard. The most serious grades of these crimes are punishable by prison time. However, several misdemeanor charges may be “stacked” and add up to a D felony possession. The worse your overall record is, the more likely you are to receive a severe sentence in the future.
For this reason, it is important to get the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney to keep your record as clean as possible. Matt LaTulip will begin by conducting a thorough investigation of the circumstances leading to your arrest. If the charges cannot be reduced or dismissed altogether, he will seek alternative placement programs such as drug rehabilitation, community corrections release and diversionary programs.
