Charges for Drug Crimes Can be Extensive in Arizona

The charges that might emerge due to drug crimes can be substantial, with even a first-time narcotic drug charge holding the potential of up to three years of imprisonment. While you might think that the possession of just drug paraphernalia is not a major charge, it is in fact a class 6 felony and could lead to up to 1.5 years in prison. The transportation of drugs in Arizona can be charged as a class 2, 3, or 6 felony, and could lead to maximum prison sentences ranging from 1.5 to 10 years.

Arizona has an aggressive narcotics enforcement program put in place by the Arizona DPS Criminal Investigation Division. Drug crimes in the state are aggressively targeted by law enforcement through complex investigations of groups and individuals who use, manufacture, sell, or distribute controlled substances. By the time you face a charge, there could be significant evidence against you, but all of that evidence must meet the legal standards that are relevant to it, something your attorney covers for you.

Drug Crime Charges Demand an Aggressive Defense
