Possession of Controlled Substances Could Mean Jail time

The Penalties for Possession of a Controlled Substance including Cocaine, Crack, heroin, and other analogues are incredibly severe. You face huge fines or several years in prison. With all you have to lose, you need an aggressive and competent drug crime defense lawyer. You need Schmierlaw if you are charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Penalties for Possession of Controlled Substances

Possession of any controlled substance is a serious crime and prosecutors are determined to exact the maximum penalties if you are convicted. Just the mere possession of less than 25 grams of cocaine or crack could mean 4 years in prison and up to $25K in fines. And as the amount you possess increases, the penalties are even greater. Plus, if there is a major amount of drugs, count on the Feds getting involved which will only add to your problems. And if you have a gun nearby, well it's even worse.

In addition to the sanctions imposed by the Court and even if you don't go to jail, the Secretary of State will suspend your license for a year with a minimum 30 days hard suspension with the balance a restricted license. And if you have a CDL, it will be suspended, so you won't work driving a commercial vehicle for a year.

The Courts take Controlled Substance Crimes Seriously, So Does Schmierlaw

If you are charged with possession of any controlled substance, you need experienced and aggressive drug crime defense
Schmierlaw will aggressively investigate all the events leading up to your arrest. We will interview the witnesses involved, look closely at the police report to determine whether your rights were violated, and negotiate, if necessary, a possible deal with the Prosecutor. Schmierlaw will examine every aspect of your defense to get the charges dismissed, reduced, or to minimize the consequences of a conviction.

First Time Offenders May Be Eligible for "7411" or Diversion so You a Conviction Will Not Appear on Your Record
If you are convicted of Possession of a Controlled Substance, you may be eligible for MCL 333.7411 which, if you plead guilty and successfully complete the terms of probation, the conviction will not appear on your record. In addition, your driver's license will not be suspended as required under the law because the conviction will not be reported to the Secretary of State.
