Facing Drug Crime Charges?

Though drug crime charges can sound similar, the differences can generally be found in the amount and type of the drug in question. For example, "possession with intent to distribute" implies that the accused allegedly had a more substantial amount of the drug in his or her possession, suggesting that the drug was intended to be sold. Your charges will increase in severity if you had a large amount of a controlled substance near a school.

Our team represents drug crimes of all kinds, including:

  • Possession of paraphernalia
  • Manufacturing or cultivating
  • Trafficking
  • Selling to a minor
  • General possession

Misdemeanor Vs. Felony Drug Crimes

Utah classifies general intoxication charges as misdemeanors; however, a driving-related drug or alcohol crime can shift the offense to a felony. Similarly, a drug crime involving a high volume of a controlled substance will also be reviewed as a felony case. In these situations, consult with our team to make sure you are adequately defended.
