Provo Utah Felony Drug Lawyer | Meth Cocaine Heroin Possession
Utah Felony Drug Possession Attorneys
Provo Criminal Defense regularly defends drug cases in the state of Utah and is the first place you should contact if you or someone you know is facing drug charges. Drug charges span a vast area of law, as do the penalties. Drug possession charges will vary on a variety of factors depending on the quantity of drugs, the type of drug, any prior offenses, and other aggravating factors such as the involvement of minors. The possession of certain drugs like meth, cocaine, and heroin will automatically result in felony charges. More than a pound of marijuana will also result in felony charges. Utah law is tough on drugs including methamphetamines, cocaine, marijuana, and a rising number of charges involve illegal possession of legal prescription drugs.
We provide the dedicated and diligent advocacy that you will need to ensure the best results possible. Utah prosecutors are aggressive in fighting drug crimes and an unprepared defendant can be quickly overwhelmed and very possibly over-punished. Don’t let this happen to you. You and your family have too much on the line.
Felony Marijuana Charges
Perhaps the most common drug involved in drug crimes is Marijuana. Possession of over a pound of marijuana is a 3rd degree felony in the state of Utah and is punishable by up to 5 years of incarceration and fines of up to $5,000. Possession of over 100 pounds becomes a 2nd degree felony and penalties can rise to 15 years and $10,000. Utah also recognizes tax stamps on Marijuana, subjecting possessors to additional tax penalties, and the state enforces driver’s license suspensions for all Marijuana convictions. If this is not the first time you’ve been charged with possession, the crime and penalty is elevated further.
