Drug Charges Carry Hefty Penalties

The Illinois Controlled Substances Act made possessing, manufacturing and delivering certain drugs illegal. But the state’s drug laws are continually evolving. Updates in the legislature and case law make it difficult to keep up with “good law” regarding drug charges. Depending on the quality and weight of the controlled substance, convictions for possession can result in fines up to $200,000 and 50 years in prison.

If you are facing an arrest or think you may be subject to an investigation for possession or distribution of controlled substances, it is best to speak with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. In addition to high fines and incarceration, if convicted, you risk losing your job, home and reputation. A criminal record can limit opportunities and your freedom for the rest of your life.

It is vital to your future to speak with a skillful defense attorney who commits to zealously build a robust defense targeting dismissal of charges, alternative sentencing and minimizing penalties when possible. If you are arrested, you may respond to law enforcement’s questions by saying, “I need to call Cierra.” Then call for a free consultation.
