South Bend Attorneys for Drug Crimes
Possession, Delivery and Manufacturing of Illegal Drugs are some of the most common charges in our legal system. As the law currently stands in Indiana, drug charges can be broken into two categories: marijuana and controlled substances. If you’re facing drug charges, contact Wilson & Kinsman LLC to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
Depending upon the amount involved and your criminal history (if any), possession of marijuana can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor. Delivery or manufacturing of marijuana is a felony offense in Indiana, but it can sometimes be reduced to a misdemeanor at sentencing.
In either situation, a conviction for possession of marijuana can result in your driver’s license getting suspended. Many people believe that a driver’s license suspension is always required, but that’s not true. Contact Wilson & Kinsman LLC if you want to find out how to avoid getting a license suspension altogether.
In some cases, it is possible to avoid a conviction for possession of marijuana entirely. In Elkhart County, the State of Indiana often objects to this happening. At Wilson & Kinsman LLC, we can help you keep your record clean. Call today to schedule your personalized case evaluation.
The term controlled substances can include crack cocaine, methamphetamine, heroine, or even prescription drugs. If you’re facing a drug charge, having a small quantity of even as little as 3 grams of controlled substances can cause an enhancement of your charges. In most cases, the baggie or container holding the alleged drug is weighed along with the substance. Call our office to find out what can be done if this happens in your situation.
Dealing and manufacturing of controlled substances are very serious crimes, often resulting in as much as 50 years in jail. In these cases, you need the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect you. Call us today to learn your rights before you talk to the police!
There has also been a lot of discussion about “meth labs” in recent news, which brings to mind sophisticated operations. In truth, however, these are often no more than a couple of two liter bottles and some common everyday items like batteries and match books. Yet even these simple elements can lead to very serious criminal charges with decades of possible jail time. You need an experienced lawyer on your side when facing these charges. At Wilson & Kinsman LLC, we’re here for you. Contact our office and schedule your personalized case evaluation today.
