Wellton Drug Crimes
Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Wellton
Arizona’s location on the border causes it to be an area of heavy drug trafficking and drug crimes. As such, it is a primary objective of the local law enforcement to catch and prosecute drug offenders, both to penalize criminals and to discourage future criminal activity. If you have been charged with a drug crime, unfortunately this means that you are at an increased risk for maximum sentencing if you do not retain a highly trained Wellton criminal defense lawyer. There are a number of potential defenses for every case. Perhaps you were unlawfully searched at an immigration checkpoint. Perhaps your rights were not read to you, or perhaps there is insufficient evidence to prove a case against you.
Do not give in to despair; there is hope! Facing Drug Charges in Wellton?
The prosecution is tough on many drug crimes, although a trafficking, manufacturing or distribution charge will inherently carry a higher potential sentence than simple possession. Regardless of the charges against you, you need aggressive legal representation. Your rights and future are in jeopardy, and you could wind up spending years in prison if you do not contact an attorney as soon as possible.
