Cultivation Lawyer in Yuma
Cultivating a marijuana patch or using a “grow house” has become more popular in Arizona as the government’s war on drugs makes importation from another state or across the border more difficult. If arrested an individual may face charges of:
- Intent to distribute
- Intent to sell
Each of these charges carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of $150,000, and possible forfeiture of property including bank accounts, home and more. A Yuma cultivation lawyer with the firm can look into all aspects of your arrest to locate violations of your constitutional rights, such as illegal search and seizure, denial of your right to an attorney, and more, in order to get the charges against you dropped or reduced.
If the property where the cultivation took place is owned by another, no matter how innocent of any knowledge, the property can be seized and may be lost forever to the owner. Quick action needs to be taken by a qualified criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights. With decades of experience in fighting forfeiture of property and marijuana-related crimes, we will do everything legally possible to achieve the best outcome in your case.
