Call 612-217-0077 to consult with an attorney to discuss your case today.
While many people see drug use as a "victimless crime," the State and Federal governments do not. If you are facing drug charges it is important to contact an attorney who can help you with your case. At Ascheman & Smithwe deal with all areas related to drug offenses. We can help you understand the charges, and the legal system.
Many people view drug crimes as minor offenses due to the popularity of drugs, leading them to underestimate the seriousness of drug charges. But don’t be fooled. The "War on Drugs" is real, and the government is working hard to lock people up for these offenses. Possession of drugs can quickly increase to felony level charges. Minnesota and Wisconsin have strict sentencing guidelines – including prison time for drug trafficking, drug possession, drug distribution and drug manufacturing.
Most drug crimes can be classified into the following:
- First degree controlled substance abuse
- Second degree controlled substance abuse
- Third degree controlled substance abuse
- Fourth degree controlled substance abuse
- Fifth degree controlled substance abuse
- Importing controlled substance
- Prescription fraud
- Possession and sale of prescription drugs
- Drug manufacturing, trafficking and transportation
And if you are facing drug charges and the federal government is involved, the matter is very serious. Even if the charges are originally handled by your state, they can ultimately be handed to federal authorities.
If you or someone you know are facing criminal charges, don’t wait any longer. Call us today at 612-217-0077 to speak to a drug crimes defense lawyer for a free, initial case consultation. You’ll be glad you did.
