Methamphetamine Drug Crimes
Speak with an Atlanta Drug Crime Attorney
Being charged with a crime related to methamphetamine possession can have some severe, life-altering consequences. Should your case be brought to trial, you deserve to have the facts of the case fairly presented and your rights protected. Having a defense attorney is an essential step in the entire litigation process, especially if you are facing drug crime charges.
What should I do if I was arrested?
Methamphetamine possession does not necessarily mean that a police officer found the drug somewhere on you. In fact, if they find a trace of methamphetamine in your home, your vehicle, or any item or location that belongs to you, they may find reason to arrest you.
Under the law, methamphetamine is considered a felony offense because it is regarded as one of the most dangerous and addictive of substances.
Here is an example of the penalties for methamphetamine possession:
- 1st offense:
- 2 to 15 years imprisonment
- 2nd offense or more:
- Up to 30 years imprisonment
Penalties can be enhanced if investigators have reason to believe that the possession was used for the purposes of selling, trafficking, or distribute the drugs to other parties.
