Methamphetamine Convictions and Penalties

If you are found guilty of a first possession methamphetamine charge, the penalties include a prison sentence of 2 to 15 years and the added problem of expensive fines. For a second or subsequent offense the prison term escalates to between 5 to 30 years. Both convictions are felonies which become part of your permanent criminal record. You can be sentenced even more heavily if your charges are related to sales, manufacturing, possession with intent to distribute or trafficking.

There are multiple methods employed by the legal team to successfully defend methamphetamine cases. The U.S. Constitution protects you against unreasonable search and seizure by law enforcement. The police must have probable cause or a legal warrant to search your person, home and other property. When an attorney from the firm demonstrates that your rights have been violated, it can lead to a full dismissal of the charges against you.

The burden of proof lies squarely with the prosecutor in a criminal case. He or she must show, beyond reasonable doubt, that you are guilty of a crime. Effective questioning and cross examination by a criminal lawyer from the firm can raise serious questions as to whether the drugs were actually yours or that you even knew of their existence.
