Scottsdale Drug Crime Lawyer

Criminal Attorney for Drug Charges in Scottsdale

In Scottsdale, Arizona many state and federal laws make it illegal to possess or distribute controlled substances such as marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin. Many of these laws also make it illegal to have any chemicals used to cultivate and manufacture drugs in your possession, including paraphernalia and items relating to drug use. Many drug charges are also federal crimes, in which the DEA and other government organizations can combine resources to prosecute you. It takes an experienced criminal defense attorney with a license to practice in both Arizona state and federal courts to mobilize a compelling defense in drug cases.

  • Possession (Marijuana, Cocaine, Crack Cocaine, Crystal Meth, Prescription Drugs, Ecstasy, LSD, and Heroin)

Scottsdale, Arizona Drug Offenses: Drug Possession Charges and Penalties

The severity of drug crime charges depends largely on the amount of the drug, presumed purpose of the drug possession, and the type or "schedule" of the controlled substance. The most serious drug crimes charges involve producing, manufacturing, distributing, or selling illegal substances. Prosecutors can attempt to prove your intent to sell or distribute a controlled substance based on the amount found in your possession, regardless of whether or not you were actually selling drug in question.

Most of these crimes are classified as felonies, and if convicted all can carry lengthy prison sentences and hefty fines. In Arizona, our proximity to the Mexican border means that drug enforcement officers and state and federal prosecutors are out to prosecute your case to the fullest extent of the law and maximize your penalties. As a former prosecutor for the Major Crimes Division of the Maricopa County Attorney's office, Joshua S. Davidson provides experience and insight many other drug crime and criminal defense lawyers might not have.
