SERIOUS NATURE OF FELONY DRUG POSSESSION
The state of Idaho takes drug crimes seriously and will attempt to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. Individuals who have a clean record but are caught with a controlled substance could suddenly find themselves in a very frightening position. Although most drug crimes can be charged as misdemeanors, many are prosecuted as felonies. We have substantial experience handling felony drug crime cases.
You could face felony drug possession charges if you have been arrested for
- unlawful possession of Schedule I or Schedule II drugs.
- possession of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD).
- possession of more than 3 ounces of marijuana.
Felony drug possession crimes are punishable by up to 7 years in prison or up to $15,000, or both. Also, convicted felons will have to live life with a permanent criminal record, making their professional and personal lives more difficult.
UNDERSTANDING THE SEVERITY OF DRUG TRAFFICKING CHARGES
The Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) in Idaho attempts to break the cycle of drugs and violence. OCDETF officials work to make the public safer by reducing the transportation, use, distribution, and trafficking of illegal drugs. Unfortunately, some procedures are conducted illegally, causing individuals to face serious penalties on wrongful charges.
