Drug Crime

GET THE DEFENSE YOU NEED FOR YOUR CHARGES BY THE FORMER CHIEF DEPUTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY!

The state of Nevada is very strict when it comes to controlled substances. These drugs include, but are not limited to:

  • marijuana
  • cocaine
  • heroin
  • methamphetamine

These substances are listed under the state and federal Schedules for controlled substances, and any illegal act involving them may be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. This depends on the nature of the drug and the amount in question.

Some of the most common drug crimes in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas include:

  • Possession
  • Possession with Intent to Distribute
  • Sales
  • Trafficking

If you are charged with any of these or other drug crimes, you could face years-or even decades-in prison, as well as an astronomical fine. You will forever have a mark on your record and will find it difficult to succeed in a career due to your conviction. Your best decision after being arrested for a drug crime would be to hire a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.

 

DRUG DEFENSES WITH GREGORY D. KNAPP, ESQ.

When you come to my firm for help, there are a number of effective defense strategies that I may implement on your behalf. First, I may be able to prove that the police conducted an unlawful search and seizure. According to the 4th Amendment, police may search your belongings only with a warrant or your consent. If they did not have either of those, then they are not permitted to submit their findings as evidence.

Another defense for your case may be that the drugs belonged to another person. If another person had control over or access to the area in which the drugs were found, then ownership can be questioned. The prosecution may not be able to prove that the drugs belonged to you and not another person who had access to the drugs.

If police officers entrapped you into taking the drugs or passing them on to someone else, then I may be able to get your case dismissed. It is illegal for government officials to pressure individuals into committing a crime that they might not have otherwise committed. Seek out my firm if you want further information about the defenses that can be applied to your case!
