Centennial Drug Possession Attorney
Defending You Against
Drug Possession Charges
Drug possession is one of the most common criminal offenses in
Centennial, Colorado and throughout the nation. According to statistics provided by the Federal
Bureau of Justice Statistics, 1 in 8 prisoners in the United States who
are serving sentences for
drug crimes are there because they were caught in possession of illegal drugs. This
translates to more than $1 billion in incarceration costs billed to the
American taxpayer. These prisoners are behind bars not because they have
attacked other people or because they stole anything. Instead, they are
serving time after being caught committing a victimless crime. Whether
they are addicts or recreational drug users, they are being punished for
a crime that caused no harm to anyone else.

Possible Sentence for
The penalty that you can face if convicted for illegal possession of drugs
depends on several factors. To begin with, the specific type of drug is
since each of the different drugs is categorized into one of the several
schedules of controlled substances under state law. More addictive and potentially dangerous drugs carry tougher sentences
than less tightly regulated ones. Furthermore, the quantity of drugs is
an important factor. If you were caught with only enough of the drug for
your own personal use, you will likely be charged with a misdemeanor simple
possession offense, whereas larger quantities will normally lead to charges
of possession with intent to distribute, which is a felony offense.
