drug on tableDrug crimes are some of the most common crimes in the US, Washington, and Bellevue. State, Municipal, and Federal law enforcement officials expend significant resources in the pursuit of people who commit various drug crimes. The Seattle region is a hub of drug trafficking because of its proximity to the airport, seaports, and the I-5 Corridor running from Mexico to Canada where drugs are routinely trafficked.

Many varieties of drugs circulate through the Bellevue and Seattle area, including crystal meth, heroin, crack, cocaine, and prescription drugs. Local law enforcement agents will prosecute people who sell or possess these controlled substances, often to the fullest extent of the law. If you've been charged with a drug-related crime in Washington, our Bellevue drug lawyers will pursue legal means to reduce the repercussions of a conviction.

If you're convicted of a drug crime, severe penalties will likely have a dramatic impact on the your life, and the lives of your family members. If your convicted of violating the Uniform Controlled Substances Act, also called VUSCA, the punishments could be even more harsh. A violation of VUSCA means that you are accused of manufacturing drugs, or possibly just possessing them. Our Bellevue drug attorneys will help you understand how your situation applies to the law, discuss potential lines of defense, and outline the penalties a conviction would incur.

Punishment for drug crime convictions are determined by the Washington court, which will consider specific details pertaining to your crime to determine the severity of the penalties. The federal schedule of the drug in question will also be taken into account, as will the quantity in your possession. if you were holding large amounts of a drug when arrested, the prosecutor may interpret this an intent to distribute or sell.

If you have a criminal record, this could influence how your case is prosecuted. The court may allow you to enter a diversion program or accept a first-time waiver if it's your first drug crime arrest, but If you have previous convictions, you will likely face an unrelenting prosecution.
