Drug Crimes in Kent

If You're Facing A Drug-Related Criminal Charge Our Kent Drug Attorneys Can Help

drug on tableDrug crimes are treated with the utmost seriousness in Washington, with penalties that can have a far-reaching effect on your life. Law enforcement officials on the Municipal, State, and Federal level often seek maximum sentences for drug crime offenders. The entire Seattle region is a hub of illegal drug trafficking activity because the airport, seaports, and close proximity of the I-5 Corridor running from Mexico to Canada offers a transportation nexus for criminals.

The Kent area sees drugs like heroin, prescription drugs, crystal meth, and cocaine routinely being trafficked and sold. Local Kent police and prosecutors will likely seek maximum sentences for anyone making, selling, or possessing drugs or paraphernalia. If you are charged with a drug crime of any sort, our Kent drug lawyers will defend your rights and fight to minimize the penalties associated with a conviction.

Mandatory penalties for drug crimes will have a direct impact on your life, and could lead to a prison sentence. Violations of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act, also called VUSCA, incur penalties that may be even more severe. You can be charged with this violation for manufacturing drugs, but sometimes a simple possession charge qualifies. Our Kent drug attorneys will help you better understand how Washington law applies to your situation, and explain the punishments associated with a conviction, and how you can take steps to avoid this end result.

Drug crime charges may include possession, sales or delivery, possession with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, drug DUI, or drug manufacturing or importation. The federal schedule of the drug in question will also be taken into consideration, as will the amount of the drug in your possession when you were arrested.

If you already have a criminal record, the penalties can be even more severe. If it's your first offense, the court may allow you to enter a diversion program, but if you have prior drug convictions, the prosecutor may seek to punish you to the fullest extent of the law.
