Drug Possession in Tacoma

drug on tableThe majority of drug crimes are based on Violations of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act (VUSCA). Just a small quantity of drugs will get you in trouble – whether it is cocaine, heroin, meth, or something else. A VUCSA charge can result in jail time, fines, drug treatment, probation, loss of rights, seized property, and more. The consequences are even more severe if you are accused of intent to deliver, actual delivery, or manufacturing the drugs.

The actual penalties you face will depend on a variety of different factors.

  • What type of drug and its schedule classification
  • The amount of the drug
  • Whether there was intent to sell it or whether it was for personal consumption
  • What is your felony score (criminal history)
  • Whether you were in possession of a weapon

Whenever you are accused of a drug charge, it is extremely important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. In some instances it might feel like your case is a lost cause but it is important to have an attorney help and try to reach a favorable resolution for you. In some instances, the case may hinge on factors which you are unaware of. An attorney will help you and the State look at the bigger picture and, hopefully, obtain an appropriate resolution.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
