Marijuana or Methamphetamines Manufacturing Charges
Manufacturing is illegal and a conviction allows for harsh penalties to be imposed upon you. The crimes of manufacturing, possession and distribution or intent to distribute are all closely related. If you have been charged with drug manufacturing of marijuana or methamphetamines, you could be facing up to 5 years in jail and/or $5,000 in fines on the first offense, if your criminal record is clean. Some substances, including cocaine, heroin or other drugs will lead to up to 15 years of incarceration and/or $25,000 for a first offense.
Our Lexington criminal defense lawyer will analyze your situation, and inform you of what could be done to defend you, or to reduce the charges or penalties. Manufacturing charges can be related to the manufacture and distribution of meth, but also are filed against those who are believed to have been growing marijuana in a residence or in a "grow house." The penalties imposed will also reflect the quantity of the substance, and defendants who are believed to be involved in large scale drug manufacturing operations will be subject to longer sentences in a conviction.
You may have been wrongfully identified by police as being involved, were at the wrong place at the wrong time, or are completely innocent of the charges. You could be a victim of a rights violation in search and seizure, or arrested due to false reports. A charge related to meth or marijuana manufacturing is very, very serious, and the penalties imposed can be life-changing. It is imperative that you find a Lexington criminal defense attorney to protect you throughout the entire process, through to resolution. Our criminal defense team is highly qualified, and we are prepared to analyze your situation and advise you about your options.
