Drug Crimes Lawyer in Ann Arbor

Protecting Your Rights for a Brighter Future

Whether you are facing a minor possession charge or a major trafficking charge, Susan Longsworth, PLC can help. "Drug crime" is a category of offenses that may include the sale, cultivation, distribution, or manufacture of any illegal drug or controlled substances. If you have been arrested for any type of drug crime or even suspect you may be under investigation, it is in your best interest to hire a skilled Ann Arbor drug crime attorney.

As a former prosecutor, I have handled numerous drug crime cases from both sides of the courtroom. Now that I defend rather than prosecute these kinds of cases, I know what to expect from the opposition and can craft an effective defense on your behalf.

Consequences of a Drug Crime Conviction

Drug crimes can be classified as felonies or misdemeanors. A misdemeanor is any offense that carries a maximum of one year in jail as a punishment. Felony drug crimes can carry up to life in prison. With each individual crime, the circumstances vary, and so do the potential penalties. According to the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), drugs fall into five categories based on how potentially dangerous or addictive they are. The severity of a punishment for a drug crime conviction depends on the schedule of the drug involved.

When charged with delivery or manufacture, you could face:

  • Heroin or cocaine (under 50 grams), ecstasy, or meth: Up to 20 years and $25,000
  • Marijuana (up to 44kg): Up to 7 years and $500,000

When charged with possession, you could face:

  • Ecstasy or meth: Up to 10 years and $15,000
  • Heroin or cocaine (under 25 grams): Up to 4 years and $25,000
  • Marijuana: Up to 1 year and $2,000
