Committed to Excellence
Grand Rapids Drug Charge Attorney
If you have been charged with a drug crime in Michigan, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. Michigan courts impose harsh penalties for crimes involving drugs, including the possession, possession with intent, trafficking, manufacturing, and transportation of controlled substances. At Tanis Schultz, PLLC we understand the importance of keeping you out of jail and preventing your record from being tarnished.
In Michigan, it is unlawful to knowingly possess or use illegal drugs. If you are found to be under the influence of illegal drugs or even have these drugs near you, you could be charged with felony drug possession. The penalties for drug possession depend on the type of substances involved, an individual’s prior criminal history, the amount of drugs possessed. Charges may be enhanced for those who possess drugs with the intent to sell them. Whether one actually had plans to sell the drugs or not, they can be charged with intent to sell if the volume of the drugs possessed exceeds the statutory threshold amounts.
If you possess a Schedule I or Schedule II drug, such as cocaine, heroin, LSD or methamphetamines can lead to serious penalties. Possession of most Schedule I or 2 substances can result in up to 4 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000 for an amount under 25 grams, with penalties as serious as lifetime in prison and a fine of $1,000,000 for amounts over 1 kg.
