Did you know that even carrying just a single ecstasy pill can be a felony? Or that you can still be charged with felony possession even if someone else admitted to owning the drugs? Or that having over an ounce of marijuana can also still be charged as a felony?
Drug crimes range from misdemeanor possession to high level trafficking, with a wide variety of possible sentences. Nevada takes a harsh line with drug offenses; frequently, felony drug charges carry sentences similar to attempted murder and sexual assault. Sometimes, drug charges can even carry a sentence of life in prison.
Most often, these cases come down to issues with Fourth Amendment illegal search and seizure, and our firm has extensive experience in fighting illegal search cases. If you or someone you know has been charged with a drug crime, contact Nevada Defense Group right away to discuss the case.
