Aggressive Criminal Defense Against All Federal, State Or Municipal Drug Charges
If the police arrest you for drug possession or any drug crime, you only have one chance to get your defense right. The knowledge and skill of your legal counsel can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case.
The defense lawyer at the Stone Law Office reviews the actions of arresting officers and investigators to determine whether there was an illegal search or investigators overstepped in using informants against you. Attorney Gary D. Stone is also prepared to defend you if the government initiates a civil forfeiture action and attempts to seize any of your assets or personal property.
Mr. Stone will defend you against a wide range of drug offenses, including:
- Drug possession
- Drug trafficking
- Drug sale
- Drug distribution
- Drug conspiracy
- Marijuana charges
- Federal drug charges
Understanding Drug Charges And Penalties
In Kansas, misdemeanor drug offenses involving marijuana and low-level drug possession cases are often punishable by probation in lieu of jail, whereas possession of any controlled substance – such as cocaine, meth, ecstasy and legal narcotics without prescriptions – is a felony offense. Depending on the nature of the offense, prior convictions and other factors trigger sentencing guidelines that provide for prison terms ranging from one year to life imprisonment.
Kansas criminal defense attorney Stone will thoroughly investigate your drug case to determine whether the arresting officer respected your constitutional rights. Did the officer have a valid reason to stop your vehicle or search you for drugs? Did the officer illegally seize property or detain you? If the police violated your rights, Mr. Stone will do everything in his power to suppress the resulting evidence in court.
