Noblesville Drug Crime Lawyer
Before you settle for a conviction and get labeled a drug offender, work
with an experienced attorney who can help you get the charges dismissed
or reduced. Being accused of a drug crime can be a life-altering event.
Not only can it cost you a significant amount of money, but also damage
your reputation and make it difficult for you to work in the future. In
order to avoid these serious consequences, your attorney will need the
know-how to plead down the charges or possibly get them dismissed altogether.
Know Your Rights
It is important that you know your rights, particularly in a drug crimes
case. You have the right to remain free from any unreasonable search under
Indiana law. If a search is done illegally, your attorney may be able
to get a lesser charge or get the charges dismissed. This depends on the
specifics of your case, but only an experienced
Noblesville criminal defense attorney like ours at Baldwin Kyle & Kamish, P.C. will know the tactics to
get this done successfully.
There are five drug classifications called schedules that are used in Indiana.
The schedules are determined by how addictive the drugs are and can be
used to determine charges and punishment.
The five schedules are:
Schedule I: The most dangerous drugs with high addiction rates and no legitimate medical
use. This includes, but is not limited to, ecstasy and heroine.
Schedule II: These are drugs that have a high risk of abuse and addiction, but may have
a legitimate medical use. This includes cocaine, codeine, PCP, and methamphetamines.
Schedule III: These drugs are less dangerous than the above but do have a risk of abuse.
These include anabolic steroids and ketamine.
Schedule IV: These have a slight risk of abuse and are widely accepted in the medical
field. These include Ambien, Xanax, and Valium.
Schedule V: These are the least severe and have a low risk of addiction and abuse.
These include drugs like Robitussin AC.
The sentences for these crimes vary between six months and three years
in prison and up to $10,000 in fines. Because of the complicated nature
of drug crimes in Indiana, you need to work with an attorney who will
