Choose a Board-Certified Team to Defend You

Your future could be hanging in the balance when you’ve been accused of a serious drug crime. Don’t risk it to an inexperienced or inattentive law firm. Go with The Criminal Defense Team, which is trusted by criminal defendants across the state.

We have 3 Board-Certified Criminal Law Specialists* on our team. In all of Indiana, there are currently only 6 such specialists.

Most attorneys who attempt this exam do not pass, but 5 of our team did.


Commonly Charged Drug Crimes

Indiana has a long list of different drug charges that it can file against a criminal defendant. You can come to The Criminal Defense Team for help protecting your rights against any of them. We have decades of combined legal experience with an intentional focus on hard-fought criminal defense cases, such as many of the drug crime cases we have worked on in the past.

Let us defend your rights against these criminal violations and more:

  • Possession: If you own, hold, or control an illegal narcotic, then you can be charged with drug possession, which is often a misdemeanor.
  • Distribution: If you give or sell an illegal narcotic to another party, then you can be charged with drug distribution. Possessing an amount or number of drugs considered to be “too many” for personal use can also result in an intent to distribute charge.
  • Manufacturing: If you create or have the means to create illegal narcotics in your possession or control, then you can be charged with drug manufacturing, which is often a felony.
  • Marijuana charges: Indiana considers it a misdemeanor if you possess any amount of recreational marijuana with a THC content level of 0.3% or greater. In other words, it is still illegal to use recreational marijuana in Indiana.


Penalties for Drug Crime Convictions

Since the ‘80s, prosecutors have been adamant about securing a conviction for every drug crime charge that reaches their office. Even minor crimes like first-time drug possession in small amounts are often pursued aggressively and hit with the most criminal penalties possible if a conviction is secured. In fact, many jails and prisons across the country are populated mostly by drug crime offenders.

Do not let your case get steamrolled by the prosecution and hope that you will get a light sentence. Take charge of the situation and defend yourself from harsh penalties by teaming up with our experienced Noblesville drug attorneys.

If you are convicted of a drug crime in Indiana, then you will likely be penalized by:

  • Incarceration: If you are convicted of a misdemeanor drug crime, then you could be sentenced to up to 180 days in jail. Drug crime felony convictions can include up to 40 years in prison, depending on the details of the conviction.
  • Fines: If you are convicted of a misdemeanor drug crime, then you could be ordered to pay fines to the state up to $1,000. A felony conviction can have fines of up to $10,000. You will also have to pay other miscellaneous fees not directly associated with sentencing requirements.


What is the DEA Drug Schedule?

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has sorted all known narcotics into a schedule. The top of the schedule (I) includes what the DEA considers to be the most dangerous, addictive, or medically-unusable substances. The bottom of the schedule (V) is considered by the DEA to be the least dangerous or addictive, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t face harsh charges for possessing schedule V substances.
