Drug related penalties under Oregon law can be punished very harshly and very unfairly, especially marijuana cases. Fortunately, there are many ways to defend drug cases and there are many ways to negotiate these cases as well. You can easily find yourself facing a prison sentence without even being a drug dealer. If you are caught with the following amounts or more of the below listed drugs, your case will be a presumptive prison case:

  • Marijuana – 5.29 ounces
  • Cocaine – 0.35 ounces
  • Methamphetamine – 0.35 ounces
  • Heroin – 0.17 ounces
  • Psilocybin or psilocin mushrooms – 2.11 ounces
  • Ecstasy – 0.17 ounces

In the process of finding drugs or evidence of drugs the police frequently violate peoples’ rights. If an officer has violated your rights against illegal search or seizure of your person or property then this evidence can be thrown out at trial. You need an attorney that knows what to look for when examining your case. I have significant experience and extensive knowledge in defending drug cases. Throughout my career I have represented hundreds of people charged with drug crimes. It is important that you get an experienced lawyer working on your side immediately.

A drug crime can result in jail or prison time, substantial fines, forfeiture of real or personal property, deportation, and loss of driving privileges. If you have been charged with a drug crime you should contact me immediately for a free consultation.
