Drug Possession

State And Federal Drug Crimes Defense

From misdemeanor possession to federal charges, you do not want a drug possession conviction on your criminal record. A conviction can severely damage your future, especially if you are young, if you have a prior drug offense or if you have a professional license. In these cases, even a minor drug crime can have a serious effect on your life. As a Criminal Law Specialist certified by the Minnesota State Bar Association, John J. Leunig is a respected, experienced criminal defense attorney who will fight to keep drug charges from ruining your life. The Law Office of John J. Leunig provides tough, experienced defense against state and federal drug charges. We are aggressive criminal defense attorneys who will fight the prosecution relentlessly. In addition, we work to get first-time and nonviolent offenders into diversionary programs such as drug court, when possible. These programs allow people involved with drugs to get help and probation instead of serving jail or prison terms. You can rely on us to work hard to keep you out of jail. By acting strategically in these cases, we have helped many clients get home arrest and drug counseling rather than jail or prison time.

Don’t Let A Possession Conviction Ruin Your Future

We have a long and successful track record of representing adults and juveniles in Minnesota and Wisconsin who were charged with possession, sale and distribution of all types of controlled substances, including marijuana, methamphetamine, crack, cocaine, MDMA, heroin, hashish, Ecstasy and prescription drugs. The charges you face depend on the type and amount of drugs involved. It doesn’t take much to trigger federal drug charges and a potentially long prison sentence. For example, possessing 100 or more marijuana plants or 100 kilograms or more of marijuana will result in a five-year mandatory minimum prison sentence.

A few issues are common to many drug cases. Constitutional rights violations such as illegal search and seizure are often an element of drug crimes defense. We will carefully review the police report to determine whether the police had probable cause to search you, your car or your house. If there was no probable cause, we can file a motion for the suppression of evidence and perhaps the reduction or dismissal of the charges.

Because of our experience, thorough case preparation and skill as trial attorneys, we are often able to keep our clients from serving jail time and from having a lifelong record as a felon.
