Minneapolis Drug Defense Lawyer
There are many factors that can lead to case dismissal, but that only happens when a smart, aggressive and experienced drug defense lawyer relentlessly pursues every angle and fights at every stage for your justice. That is what we do.
Minneapolis Drug Crime Attorney
There are many types of drug charges. Some of the most common charges that a drug crime attorney fights involve:
- Crack cocaine
- Prescription drugs
- Drug manufacturing
- Drug sales and distribution
- Money laundering
- Drug-related wire fraud
- Interstate transport of narcotics
Being in possession of any of these drugs can result in very serious charges involving possession, possession with the intent to sell, drug trafficking, drug possession and sale, possession of items used to produce narcotics, and drug crimes involving vulnerable adults or children.
If the charges involve drug manufacturing, that is a very serious crime that can lead to a lengthy prison sentence.

If you are accused of, or are under suspicion for any of these offenses, it is important to speak with a Minneapolis drug crime attorney before saying anything to the authorities, as anything you say can be used as an admission of guilt, even when it is not.
These are serious crimes that require immediate attention. Call The Law Office of John J. Leunig right now at 952-540-6800. Our phones are answered 24/7/365.
Drug Crime Classifications
Drug crimes are classified into five categories. They are first- through fifth-degree drug possession, with first-degree drug possession having the toughest penalties and fifth-degree drug possession having the least harsh penalties. What a person is charged with depends on the amount of the drug and what he or she was doing with the drug when caught.
Penalties For Minneapolis Drug Crime Charges
The penalties in drug-related crimes can be very severe. First degree can result in 30 years in prison and $1 million in fines. Second degree can result in 25 years in prison and up to $500,000 in fines. Third degree can result in up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
