Charged With a Drug Crime?

Possession, Cultivation & Distribution Charges in Polk County

Our state's laws are tough on drug crime offenders, and if you have been arrested, it is in your best interests to contact an attorney at Ayo and Iken, PLC as early as possible in the criminal process. We are former prosecutors with 35 years of combined experience, and will stand by you as your case progresses, advising you of your rights and working to help you avoid the life-changing consequences of a conviction. Speaking with investigators or the police is almost certain to make the situation worse-call us or visit our office today for a confidential consultation and to allow us to begin work on your case.

At Ayo & Iken PLC we will investigate the circumstances of your arrest to determine whether the police had probable cause to investigate you. If there is evidence that your Constitutional rights were violated in the investigation, we may be able to have the case dismissed without a trial. Even if the evidence is against you and it is not possible to avoid a conviction, we can help you pursue alternative sentencing such as a drug treatment program, counseling or probation.

Consequences of a Drug Crime Arrest

If you fail to take decisive action now to defend your case, there is a high likelihood that you will be convicted. The penalties for a drug related offense vary according to the specific crime, such as possession, cultivation, possession with intent to distribute or prescription fraud. One factor that will influence the sentence you would receive is the quantity of drugs involved: for example, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor, punishable by a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail, while more than 20 grams is punishable as a felony, with a five-year prison sentence and $5,000 in fines. State law also categorizes drugs according to their addictive properties and whether they have any known medical use, so whether you were arrested with marijuana, cocaine, heroin, LSD, methamphetamine or prescription drugs may also have an effect on your sentence. Contact our Polk County firm today to discuss the charges and learn more about how we can fight to prevent a conviction in your case .
