Get the Best Defense with Spodek Law Group

If you reside in Nassau County and are facing a drug-related crime, you need a reliable and experienced drug crime lawyer by your side to help you get the best outcome in your case. At Spodek Law Group, our dedicated team of attorneys, led by Attorney Todd Spodek, has been defending clients facing serious drug charges for over 25 years. We understand that facing drug charges can be daunting and overwhelming, which is why we strive to provide you with the best legal representation possible.

Types of Drug Crimes in New York

New York State recognizes several drug crimes, including criminal marijuana possession, criminal sale of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, drug trafficking and distribution, and unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, among others. Depending on the type of drug, where it was found, and the quantity you held, each crime carries a potential for fines, penalties, and incarceration.
Typically, possession crimes result in less severe penalties than distribution or trafficking crimes, but it is not unusual for those who have been charged with distribution or trafficking to also be charged with possession.

The Controlled Substances Act defines drugs and controlled substances. Schedule I drugs are considered to be the most dangerous and generally carry the most severe penalties. A non-comprehensive list of drugs defined in the schedules includes heroin, MDMA, PCP, Psilocybin, cocaine, OxyContin, LSD, Ritalin, Methamphetamine, anabolic steroids, raw opium, and more.

Possible Defenses for Possession Charge

If you have been charged with possessing a drug or another controlled substance, your Spodek Law Group drug crime lawyer will consider the facts of the case and help you decide which defenses might be the most appropriate for your circumstances.
To stand in court, prosecutors must prove four elements of a possession case: the defendant possessed the substance, the substance was on the schedules for controlled substances, the defendant knowingly possessed the substance, and possession of the substance was not lawful. Common defenses used in possession cases include a lack of knowledge, lawful possession, and infancy.

Common Defenses for Distribution or Trafficking Charges

Distribution and trafficking of controlled substances are more serious than possession charges, and it can be harder for a drug crime lawyer to oppose distribution and trafficking charges. However, there are five common defenses used in distribution and trafficking charges.
Unlawful search and seizure, missing drugs, entrapment, controlled substance lab analysis, and mere possession can be used as defenses. An attorney may argue that the drugs were in possession only, and the defendant did not intend to distribute or sell them to others. They may also argue that the value of the drugs found did not total $75,000 or more.

Conviction of a drug possession charge can result in a Class A misdemeanor with up to a year in jail or three years of probation, and a fine of up to $1,000. A drug trafficking charge carries a minimum imprisonment sentence of 15 years and may result in a life sentence. In addition to prison time, a convicted individual can receive a fine of up to $100,000.
