Olathe Drug Possession Lawyer
Have You Been Charged with Drug Possession in Johnson County?
Although drug possession is not as serious of a crime as something along
the lines of trafficking, it by no means is something you should take
lightly or shrug off. A successful conviction of this type of crime can
lead to detrimental ramifications throughout many different parts of your
life. For example, for a first offense of
marijuana possession, you will be faced with a
misdemeanor drug crime that could lead to up to a year in jail and $2,500 in fines. For subsequent
offenses, you could have anywhere from 10 to 42 months incarcerated and
upwards of $100,000 in fines.
Possession, however, does not relate directly to marijuana, and can include
other drugs (for example,
methamphetamines). Severity of the punishments are directly correlated to the potential
for abuse that the law feels that the drug has, and also fluctuate with
the amount of substance found on their person, and previous convictions
of similar crimes. There are several other factors that are taken into
consideration, including distance to certain areas (such as day cares
and places of education), intent to sell and possession of other drug
