A drug charge of any kind is not above reproach. Police make mistakes, and Steve Graham can bring these to light on your behalf. You deserve seasoned defense for your alleged drug crime which Steve Graham can provide. He has been fighting criminal charges for almost 20 years and puts this experience to work with every case he handles.

Drug Trafficking?

Trafficking charges are especially serious because you can incur both state and federal penalties with a conviction when you are charged with manufacturing, possessing, or delivery of illegal substances. When experienced prosecutors are involved, you need a high-quality Spokane drug crimes lawyer with prosecutorial experience to preserve your freedom.

One tested means of defending those charged is by asserting they had no knowledge of the possession or delivery of the drug. In addition, if the drugs found were collected in such a way that your rights were violated, any evidence seized can be suppressed and not used by the prosecution. Additionally, under the "fruit of the poisonous tree rule" any evidence that derives from the tainted evidence is also thrown out of court. The attorneys at the Law Office of Steve Graham have spent their careers in studying the constitutional and technical rules that apply to search and seizure.

Federal law bans any person from manufacturing, distributing, or possessing a controlled substance in any quantity. A defendant who is convicted of such an offense is subject to sentencing based on the quantity of the controlled substance. The precise details about sentences and monetary penalties for controlled substances are found in the U.S.C. In general terms, applicable penalties apply as follows:

  • 10 years to life for 1 kilogram of heroin, 5 kilograms of cocaine, or 1000 kilograms of marijuana

  • 5 to 40 years in prison for 100 grams of heroin, or 500 grams of cocaine

  • Maximum 5 years for 50 kilograms of marijuana

The length of incarceration increases for larger amounts of controlled substances. There are also penalty enhancements if injury results or for prior convictions including state convictions. In addition, sentencing enhancements can apply for convictions for drug trafficking when the defendant is considered the leader or if a gun is involved.
