Ecstasy possession is a serious crime, and like many other illicit narcotics, ecstasy is strictly prohibited by Michigan law. Ecstasy is a Schedule 1 drug, with no accepted medical use and a high potential for addiction. A Michigan criminal defense lawyer is vital to your freedom and your future, and will be able to protect you from harsh criminal punishment.
Ecstasy ("X", "E", "MDMA") is a dangerous drug, which was at one time used in psychotherapy. In 1985, ecstasy was made illegal, but the drug has continued to be popular. Ecstasy is the fourth most popular drug in the country, and authorities are cracking down on users, manufacturers, and distributors. A popular party drug, ecstasy use is known to cause increased awareness, energy, and memory loss. Ecstasy can be detected in the body for a long time, through blood, hair, saliva, sweat and other sources. Ecstasy use can be detected by drug tests, and it is of extreme importance that you contact an attorney if you are on probation and could fail a Michigan drug test. Our lawyers will work with you no matter what stage of your ecstasy crime case you are dealing with. Grabel & Associates works to protect clients from damaging criminal penalties.
Schedule 1 illegal drug possession results in severe criminal punishment, and Michigan law is tough on drug crime offenders. Ecstasy use is a misdemeanor charge, and could result in a jail sentence of up to one year and a fine of up to $2,000. Possession of ecstasy, however, is a felony charge, and could result in a jail sentence of up to 10 years along with significant fines, according to the Michigan Penal Code (333.7403).
This is not the minimum sentence though, as certain factors can result in an amplified sentence that will put you in jail for even longer. Ecstasy possession near a school, park, church or business could result in a longer jail term or harsher fine, as could possession with one or more previous convictions for drug-related crimes. Police and prosecutors will also look for every possible way to turn your possession charge into accusations of possession with intent to sell or deliver, especially if your case involves larger quantities of ecstasy. Our criminal defense lawyers know how to protect you from aggressive police and prosecutors, and will fight to ensure your rights are upheld.
Your driving privileges could also be revoked because of a drug crime charge, and a first-rate Michigan defense lawyer can help ensure you do not suffer from this additional punishment. Furthermore, if your driver's license has already been revoked, we can look at possible ways to earn back your driving privileges.
