Meth is a Schedule 2 illegal substance in Michigan, and prosecutors are trying to crack down on the growing population of meth dealers and users. It is important to curb the growing popularity of this dangerous drug, but also to uphold the rights of those accused of drug crimes. We work to achieve the most beneficial result, so that no Michigan citizen is wrongly accused of methamphetamine possession with intent, or forced into a harsh, damaging, sentence when better options are available.
Methamphetamines, known as “crystal meth,” “ice,” “chalk,” or “crank” are illegal without prescription and can have dangerous side-effects. Although meth initially produces feelings of euphoria and energy, the drug user may also experience hallucinations, convulsions, and even heart attack. Additionally, meth users build up a tolerance to the drug and will eventually require stronger, deadlier doses of the drug.
Meth is cooked in dangerous chemical labs, either right here in America or brought in through foreign drug trafficking. Police and prosecutors are working to implement serious restrictions on certain medications in order to make methamphetamine ingredients harder to obtain. More methamphetamine distributors are being put in jail, but aggressive prosecutors could forget to thoroughly examine the details of every drug crime case to make sure the wrong people aren’t put behind bars. Our defense firm works with those accused of meth possession with intent to sell, to expose the details of the case and fight for a just result.
Using methamphetamines or crystal meth is a misdemeanor charge in Michigan, carrying a possible sentence of up to one year and a potential fine of $2,000. Methamphetamine possession is a felony charge with a possible penalty of 10 years in jail and a $15,000 fine. If police and prosecutors manage to turn one of these charges into a possession with intent case, however, you will be subject to extremely severe criminal penalties that could put you behind bars for 20 years, and make you forfeit up to $25,000. Other factors including the presence of firearms, past criminal activity, federal drug charges, and proximity to schools or parks can intensify your meth possession with intent charges even more.
Additionally, meth possession with intent cases often involve large amounts of the drug, and criminal penalties can occur alongside other Michigan civil penalties. If police have reason to believe you are making meth inside your home, or have tools meant for manufacture of methamphetamine, your property is subject to seizure and your land, home(s), and belongings could be forfeited. Our lawyers will help protect you against criminal charges and make sure you are not subject to even greater punishments.
If you have children in your home and are accused of making methamphetamine, child protective services may step in.
