Drug Crimes

En Espanol

I had already hired another lawyer, but I did not trust him. Then I was lucky because I met David. I gave him my complete confidence and I know he worked hard to get my drug case dismissed. He fought hard and proved the cops were wrong in doing what they did. Now I can run my business and run for office.

As a former Assistant Hennepin County Attorney and Assistant United States Attorney, David Reyes prosecuted state and federal drug cases for over twelve years. He is keenly aware of the intricacies of dealing with the harsh realities and stiff penalties found in state and federal controlled substance cases. He has the knowledge and expertise clients require for dealing with state and federal controlled substance cases.

If you have recently been charged with a Minnesota or federal drug offense, it is important to hire a skilled defense attorney right away. In recent years, the punishments for drug charges have become increasingly severe. Drug offenses in Minnesota can result in felony charges with penalties up to 30 years in prison and fines up to $1,000,000. Federal drug offenses can result in life imprisonment.

Similar to other criminal charges, drug offenses are arranged in severity by degrees including:

  • Felony First Degree Drug Offense
  • Felony Second Degree Drug Offense
  • Felony Third Degree Drug Offense
  • Felony Fourth Degree Drug Offense

Minnesota and the Federal Government have laws against the unlawful use, manufacture and distribution of drugs. Drug offense charges vary depending on the circumstances involved, the quantity of the drug, the drug classification under the schedules, and the purpose/intent of its possession.
