The Illinois law on controlled substance is complex. Drug crimes in Illinois may be classified as felonies or misdemeanors dependent upon the type and amount of the drug involved. To have any drug or narcotics crime conviction on your record can have serious future consequences as well as facing probation or incarceration as part of the penalties meted out by the court. It may be difficult to get a job, or a young person may be denied government student aid and college loans for a period of time and an alien can face deportation. If you or a loved one is facing such a charge, it is crucial to have the assistance of a Chicago drug crime defense lawyer. The criminal defense attorneys from the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege have a thorough understanding of the consequences of a conviction and are determined to fight aggressively to defend you in court.
If you are facing a charge of delivery of a controlled substance, possession, or possession with intent to deliver, or other drug or narcotics crime, ensure you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney. Both Federal and Illinois controlled substances laws prohibit possession, manufacture, distribution, sale, prescription forgery, and trafficking. In Illinois, being found within 1000 feet of a protected area, such as a theater, church, park or school may double the penalties and sentence when convicted. A knowledgeable defense attorney from the firm is well versed in the laws governing the execution of search warrants, warrant and warrantless arrests, illegal search and seizure, as well as other issues and will investigate all aspects of your matter.
