Drug Charges

Defending Against A Variety Of Charges

Drug charges can vary greatly depending on the type of charge and the type of drug. At Edwards & Kautz in Kentucky, our lawyers have the depth of knowledge and experience to provide strong and effective defense against a range of drug charges, including:

  • Possession
  • Manufacturing
  • Cultivation
  • Trafficking
  • Federal drug charges

You can be charged for trafficking prescription drugs like opioid painkillers as well as controlled substances like heroin or cocaine.

The penalties for a drug conviction can also vary greatly depending on the severity of the charge. For more serious charges like trafficking or distribution of cocaine or methamphetamine, you could face prison time and high fines. Trafficking penalties can be particularly steep if you are alleged to have been trafficking drugs close to a school or playground. While possession charges are generally less serious than trafficking charges, they still carry the possibility of prison time. Even though the penalties for drug charges can be very severe, it is also common to be sentenced to probation. Our goal is to protect your rights to the fullest possible extent and help preserve your future, reputation and access to opportunities.

Did you know you can also face drug charges for possessing precursor chemicals or drug paraphernalia like drug pipes or bongs? Maybe you only know now, after an arrest. If you're wondering what to do now, call us to find out how we can help protect your rights: 270-908-4914.
