DEFENSE FOR UTAH DRUG CHARGES

The consequences you could have to deal with for a drug crime conviction can vary widely depending on a number of factors, including the type and amount of the controlled substance involved as well as the nature of the crime. If there is a prior conviction for a drug offense already on your record, a subsequent charge could be enhanced by a degree.

In addition, a drug charge can be enhanced depending on where you were at the time of the alleged offense. Your charge can be enhanced to a degree higher if you were within 1,000 feet of any of the following places:

  • School
  • Church
  • Movie house
  • Public park
  • Theater
  • Recreation center
  • Sports facility
  • Stadium
  • Shopping mall
