Facing Charges for Drug Distribution?
One of the many drug crimes that one can be charged with in addition to drug production and possession is drug distribution. This is the crime generally charged against those known as drug dealers. It may be the guy standing at the corner selling joints, someone who delivers shipments of marijuana, meth, or heroine, and anyone else who sells illegal drugs.
Drug distribution charges carry the same weight as possession or production charges, so be ready for a long drawn out fight in court. With the help of Utah Defenders, however, you will be able to enter the court confident that you have outstanding criminal defense attorneys on your side.
The More You Sell or Distribute and What You Sell Determines the Penalties
Utah’s drug distribution laws are based on a sliding scale. The more you are caught with the more likely you will be facing very serious consequences. Thus, if you sell less than an ounce of marijuana you will not be confronted with charges as serious as if you are charged with selling 30 or 40 pounds of marijuana.
Further, if you sell or distribute marijuana as opposed to hard drugs such as heroine or meth your charges will less. Hard drug distribution carries higher penalties.
