Minnesota Drug Charges

Minnesota Drug Charges Lawyer

A person can be charged with a number of Minnesota drug crimes. They can include drug possession, drug trafficking, drug sale, or the distribution of drugs. The charges can be even more serious if the drug activities happen near a park or school or if they were sold or given to a minor. There are many reasons why Minnesota drug charges can lead to years in prison.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a drug offense, you do have the right to defend yourself against the charges. Even if there is merit to the charges, you have rights that need to be protected.  There may be elements in your case that allow you to get a much better result than you would have otherwise. With the help of a Minnesota drug charges lawyer at Arechigo & Stokka, you can receive a quality criminal defense designed to secure the best conclusion.

Expert Drug Crimes Defense

In Minnesota, drug distribution, sale, and trafficking can be much more serious than simply possessing the drug without any intent to distribute. Distributing a drug can result in a very long prison sentence and high fines. A driver’s license can be suspended or revoked and any property used in the commission of the crime can be forfeited. There are many penalties that can be experienced in addition to the criminal record that results.

The different types of illegal drugs include:

  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Heroin and opiates
  • Barbiturates
  • Illegal prescription drugs
  • Methamphetamines
  • Cocaine
  • Synthetic drugs
  • Khat

A person can also face Minnesota drug charges if they are in possession of drug paraphernalia, found to be manufacturing any drugs, or if there are any materials found on a person that suggests they are manufacturing or distributing drugs in any way.

Thorough Minnesota Drug Charges Defense

When your Minnesota criminal defense lawyer at Arechigo & Stokka begins working on your case, you can expect a thorough investigation to take place.  All of the facts that lead to your Minnesota drug charges will be carefully reviewed, including the stop of you or your vehicle, a search of you or your vehicle, or the search of a residence.  If a search warrant was used to search you or your residence, the reasons why the warrant was issued will be investigated. Sometimes, the maximum charge can be filed, but the actual act doesn’t warrant the maximum charge. By proving this, the Minnesota drug charges can be reduced and that means being convicted of the lesser crime. Being convicted on lesser charges results in less time in jail or prison and lower fines. Sometimes the charges can be completely dismissed under the right circumstances.

What Our Client's are Saying:

  • When I was injured at work and the insurance company denied my claim, I didn’t know what I was going to do. I had medical bills mounting, no income, and three children to take care of. Josh helped me understand the process, how long it would take, and in the end, he got all my medical bills paid and got me paid for my injury. In one of the worst times in my life, it helped to able to count on an attorney who understands the law and who was on my side every step of the way.

  • I got injured when a piece of sheet rock fell on my back. The insurance company doctor said my herniated disc was age related and not because of what fell on my back. The attorneys at Arechigo & Stokka, got me paid until we had to go to court, and in the end got all my bills paid and more. I cannot thank them enough.

  • My car crash was one of the worst things that ever happened to me. The insurance company wanted me to settle my case right away without speaking to an attorney. Friends told me I didn’t need an attorney. After months of trying to do things on my own, I knew I need to obtain the advice of an attorney. I am so glad I did. Josh and John helped me get all my bills paid and get compensated for all I went through with my injury.

  • John represented me so well during my case. Being from a private firm made a difference, he was able to timely respond to my questions throughout and was always available any time day or night. John was always very well prepared and hard working. I highly recommend his assistance as a defense attorney

  • John was very helpful throughout the whole process, kept me up to date and informed on all aspects of the case and we achieved the desired successful result.

  • John and I have worked as opposing counsel in the past and I have observed his work in court many times. John is a highly skilled trial lawyer and I endorse him.
