“I was employed at a state corrections facility. When I got charged with Felonious Assault and Kidnapping, my job put me on unpaid leave. Greg Robey fought hard for me and the State agreed to dismiss all the felony charges against me. I am now back on the job because of the hard work of Mr. Robey.” -T.J., Cleveland, Ohio
Methamphetamine is a highly addictive and dangerous drug. So much so that the federal government has developed harsh penalties for people who commit methamphetamine drug crimes. In fact, the federal penalties for drug crimes are typically much, much worse than state punishments. If you are convicted of a federal drug crime, you are sentenced to serve your time in a federal prison, not state prison or county jail.
Below are the federal penalties you face if you are caught with between five and 49 grams of pure meth or 50 to 499 grams of methamphetamine mixture:
Individuals arrested for more than 500 grams of meth face even harsher penalties and fines. The federal government has deemed methamphetamine a schedule II drug along with PCP and cocaine. If you are arrested for using, selling, possessing or trafficking meth, seek immediate and experienced legal help. A skilled lawyer may be able to have the charges against you reduced or possibly dropped.
