Farmington Drug Possession Attorney


Experienced Drug Possession Lawyer Serving Davis County, UT

Although every state regulates the possession of controlled dangerous substances – also known as CDS – each state differs in its classification and definition of CDS and the punishment for illegal drug possession. Utah classifies commonly known drugs like cocaine, and heroin as CDS, but it also classifies the compounds of which they are made. If you get caught with a controlled substance in Farmington, you need to enlist the services of Joseph Jardine and his team of drug possession attorneys.

How The State Of Utah Categories CDs

Utah divides CDS into five categories called “Schedules.” Schedule I lists the most dangerous drugs, drugs that are more likely to be abused and cause addiction and have zero medical value. Schedules II, III, IV, and V decrease in danger and probability of abuse. They also increase in recognized medical value.

If you’ve been arrested for illegal CDS possession, retaining a drug possession attorney in Farmington is your first line of defense. The attorneys of Jardine Law Offices P.C. have more than 15 years of experience under their belt defending cases like this. Give their offices a call at (801) 396-9993 for a free case evaluation.


Schedule I or II

In Farmington, a drug possession charge can range in penalties depending on the amount you possess. Most possession charges can end as a Class A misdemeanor. You can face a third-degree felony charge for possession of a Schedule I or II CDS over a pound. Penalties include a fine up to $5,000, up to 5 years in prison, or in some cases, both.
