More than 27 years of Aggressive Representation


The laws and regulations regarding drug crimes in Colorado have changed in recent months, and staying abreast of the new laws can be challenging. I am an experienced Colorado Springs drug crime attorney and a stickler for knowing every minute change in Colorado criminal defense. I give every client the individual attention they deserve and craft a unique strategy for each case that is designed to secure the best possible resolution.

Drug-related crimes are charged under many offenses including:

  • Distribution of an illegal substance
  • Manufacturing of drugs
  • Drug trafficking
  • Prescription drug fraud
  • Possession of a controlled substance

Drugs are classified on a sliding scale, known as a drug schedule, and depending on the type, amount, and intended use of a drug, penalties will vary. It is also important to remember that the laws governing marijuana have changed in Colorado.

Defense Strategies For Drug Charges In Colorado Springs

Some tactics to utilize in your defense against drug crimes include the following:

  • Illegal search and seizure – Under the Fourth Amendment, you hold certain rights that protect you from unlawful search and seizure. The police cannot search your home or vehicle without a search warrant, your consent, or probable cause. Any evidence found in an unlawful search and seizure can be suppressed by the court.
  • Unknowingly possessing drugs – this defense tactic challenges evidence that points to you knowingly possessing an illegal substance. Many people are wrongfully accused of drug possession under false beliefs. A third party could have stashed a drug in your vehicle or had you hold a package that contains drugs against your knowledge.
  • Crime lab analysis – For you to be prosecuted for a drug crime, it must first be verified by a lab that the drug found in your possession was, in fact, an illegal drug. This defense tactic can be used if the drug was never tested or if the drug was seized and went missing.
  • Medical needs – If you were charged with possessing or planting an excessive amount of marijuana, you could be faced with drug crime charges, regardless if the drug was prescribed. In Colorado, you cannot plant over six plants at home, without proving a medical need to.
