Possession of Methamphetamine

Drug Crime Defense Lawyer in Athens

Methamphetamine, or meth, possession is taken seriously by Georgia law enforcement and the legal system. Due to its highly addictive nature, methamphetamine is classified as a Schedule II drug by the federal government. This means that possessing this controlled substance can result in serious criminal penalties. Your best hope for preventing these charges is to work with a resourceful Athens drug crime defense attorney.

Discussing the details of your case is the first step to building a defense. Call (706) 705-5122 today.

Methamphetamine Possession

Possession of any amount of meth will result in felony charges—even if you have only a small amount. In fact, just possessing meth-related paraphernalia, or items used to manufacture meth, could lead to arrest.

The penalties for a simple methamphetamine possession conviction could result in two to 30 years in prison, steep fines and drug rehabilitation. Certain factors, such as being arrested by a school or playground, could increase these penalties.

If the police believe that you were selling the drug, your charges could be upgraded to possession of meth with the intent to distribute. This is a much more serious offense than simple possession, which could lead to more prison time and fines up to $10,000.

Being convicted of a felony could render you ineligible to:

  • Work in certain professions
  • Vote
  • Own firearms
  • Travel outside of the country
  • Rent an apartment or house in certain areas
