Drug trafficking and possession crimes have become commonplace throughout Hawaii. Due to our location, drugs are often transported to the mainland via Hawaii from countries such as Korea, Japan and the Philippines. At the Law Offices of Myles S. Breiner, we are well-versed in the complexities of drug crimes and constructing compelling defense strategies.
What Are The Different Types Of Drug Crimes?
Our office provides aggressive defense for all kinds of drug offenses, including:
- Drug possession — Possession charges are the most common. The severity of the charge is based on the amount and type of drugs involved. Drugs are classified as dangerous, harmful or detrimental, and charges are classified as first, second, or third degree.
- Drug possession with intent to distribute — If you are arrested for drug possession and the amount of drugs found is greater than a fixed amount, depending on the type of drug, it is assumed that you intended to distribute, or sell, those drugs.
- Drug trafficking — Trafficking involves the manufacture and movement of drugs and is considered the most serious drug offense. Trafficking can be a federal crime, depending on the amount of drugs involved.
What To Do If You Are Facing Drug Charges
Drug crimes range from misdemeanors to potentially life-altering felonies. Misdemeanor charges may involve fines, probation or time in jail. Punishment for federal drug crimes can mean years in prison. In these cases, it is imperative to utilize robust resources to defend your rights, beginning with hiring a skilled criminal attorney. The Law Offices of Myles S. Breiner is dedicated to your case and your future.
