Drug Related Charges
Drug related charges are a specialized category of crimes in Utah. They are enhanceable, meaning that subsequent charges carry additional penalties.
Drug charges are prosecuted aggressively in Utah and require the skill, persistence and knowledge of a highly skilled attorney.
Drug convictions can carry the prohibition of owning and carrying firearms for any purpose. Drug charges are also difficult to expunge due to prior convictions being used to enhance subsequent offenses.
Finally, drug possession cases result in a lengthy driver's license suspension, with no chance of a restricted driver's license.
