Drug Distribution Offenses in Oregon

Attorney Defends Charges of Drug Distribution

Essentially, drug distribution charges refer to the act of transferring or delivering a controlled substance to another person or place. If a law enforcement agent catches you handing a bag of drugs to another person, you could be charged with a drug distribution crime. You may have never thought that things would get to this point, but that's just how easy a criminal charge can come. In one day, everything you knew could be challenged due to one minor mistake.

There is good news, and there are defenses available to you. You do not have to fear a life behind bars just because you have been arrested! Only an experienced drug defense attorney can defend you after an arrest. Consult my firm right away.

Drug Distribution Penalties

In order for you to be found guilty of a drug distribution charge, the prosecution must be able to prove that you actually distributed a drug. It may seem straightforward, but oftentimes, the prosecution will not have physical or direct evidence that you actually delivered the drugs. Aside from the claim made by a police officer who arrested you, the prosecution typically will not have a strong enough claim to prove that you distributed drugs beyond a reasonable doubt.

On the other hand, you can also be found guilty of a distribution charge even without completing a delivery. The simple intent to distribute drugs can lead to a guilty charge of actual distribution, even if you never actually transferred drugs. Prosecutors may try to look for evidence such as individual baggies, digital scales, or other drug paraphernalia that may lead to the assumption that you were intending to distribute drugs to someone.

If you are found to be guilty of drug distribution, you could be facing up to 45 months of prison time. Individuals who have a clean criminal record may experience lower penalties. It is essential to retain a Medford drug crime lawyer who can help you avoid the maximum sentence in either case.
