Methamphetamine or as it’s also known, “crystal,” “speed,” “ice,” or “glass” is an illegal controlled substance and any drug charge related to it is punished severely in Los Angeles as methamphetamine abuse is a long-established and growing problem in the state of California.
Law enforcement officials and prosecutors are making strong efforts to crack down on methamphetamine possession, manufacture, distribution, sales, trafficking, and importation. A methamphetamine charge may also be charged as a federal drug crime if the crime occurred on federal property or if methamphetamine was moved or sold across state lines. Methamphetamine crimes are not always charged as felonies. Depending on the amount of meth the individual was in possession of and their criminal record, a methamphetamine crime may be charged as a felony or misdemeanor.
In either scenario, obtaining the assistance of an experienced and skillful methamphetamine defense lawyer is highly advisable. Such an attorney can be found at the top-ranked Los Angeles criminal defense firm of Premier Federal Criminal Defenders.
There are a number of legal strategies that our methamphetamine defense lawyers use in these types of cases including attacking any mistakes law enforcement made in its investigation of your matter such as possible violations of your Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure.
Any violation of this right makes the evidence in question inadmissible in court, meaning that the prosecution has less evidence to prove their case. This is just one example of the many defense strategies our meth crime defense lawyers may take into consideration when assessing your specific case.
