Drug Charges – Criminal Defense Lawyer

Criminal Defense for Drug Crimes

The State of New Mexico is becoming increasingly aggressive in its efforts to fight the infiltration of illegal drugs from south of the border. Located at the intersection of two major highways, Albuquerque is both a destination for and origin of drug trafficking, making Albuquerque a strategic battleground in New Mexico’s war on drugs.

The penalties for drug crimes are quite severe, particularly for subsequent offenses. If you are facing drug crime charges, contact Dan Baca, a drug crime defense lawyer in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has the experience to aggressively defend your civil rights and liberties.

Drug Crime

Types of Drug Crimes

State and federal drug possession laws and drug trafficking laws outline several criminal drug-related activities, including:

  • Possession
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Distribution
  • Illegal trafficking

The type of drug in possession or moved or sold is considered in determining the class of the charge; the presence of any drug crime conviction on your record, even a misdemeanor, will significantly increase the severity of charges and penalties faced for a subsequent offense.

Your Rights When Facing Drug Crime Charges

The Constitution of the State of New Mexico provides even more protection than the federal Constitution when it comes to searching your home or personal possessions. Unfortunately, law enforcement officers do not always follow the proper procedures in their pursuit of investigating illegal drug activity. However, the war on drugs is no excuse for civil rights violations.

To ensure that your rights are protected and that violations do not jeopardize your freedom, seek the assistance of drug crime defense lawyer Dan Baca.
