Michigan Criminal Law: Drug Crimes

Charges involving allegations of narcotics use, possession, or manufacturing/delivery are a serious issue and carry significant sanctions. Charges vary significantly depending on the alleged substance, type of alleged activity, and quantities of alleged substances. Even with prescription medications, there is a long and comprehensive list of potential offenses that may be charged under certain alleged circumstances.

Anyone charged, of course, is presumed innocent. The prosecutor would need to prove the elements of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt if the matter proceeded to trial. Simply because a person is charged does not mean that they will be convicted.
If you need specific legal advice for your particular circumstances, we encourage you to privately consult with a lawyer. Circumstances may vary significantly.
If you are charged with an offense and cannot afford to pay for your own defense, the court may appoint you an attorney payable at the public’s expense. You have a right to counsel.
