Drug Crime Defense Attorneys

Being charged with a drug related crime is a serious matter. Drug offenses can range from a Summary Offense (least severe) to a Felony offense (most severe). Our criminal defense team handles all drug offenses.

You Are Innocent Until Proven Guilty

There is only one way you can be found guilty of any drug charge: The prosecution must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, all of the elements of the offense. Our defense team knows that these elements can be complicated.

In many drug cases, the prosecution must prove specific amounts of the substance, specific drug classifications, and that you were actually in possession of the substance. Just because the prosecution makes an allegation does not mean it is true.

The Bononi & Company Criminal Defense Team will hold the prosecution accountable.

Bononi & Company, Drug Offense Lawyers

Our firm aggressively fights for our clients. You will work directly with one of our criminal defense attorneys that handles Drug Crimes. Your attorney and his highly skilled team will work with you to determine what defenses are available and what options you have.

Our team has handled drug cases in Westmoreland County, Cambria County, Fayette County, and Allegheny County.  

Charged with a Felony?

Drug offenses can be serious. Recently, many elected officials have taken a zero tolerance approach with many drug offenses. This has led to the laws of Pennsylvania harshly punishing certain drug offenses. Substances such as cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine may carry mandatory minimum sentences, especially if Commonwealth charges “intent to distribute.”

You may have a right to a Carroll Hearing where we can argue whether it was our client’s intent to distribute the substance or not. This can have an effect on the charges our clients are facing and can drastically reduce the sentence our client is facing. 

First Time Drug Offender?

It is important that you speak with an attorney that handles Drug Offenses so that all options are explored. First time offenders may be eligible for Probation Without Verdict or the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition Program.

Depending on the facts of the case, either option may be available. These options are available for first time offenders and are designed to minimize what impact drug charges have on those accused. It is best to address these issues early in your case.  

Small Amount of Marijuana?

Just because Marijuana is legal for certain uses in Pennsylvania does not mean that anyone can possess it. Despite recent progress, Marijuana is generally still illegal to possess and law enforcement continues to pursue Marijuana related charges. It is also illegal to possess items used to smoke Marijuana, such as pipes and bongs.

Our Criminal Defense Attorneys are trained to handle Marijuana related charges. Our team keeps up to date on laws and Court decisions that impact how the Commonwealth can proceed with Marijuana related cases.  

Do I Need A Defense Attorney For A Drug Offense?

When you are charged with a crime, you are up against a prosecutor and police officer. Their job it is to convict you. If they are successful, you can face serious penalties, including incarceration.

Our Drug Crime Defense Team’s job is to be in your corner. We challenge the prosecutions case and fight for the best result possible. Whether a drug felony in Greensburg, a small amount charge in Johnstown, or a misdemeanor charge in Latrobe, we take your case seriously. The Commonwealth has many resources available to them.

You deserve a quality criminal defense attorney on your side.
