Drug Charge in Holmdel
Possession of any quantity of CDS is typically a felony criminal offense with the exception of less than 50 grams of marijuana. Possessing cocaine, heroin, MDMA or in excess of 50 grams of weed involves a charge that can only be decided at the Superior Court level. Typically, someone who possesses drugs like these faces a third degree crime with a maximum fine of $35,000, up to 5 years in prison, and a 6-24 months driver’s license revocation. It takes skillful representation to sidestep consequences like these and this is something our firm can absolutely achieve in a high percentage of cases. We are accomplished defense lawyers who handle Holmdel drug cases involving:
- MDMA (a.k.a. Molly, Ecstasy, etc.)
- Prescription drugs like Xanax, Valium, Morphine, GHB, Oxycodone, Adderall, Ritalin and Hydrocodone
Possession of drugs is nothing to take lightly. Whether you were arrested at school, on a local roadway in the township, on the Garden State Parkway or at PNC Arts Center, possessing an illegal drug in Holmdel exposes you to significant punishment.
Arrested For Distributing Drugs in Holmdel
An entirely different set of laws applies if your drug charge involves selling, distributing or possession with the intent to distribute. The general distribution statute that applies when this is the case is N.J.S.A. 2C:35-5 although any number of laws may be implicated depending on where the conduct occurred in Holmdel. If you are accused of selling heroin, MDMA or even marijuana in Holmdel Park or another recreational facility, you may be facing a separate charge for distribution in a public park. Another separate offense may have arisen if it is alleged that you sold a drug/cds at Holmdel High School or in another school zone of the township. The point is that cds distribution charge can take on many issues and, in addition, is always an indictable crime that can land you in state prison.
