Aggressive Defense of Drug Charges

    Whether you are a student picked up for possession of marijuana or an adult charged with drug trafficking, you need to know that authorities take drug charges very seriously.

Serious Consequences for Drug Crime Convictions

    Conviction on drug charges can result in stiff fines and years of incarceration. A conviction on your record for even a minor offense can make it difficult to get a job or a place to live. Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, lawyers, stockbrokers and other professionals may lose their license to practice their profession and earn a living if convicted of a drug crime.

    The attorneys of Bellon & Maningo, Ltd., in Las Vegas represent clients facing the full range of drug charges, from possession of drug paraphernalia to federal drug trafficking charges. They defend clients charged with possession and sale of marijuana, cocaine, meth and prescription drugs such as OxyContin, Oxycodone, Vicodin and other narcotics

Potential Life Sentence for 28 Grams

    Consequences for drug crimes depend on the type and amount of the drug. It doesn’t take much to elevate a drug trafficking charge to an extremely serious offense. Conviction for high-level drug trafficking — 28 grams or more — has a potential life sentence.

A gram is the size of a sugar packet. Just a handful of them can put you away for life.

    Because the consequences of conviction are so brutal, the lawyers of Bellon & Maningo aggressively defend clients charged with drug crimes. They always examine whether the evidence against you was obtained legally. If not, they will file a motion to suppress the evidence obtained through an illegal search and seizure, so it cannot be used against you.
