Drug Possession Charges in Olathe

Defense Strategies for Drug Possession

Many state or city drug charges arise out of unplanned events or arrests in conjunction with something else. For example, many drug arrests are made after a plain traffic stop and the officer ends up finding marijuana or other drugs on the person or in the vehicle. This can sometimes lead to a suppression issue, resulting in a dismissal of the case. You need our team by your side to fight for your freedom.

Sometimes drug related arrests are made through a planned bust, often accompanied with federal rather than state charges. Our firm has experienced events where local law enforcement setts traps for people regarding drug sales, which leads to state charges. This happens when one person is threatened with drug charges and the officer makes a deal not to charge them if they agree to tell on someone else. This often requires the informer to wear a wire and convince one of their acquaintances to sell them drugs three times. The whole event is recorded by the officer and used in court at a later time.

State Laws Against Drug Possession

Possession of opiates, narcotics, or stimulant controlled substances is a class 4 felony under K.S.A. § 21-5706 and is punishable by a fine of up to $100,000 and as many as 16 months in prison. Possession of any other controlled substance is a class A nonperson misdemeanor, resulting in a fine of up to $2,500 and a jail sentence of up to one year.
