An experienced drug offenses attorney matters in your Arizona drug case
Drug laws in Arizona are incredibly complicated and the penalties can range anywhere from a short period of probation to life in prison. Even two defendants who have been convicted of the same exact drug crime may end up with drastically differing sentences, depending on factors like prior convictions and the quality of defense put forth by their Arizona drug offenses attorney.
In the state of Arizona, any crime that is punishable by one year or more in prison is considered a felony. Many commonly charged drug offenses fall into this category. Felonies in Arizona are divided into four different classes labeled two-six and carry five types of potential sentences, which are partially determined by the presence or the lack of any mitigating factors. Mitigating factors are facts about the circumstances around the crime or the defendant’s background that may warrant leniency in the eyes of the judge.
When allowing for mitigating factors, a judge may consider the defendant’s age, whether or not he or she shows genuine remorse for the crime, if he or she has a history of suffering from an addiction or a mental illness, whether there were unusual circumstances pressuring the individual to break the law, how large of a part he or she actually played in the crime, whether the defendant cooperated with police, and any other background information the judge finds to be relevant. It is very much necessary to have a skilled drug offenses attorney on your side to present any mitigating factors in your Sierra Vista case in the best possible light to the judge, as a request for reduced sentencing.
It is important to understand that just like certain factors can result in leniency in a drug case, certain other factors can be considered by the judge for an increased sentence. If the drug crime you are being charged with was committed near a school or daycare center or otherwise involved children in any way, was gang related, or was committed while you were on still on probation or parole for another crime, it is likely that you will receive enhanced penalties. With certain drug felonies being punishable by 20 years or more served in a federal prison, it is absolutely imperative that you invest in hiring an experienced and competent Sierra Vista, AZ drug offenses lawyer to represent you in your drug case.
