Utah Drug Distribution Defense Attorney
Provo, Salt Lake, and Ogden Utah Drug Sales and Distribution
Illegal drug distribution is a serious offense in Utah. In fact, Utah prosecutors and officers often throw in a distribution charge when a defendant is charged with drug possession to use it as a bargaining chip to persuade the defendant to plea out of his case.
Drug distribution charges generally carry felony penalties. Even distribution of a small portion of marijuana can result in a third degree felony for the first conviction and a second degree felony for any subsequent conviction. Thus, if you are found to have marijuana or another controlled substance in your possession, chances are you will also be facing a drug distribution charge.
What’s more, if you are in possession of a firearm at the time of the alleged drug distribution, or if there is at least a firearm within your immediate possession (meaning you can get to it right away), the prosecution can seek another 1 to 5 years of jail time.
