Johnson County Drug Crime Lawyer

Kansas Drug Crime Laws

No matter the nature of your drug offense, you face serious penalties and life-changing criminal records, including large fines, terms of imprisonment and years of probation.

We offer trial-tested drug crime defense. Our drug charge attorneys can help you against charges that include:

If you have been charged with simple drug possession or other misdemeanor drug offenses, then you might be able to avoid jail through alternative sentencing options. Other crimes, such as sales or distribution, leave little room for leniency, however.

  • “Scott's legal skills & finesse, courtroom experience, and commitment to this case were critical.”

  • “Because of you we have our son back with us, in our lives, every day, to touch, hug and converse with.”

  • “Your professionalism and compassion were outstanding.”

  • “I think you did a great job of making certain that the jurors kept their eye on the facts.”

  • “In our eyes, you went above and beyond what a lawyer usually does in a case.”


Johnson County Drug Crime Penalties

Ever since Kansas laws changed in July of 2012, the penalties for felony drug crimes have changed substantially. Much like federal sentencing guidelines, Kansas drug sentencing guidelines are calculated based on the amount of the controlled substance involved. Now even if you are a first time offender, your chances of probation have significantly dropped—you are likely facing certain imprisonment if you are convicted.

What is the benefit of having former prosecutors on your side? Our firm is able to identify the types of tactics and strategies that prosecutors use to gain convictions and harsh sentences. Armed with this knowledge, we can structure defense plans around the prosecution to neutralize their cases.

Former Johnson County Prosecutors on Your Side

Although the American war on drugs remains a heated and concerning topic, drug users and suppliers are still within the crosshairs of state and federal legislation. In Kansas, drug offenses can range from misdemeanors to felonies depending on the controlled substance, the amount, and a person's criminal record.

Tyler Garretson spent years in the drug division of the Johnson County District Attorney's Office and has accumulated ample knowledge of the laws surrounding the full spectrum of misdemeanor and felony drug offenses. Scott Toth also served as a prosecutor for over a decade.
