What are the Indiana Drug Laws?

Indiana has strict drug laws. Even a mere possession charge can result in a sentence of jail time and fines. The severity of the felony depends on the type of drug involved and criminal activities, such as manufacturing or trafficking.

While some drug crimes are certainly more intense than others, any drug conviction can impact your freedom, reputation, and prospects. For this reason, you should immediately contact an experienced drug crime attorney if you are under arrest on a drug charge.

If convicted, you will have a permanent criminal record that will follow you into the future. In addition, you could face enhanced criminal charges in certain circumstances.

You may be facing enhanced charges for:

  • Possession of large quantities
  • Prior criminal history
  • Possession of a weapon
  • Financing drug manufacturing

What are the Penalties for Drug Possession of Cocaine and Meth?

  • Possession of fewer than 3 grams of Cocaine or Methamphetamine is a Class D Felony. It is punishable by six months to 3 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.
  • Possession of fewer than 3 grams of Cocaine or Methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of school property is a Class A Felony. It is punishable by 20-50 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.
  • Possession of more than 3 grams of Cocaine or Methamphetamine is a Class C Felony. Possession within a school zone is a Class A Felony - these crimes are punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.

Preparing an Effective Defense in Chesterton

As your Chesterton criminal defense attorney, I examine all aspects of your constitutional rights and the circumstances of the criminal defense case. I thoroughly investigate your criminal case to look for opportunities to suppress statements or evidence, such as:

    Real Reviews From Real Clients

      "Very Impressed!"
      We recently hired Mr Tavitas to represent our son for a marijuana citation in Porter County. From our first phone call, it was clearly evident that he genuinely cared about our sons case. He was very upfront about the prospects of the case, the steps he would take and the approximate cost to us, which was very fair and reasonable. Mr Tavitas is incredibly accessible. If he misses your call, you will be getting a return call in a very short time. Being kept informed of everything going on in our case was very important to us and he delivered! Highly recommend Mr Adam Tavitas!

      "I would highly recommend Adam to any clients in need of an attorney!"
      Adam is an awesome attorney in all aspects that offered and delivered a lot of help and all that he promised when we had originally first talked. He is very affable, and always is very quick to get back to you and answer all of your questions clearly. I would highly recommend Adam to any clients in need of an attorney!

      "Definitely recommend him! His pricing is reasonable as well!"
      Adam Tavitas got my probation dismissed after a probation revocation. He even took on all my other cases of driving without a license on after I hired him! Definitely recommend him! His pricing is reasonable as well!
      - David K.
      "He got the charges reduced, great communication, and cares about the case he is taking on."
      He got the charges reduced, great communication, and cares about the case he is taking on. Never had to talk to a receptionist and wait on a call back since he gave his personal work phone number (being able to text/call) and got back as soon as he was able to. Very happy we came across him, not many compassionate lawyers out here that cares like he does. Will definitely recommend and hire again if needed!
