Drug Crimes

Drug Possession • Drug Delivery • Intent to Deliver

Never plead guilty to a drug charge without first seeking a lawyer's advice, especially if you are a high school or college student. If you are convicted of a drug charge (which you are if you plead guilty), you become ineligible for federal financial aid for college.

Not a college student? There are still very serious repercussions from any drug crime conviction. If you are charged with a felony drug crime, you could lose your house or car to forfeiture if the prosecutor makes a case that either was used in the manufacture or delivery of drugs. In addition to representing you on your drug charge, I will also represent you in any forfeiture proceedings related to the drug charge.

I'm Waukesha and Milwaukee drug crimes defense attorney Craig Kuhary. As soon as you contact my Waukesha criminal defense firm, I will immediately begin working on your behalf, gathering and reviewing police reports and obtaining a pretrial offer from the prosecutor. I will get you into a treatment program as soon as possible to minimize your exposure to penalties such as fines and jail time. Sometimes with proof of successful treatment, I can get a drug charge reduced to an ordinance violation, which is similar to a traffic ticket.

I defend people charged with committing the following kinds of drug offenses:

  • Drug possession (marijuana, cocaine, MDMA, heroin, ecstasy, methamphetamine)
  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs or drug fraud
  • Intent to sell drugs
  • Distribution of drugs
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia such as marijuana pipes or scales for weighing drugs
  • Intent to distribute drugs
  • Narcotics trafficking
  • Manufacturing or cultivation of illegal drugs
  • Delivery and sale of illegal drugs
  • Operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs (OUI)

Defending College Students Facing Drug Charges

I represent juveniles and young adults facing criminal charges for marijuana possession, underage consumption of alcohol, illegal possession of a prescription drug or other drug crime. My clients include students from Carroll College, UW-Waukesha, UW-Milwaukee, Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) and Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC).

No one wants to ruin a young person's life, even prosecutors. The courts look at a number of factors when deciding what charges to file and whether to reduce or drop the charges. While the amount of drugs in your possession and a prior history of criminal charges work against you, cooperation, drug treatment and concrete plans for the future are all mitigating factors we can use to seek reduced charges.

If you are a young adult up to 21 years of age, I can seek an expungement of a misdemeanor conviction after you successfully complete your sentence. This would erase the criminal conviction from your record and allow you to say "no" if you are ever asked on a job application whether you have ever been convicted of a crime.
