While several states have legalized medicinal and recreational marijuana, Oklahoma is not one of them. In fact, possession of marijuana is considered the most frequently charged drug crime in the state. Those who have been charged with marijuana possession face the possibility of jail time and fines.
If you have been arrested for possession of marijuana, the Law Offices of Keith J. Nedwick, P.C. can defend you against marijuana charges and work to minimize the penalties against you or get your case dismissed altogether. With more than five decades of combined experience, our Norman criminal defense lawyers possess a thorough understanding of Oklahoma law to guide you through the complexities of the criminal justice system.
Marijuana possession is considered a misdemeanor on the first offense. This misdemeanor carries a maximum jail sentence of one year and a fine of up to $1,000. However, if a person possesses marijuana and is arrested within 1000 feet of a school or in the presence of any children under 12 years of age, the penalties could double.
In many instances, we are able to get the case dismissed, which spares you a trial or conviction. In others, we effectively defend against criminal charges at trial or negotiate a plea bargain that works in your favor. Our Norman criminal defense attorneys are willing to do whatever it takes to get the most favorable outcome possible.
