Monmouth County NJ LSD Lawyer
Although LSD is probably one of the farthest things from a “common” drug, especially in Monmouth County, it is one of the more serious drugs out there. It has been classified as a Schedule I controlled dangerous substance (CDS) and it does not take a significant amount of LSD to quickly escalate a distribution case to a first degree felony. So if you have been arrested for the possession of LSD or the distribution of LSD in Monmouth County, at places like the PNC Bank Art Center, the Stone Pony, the campus of Monmouth University or elsewhere, it is crucial that you speak to a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. A felony drug possession conviction let alone a felony drug distribution conviction can absolutely play havoc on someone’s life, let alone potential subject them to decades behind bars. Furthermore, the New Jersey bail guidelines now allow for the prosecution to seek to detain a Defendant in the Monmouth County, without bail, pending trial. Now this is not the norm for drug possession cases, it very well could be considered the norm for distribution case. For more information on bail guidelines and detention hearings in New Jersey, please contact our Middletown office at 732.858.6959.

Asbury Park NJ LSD Possession Attorney
Being placed under arrested and hauled away in the back of a police car can be terrifying for most. Not knowing who to trust or where to turn to only add to the already stressful situation. That is why at Proetta & Oliver we feel that hiring the right attorney, someone who only practices criminal law but someone who is also familiar with the particular courts can go a long way to alleviating a lot of the stress. Anyone arrested and charged with possessing LSD in Monmouth County will be summonsed to appear in the Monmouth County Superior Court, which is located at 71 Monument Street in Freehold. That is because all LSD possession cases are classified as third degree felony offenses. If convicted of this offense, a Defendant will be facing up to five (5) years in prison, a $35,000 fine and a felony drug conviction. Depending on a Defendant’s prior criminal history, they may be eligible for the Pretrial Intervention Program (PTI). This could allow for the Defendant to bypass the traditional methods of prosecution and be placed on a probationary period. If at the end of that probationary period the Defendant has successfully completed all of the terms, the charges would be dismissed outright.
LSD Distribution Lawyer in Long Branch NJ
All drug distribution cases in New Jersey will be governed by NJSA 2C:35-5. Just like all other drug distribution cases, the quantity of the drug in question will dictate what degree of a felony a Defendant is facing. However, when it comes to LSD distribution charges, there is no third degree felony, there is only a first and a second degree. Pursuant to NJSA 2C:35-5b(6) & (7), if a Defendant is caught possessing more than 100 milligrams or more than 10 grams of LSD, they will be charged with a first degree felony. Conversely, if the Defendant is caught possessing less than 100 milligrams or less than 10 grams they will be charged with a second degree felony.
