Arrested for Drug Possession in El Paso County?

Prison, heavy fines, and mandatory drug rehabilitation are likely if there are prior convictions or a significant quantity of a controlled substance. Your freedom may hinge on the skill and knowledge of your attorney.

If you are facing a misdemeanor or felony charge for a drug crime in Colorado Springs, Gasper Law Group can help you take action and ensure that your rights are protected. With a strong defense, it is possible to have charges reduced or dropped altogether.

What are the Types of Drug Crimes in Colorado?

A controlled substance is an illegal drug that is prohibited by law to be manufactured, distributed, or to have in possession. According to the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 (CSA), there are five categories or “schedules” of controlled substances, based on the potential for addiction and abuse: Schedule I, Schedule II, Schedule III, Schedule IV, and Schedule V.

The most common types of drug crimes related to controlled substances include:

  • Possession of marijuana or drug paraphernalia
  • Possession of meth, cocaine, heroin or other illegal drug
  • Illegal possession of prescription narcotics (e.g. Vicodin, Oxycontin)
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Distribution/drug trafficking
  • Cultivating or manufacture
  • Drug-related theft, fraud, weapons charges or money laundering

Colorado Drug Crime Penalties

Depending on the circumstances of each situation, and whether or not there are prior convictions or a significant quantity of a controlled substance involved, the penalties for drug crimes in Colorado can range significantly from heavy fines and rehabilitation to jail time. Drug crime penalties can also affect day-to-life post sentence. According to statistics, individuals with a criminal record have fewer employment prospects (convicted felons cannot work in healthcare, law enforcement, finance, government, or education) and educational resources (convicted felons are ineligible for financial aid), and can even have a difficult time finding stable housing, as most landlords routinely perform background checks on prospective tenants.

    "They took care of my case in a very timely manner and made it feel like my traffic ticket was their number one and only priority."
    Caryn Adams, Stacey Sadler and the rest of the team at the Gasper law group are an amazing, courteous, compassionate, and very helpful group of talented individuals. I was in a bind and during my consultation I explained my situation and they went above and beyond my expectations. They took care of my case in a very timely manner and made it feel like my traffic ticket was their number one and only priority. I have never been treated with such respect and compassion. I definitely recommend talking to them about any of your legal needs.

    "My charges were dropped and we walked away with all parental rights/custody and a restraining order against the other party."
    Caryn Adams and her team are hands down the BEST. I don't think I would have made it through what I went through without her by my side. My charges were dropped and we walked away with all parental rights/custody and a restraining order against the other party.

    "A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence"
    Highly professional team of attorneys and paralegal staff who work hard to reach the best outcomes for their clients. A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence, and discovery with effective preparation of cases entrusted to them. The partner representing me, Ms. Caryn Adams was truly impressive in her knowledge of the law, her empathy, and her care for getting the best possible resolution in my favor in pre-trial negotiation. And I have no doubt she and her team would be just as dedicated and efficient in more complex defense situations. I recommend them highly and without reservation in all areas of the law in which they are eminently qualified.
