The State of Arizona has extremely harsh penalties for drug offenses, and extensive law enforcement resources are focused on finding and arresting those who are in possession of drugs or selling drugs. As Arizona is considered a “port” state in which drugs enter the country over the border from Mexico, we have many task forces, both state and federal, committed to stopping the spread of illegal drugs into Arizona.

If you have been arrested and charged with a drug crime, whether possession, possession with intent, distribution, manufacturing or trafficking, this is the start of what can prove to be a real legal nightmare.

The law offices of Jake Amaru are prepared to aggressively defend clients charged with all types of drug offenses, and have earned an impressive record in such cases.

The system in Arizona is very tough on those who are selling drugs or possessing over a “threshold” amount.  The penalties put upon those who are convicted can include years of mandatory state or federal prison time.  If you have been charged with any type of drug sale you should contact an attorney immediately.

Arizona Revised Statute 13-901.01 mandates that anyone convicted of a first or second time simple drug possession (excluding methamphetamine, all drugs where the amount possessed is considered “for sale,” and individuals with violent prior convictions) is subject to MANDATORY Probation.  What that means to you is that unless there are solid ways to defeat the case, (for example, an illegal seizure) under most circumstances the State will offer a Class Six undesignated plea (with the opportunity for a misdemeanor) and mandatory probation no matter who you hire.

The law offices of Jake Amaru offer a totally unique service for those arrested on simple drug possession charges.  Simple case work and consultation can be had at a flat and reduced fee for those needing “shepherding” though the process. Affordable defense options are available for those wishing to go to trial.
