Facing Accusations of Drug Crimes in Peoria IL? Hire a Reliable Defense Team

Laws in place for possession and use of certain drugs come with steep penalties in Illinois. However, some of these punishments don’t always fit the crime.

Thus, you need the experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense team of Borsberry Law Office. We can help settle your case with a more positive outcome.

What You Have to Worry About

While you might think you won’t need to hire an attorney for your case, you’re not doing yourself any favors. If you want a judge to hear your side of a story and take your defense seriously, you need professional legal representation on your side. Otherwise, you face consequences like:

  • Fines and Jail Time – Under the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, there are varying penalties for being in possession of anywhere between 15 grams to 900 grams or more of heroin, cocaine and morphine. All these penalties result in steep fines and anywhere from 4 to 50 years in prison.
  • Cannabis – Even though cannabis has been legalized for medicinal and recreational use in the state of Illinois, you can still get in trouble for selling the product (without proper licensing) or being under the influence while operating a vehicle.
  • Sale and Trafficking – If you are being accused of more than drug possession, you face potentially worse penalties. This includes all the previously mentioned substances under the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, cannabis without approval for sale, and opioids or prescriptions acquired illegally.
