Strict Drug Crime Laws Mean Strict Penalties And Consequences

Massachusetts has strict drug laws that can seriously impact and disrupt your life, and are a cause for concern, even for a first-time offense. Being arrested for a violation of a Massachusetts drug law may feel overwhelming.

If you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with a drug crime in Middlesex County or Woburn County, don't go to court without attorney Richard Mucci. He is a determined criminal defense attorney who will work tirelessly to defend your rights and resolve your issue in the most favorable way possible.

Experienced Defense For Charges Involving Prescription Or Illegal Drugs

Today, police methods of gathering drugs and testing them are subject to heightened scrutiny. Police are human and make mistakes. Sometimes drug cases can be dismissed by way of a pretrial motion, due to an illegal search or improper testing procedures.

As a former assistant district attorney, Richard Mucci understands the proper procedures and protocols police are trained to use in cases involving drugs, and thus he is very capable of building an effective defense a judge or jury will understand. His specialized knowledge allows him to honestly advise clients about their rights and options. Clients can then freely make an informed decision whether to resolve their charge prior to trial or proceed to a trial.

Massachusetts' drug crimes involving such illegal narcotics as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, OxyContin, other prescription pills or steroids include:

  • Possession
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Distribution of a controlled substance
  • Trafficking
  • School zone/park zone

Penalties You Could Face From A Drug Charge

Certain drug crimes carry a minimum mandatory jail sentence even for first offenders, depending on the type of drug involved, the amount of drugs and the location of the arrest. Therefore, drug charges must be taken seriously. Attorney Richard Mucci can guide you or a loved one through the process. He has the ability and skill to win at trial or negotiate successfully with prosecutors a disposition by agreement.
