Drug Crimes

Minnesota Drug Crimes Attorney

Minnesota is becoming increasingly strict regarding the prosecution of and sentencing guidelines for drug crimes. Even a first time offense can lead to serious consequences.

At Villaume & Schiek, P.A., we have represented many business leaders, professionals and their adult children who have been charged with a drug crime. Attorney Villaume has been a criminal defense attorney since 1979 and is a frequent lecturer and CLE (continuing legal education) instructor. If you have been charged with a drug crime, you can trust our law firm for experienced representation for the following charges:

  • Possession and possession with intent to sell
  • Drug sale or distribution
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Drug trafficking

Concerns About Drug Crime Charges

A drug charge can result from a number of different activities. An informant could set up a controlled buy. A traffic stop for a faulty taillight could result in a search and seizure. A DUI is a frequent lead-in to a search and seizure for illegal substances.

Most people with a drug charge are interested in two main goals:

  • Keeping out of jail
  • Protecting their job

One of the ways our attorneys can accomplish the two goals above is by being proactive. We work very hard to prevent charges from being filed. We also stress drug treatment, before being court ordered, as a way to lessen any consequences.
