Phoenix Possession of Methamphetamine Defense Attorney

Dangerous Drug Crimes

Possession of Dangerous Drugs is prohibited by Arizona law per Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3407(A)(1).  Possession of methamphetamine is specifically prohibited as methamphetamine is defined as a dangerous drug pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3401.

Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3407(A)(1) provides that a person shall not knowingly possess a dangerous drug.

Possessing methamphetamine in Arizona is a class four felony.  A felony conviction carries with it a substantial punishment.  If you are convicted of possessing methamphetamine in violation of the Possession of Dangerous Drugs statute, Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3407, you may be sentenced to prison for between 1 year and 3.75 years, even if you’ve never been convicted of any prior offense.  If you are convicted of possessing methamphetamine in violation of the Possession of Dangerous Drugs statute, Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3407, you may also be sentenced to a term of probation of up to 4 years.

If you have prior felony convictions, a violation of the Possession of Dangerous Drugs statute, Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3407, for possessing methamphetamine, could result in mandatory prison sentences of 2.25 years and 15 years, depending on your prior convictions.

Unlike many other drug offenses, possession of methamphetamine in violation of the Possession of Dangerous Drugs statute, Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3407, is not covered by Proposition 200.
