DuPage County Possession with Intent to Deliver Lawyers
Zealously Fighting Illinois Drug Charges
While anyone arrested for a drug crime in Illinois is exposed to the potential for tough sentences, the penalties for intent to deliver and manufacturing carry far more severe sentences than simple possession. Although you should not speak to the police if you are arrested for possession with intent to deliver (i.e., give away or sale) drugs, the charge will often be based on the quantity of drugs. The police and prosecutors will contend that the amount of a drug in your possession exceeds an amount that is only for personal use.

Possession with Intent to Deliver & Manufacture of a Controlled Substance in Illinois
Under Illinois law, possession with intent to deliver and the manufacture of a controlled substance both constitute a felony offense. The severity of the punishment imposed for a conviction depends on the nature of the substance, the quantity, the defendant’s prior criminal history and the location of the alleged drug offense.
Challenging Unlawful Search and Seizures in Drug Cases
Our DuPage County drug crimes lawyers at Ramsell & Kunowski, L.L.C. carefully review police conduct in searches of your home, vehicle or office. When the police fail to observe proper procedures when obtaining warrants, executing searches or conducting warrantless searches, we might be able to seek exclusion of the drugs and other evidence obtained in an unlawful search. If the drugs and other seized evidence is excluded, this might provide a basis for seeking dismissal of the charges against you.
