Omaha Drug Possession with Intent to Distribute Defense Attorney in Nebraska

Buffalo County drug dealing defense lawyer

Douglas County Criminal Lawyer for Marijuana or Drug Dealing Charges

While a drug possession charge can carry serious consequences, the severity of a possession with intent to distribute allegation in Nebraska cannot be overstated. The state's criminal justice system provides leniency for some possession cases, including the National Safety Council, Nebraska's Diversion Program that often benefits first-time offenders. That is rarely the case with intent to distribute charges, which the court views as drug dealing.

Any offense related to drug trafficking and drug manufacturing requires the experienced and skilled legal representation provided by Olsen Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O. With Attorney Tom Olsen, you will have a Former Assistant State Attorney General and Assistant Omaha City Prosecutor with more than 30 years of trial experience on your side. As Nebraska's premier drug charges defense attorney, Attorney Olsen has successfully defended thousands of clients, including in-state and out-of-state residents charged with transporting legally purchased marijuana after a traffic stop on Interstate 80.

Intent to Distribute Charges in Nebraska

For cannabis, this results in a Class IIA felony charge, with up to 20 years in prison. Punishments escalate for any sale or attempted sale to a person under 18 years old, on or within 1,000 feet of school grounds (elementary through college), or within 100 feet of a public pool or youth center. 

Conviction penalties for intent to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, or concentrated THC (hash oil, marijuana edibles) include:

  • Fewer than 10 grams: Class II felony, minimum sentence of one year of imprisonment, maximum of 50 years;
  • 10 to 28 grams: Class ID felony, minimum sentence of three years' imprisonment, maximum of 50 years;
  • 28 to 140 grams: Class IC felony, minimum of five years' imprisonment, maximum of 50 years;
  • Over 140 grams: Class IB felony, minimum of 20 years' imprisonment, maximum of life.

With the harshness of these punishments, choosing the right attorney is one of the most critical decisions you will ever make. Attorney Tom Olsen's extensive defense experience handling possession with intent cases includes clients found with hundreds of pounds of marijuana. When you entrust him to handle your case, you immediately have an aggressive advocate who will fight tenaciously for a favorable resolution.

Unlawful Police Search

With a complete investigation of your case, if law enforcement violated your rights, including an unreasonable traffic stop followed by a drug dog search and illegal search and seizure, Attorney Tom Olsen will find out and demand dropped charges. He will formulate the best possible course of action, and throughout your legal proceedings, you can trust his experience, aggressive approach, and negotiation skills with prosecutors in reaching an agreeable outcome.
