Omaha Lawyer for Out-of-State Residents Who Are Arrested on Drug Charges in Nebraska

York County drug charges defense lawyer for out of state drivers

Criminal Defense Attorney for Transporting Cannabis and Other Drugs Through Nebraska

Getting arrested on drug charges is a serious and stressful experience regardless of the circumstances. When you are charged with a state or federal drug crime in a state other than where you live, the fear and uncertainty are amplified. This scenario is playing out more frequently in Nebraska as law enforcement targets drivers on Interstate 80, hoping to net another massive haul of legally purchased marijuana from Colorado or another state. 

Out-of-state drivers or visitors arrested in Nebraska need a proven criminal defense attorney with decades of experience representing clients from across the country. Olsen Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O. attorney Tom Olsen is a Former Assistant State Attorney General and Assistant Omaha City Prosecutor who has successfully defended thousands of individuals charged with drug crimes, from New York all the way to California. As Nebraska's premier drug defense lawyer, Attorney Olsen will fight for your rights and your future.

Drug Arrests in Nebraska

Penalties for drug offenses depend on the weight confiscated at the time of arrest and indicators that may suggest intent to distributedrug trafficking, or drug manufacturing. Cannabis punishments are also now decided according to the type of product involved. While possession of "flower" marijuana up to 1 pound is a misdemeanor, any amount of concentrated THC in the form of hash oil or edibles is a felony charge on the same level as cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin. Production, distribution, or possession with intent to sell marijuana can bring up to 20 years in prison, while the same charges for hard drugs carry up to life imprisonment. 

With more than 30 years of trial experience, Attorney Tom Olsen has achieved favorable outcomes for clients charged with everything from simple possession to intended distribution of hundreds of pounds of marijuana. When you entrust him with your case, he will conduct a complete investigation to determine the best course of action.

Drug Defense Strategies

Attorney Tom Olsen aggressively pursues justice for victims of highly questionable police practices that lead to drug dog searches and illegal search and seizure. Minor traffic offenses committed by drivers of rental vehicles or cars with out-of-state license plates allow an officer to make a subjective determination of suspicion after pulling the vehicle over. Attorney Olsen is adept at finding faults and discrepancies with these initial allegations and other law enforcement tactics which make an arrest unlawful.

Regardless of the drug charge you face, you can trust Attorney Olsen will deliver an elite-level defense to seek dropped or reduced charges. As an out-of-state resident, you can also expect consistent communication so you are apprised of all information and scheduling related to your case.
