Windham County Marijuana Charges Lawyer

Fighting to Defend Your Rights & Reputation

While marijuana has been legalized in some states, Connecticut still maintains strict laws against the possession, sale, trafficking, and cultivation of marijuana. Some marijuana charges are civil violations, punishable only by fines, while others are felonies that carry lengthy prison sentences.

If you have been charged with a marijuana-related crime in Connecticut, our Windham County drug crimes attorney can provide you with the effective legal defense representation you need. Whether that means filing and securing a diversionary program for you on a simple misdemeanor marijuana possession charge or going to trial on a sales or distribution charge, we are prepared to effectively defend you. Jerome Paun has the legal experience necessary for fighting drug charges in Willimantic and throughout Eastern Connecticut.

Marijuana Civil Violations

In 2011, Connecticut decriminalized possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana. Such possession is now considered a civil violation, punishable by a fine, rather than a criminal offense punishable by a jail sentence. Nonetheless, any violation on your record can result in future problems like difficulty finding or maintaining employment. Our defense law firm can help you understand your rights and provide you with the effective defense representation you need.

Serious Marijuana Charges

Possession of more than a half ounce of marijuana is still illegal. Other marijuana crimes such as cultivation, sale, and distribution are felony offenses and could result in lengthy prison sentences.

Mandatory minimum sentences apply if you were caught in possession or control of marijuana within 1,500 feet of elementary or secondary school property, or an identified child day care center. Selling marijuana to a minor or employing a minor to sell marijuana may result in another serious felony charge of risk of injury to a minor.

Whatever type of marijuana charges you face, our law firm has the skill and experience to defend you.
