Experienced DuPage County Ecstasy Defense Attorneys
Ecstasy is a drug that is often associated with the party scene. Most ecstasy offenders are young people, and often it is a first offense. Even so, possession of ecstasy is a very serious criminal charge as possession of any controlled substance in Illinois is a felony. If you are charged with ecstasy possession or any other ecstasy-related offense, you need an attorney who is skilled in handling drug charges. At Ramsell & Associates, LLC, we focus on minimizing the negative consequences our clients face both in the immediate future and the long run.
Successfully Defending Against Ecstasy Charges
A conviction on an ecstasy charge can result in serious prison time depending on the amount of ecstasy allegedly in your possession. Even in the lowest quantity—less than 15 grams—the charge is a Class 4 felony punishable by up to 3 years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines. With proper defense representation, however, it is possible to avoid the harshest consequences of these charges. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, you may have grounds to question whether or not the police had probable cause to search for the drug. This can lead to a dismissal of charges. Our attorneys are skilled in Constitutional arguments and vigorously fight for our clients’ rights.
Minimizing Consequences for Ecstasy Possession
Having a criminal conviction on your record at a young age can severely impact your future. It can interfere with your education, your career ambitions and your ability to obtain housing. We understand how important it is to avoid a permanent dark mark on your record and pursue every possible option for preventing a criminal conviction for our clients. For first time offenders, drug court and first offender probation are ways to keep a conviction off your record or have a conviction expunged.
