Drug Crimes

     We can help you fight your drug charge.

     The penalty for crimes involving controlled substances in Missouri varies widely, depending on a number of circumstances.  These include things such as the nature of the substance involved, the quantity of the substance involved, the specific intent of the suspect, and even the criminal background of the individual alleged to have committed the offense.  Punishment ranges may range from  a class D misdemeanor for simple possession of marijuana < 10 grams, all the way up to a class A felony for some classes of drug distribution.  Our firm has experience dealing with misdemeanor and felony drug charges including:

  • Drug Trafficking / Distribution

  • Drug Manufacturing

  • Prescription drug fraud

  • Drug possession

     Working from our office in Hillsboro, Jefferson County, Missouri, Wegge & Casey, P.C. can help you if you face these charges.  Our team of attorneys includes the former elected Prosecuting Attorney of Jefferson County.  We have tried numerous drug cases over the years, both before a jury and to the bench, and our breadth of experience enables us to craft a wholistic defense.


     This defense must include a thorough review of all the evidence in the case, which the prosecution is required to turn over under the rules of discovery.  It also includes evaluation of potential pre-trial motions such as suppression of evidence and due process violations.  In many instances, it will include negotiations with the prosecuting attorney to secure the best possible outcome given the facts of the particular case.
