Asserting Your Rights And Protecting Your Future

Marijuana Offenses Are Serious In Idaho. Our Firm Can Protect Your Rights.

Marijuana is a widely used drug that is increasingly being legalized in states around the country. However, Idaho is among a handful of states that continue to outlaw the drug in nearly all forms. At Martens Law Office, P.C., we understand how easy it is to be charged with a marijuana offense and how consequential a conviction can be.

Whenever one of our clients is charged with marijuana possession or possession of spice, attorney Jared Martens works hard to get the drug charges reduced. A ticket for marijuana possession is a misdemeanor offense. Consequences of a conviction include loss of ability to get student loans, sentences requiring up to 100 hours of community service, and the obligation to post up to $500 as a bond.

You May Have Numerous Options To Combat Possession Charges

A skilled criminal defense lawyer with more than 20 years of experience, Mr. Martens has successfully employed strategies in defense of clients accused of drug possession in Idaho. Depending on the circumstances of the charges, he may consider challenging the district attorney’s case, citing illegal search and seizure, lack of reasonable cause for a traffic stop or other breach of law enforcement procedures.

Sentencing Options May Include Drug Court Or Substance Abuse Rehab Programs

Mr. Martens may recommend a plea bargain, where the suspect forfeits bond for court costs, and charges are reduced to possession of drug paraphernalia, or dropped altogether. In a case involving a guilty plea, he will request alternative sentencing options such as drug court or a rehab program. The specific options available and the recommended course of action will depend on the details of your case.
