Tenacious Defense against Drug Manufacturing Charges—Arizona Drug Manufacturing Lawyer

Because of tighter immigration and importation laws enforced by Homeland Security, there has been a growing number of arrests for the cultivation and manufacture of illegal drugs or narcotics.  Law enforcement authorities have become extremely vigilant about investigating and arresting those involved in both drug manufacturing, such as in meth labs, as well as the cultivation of marijuana.  Prosecutors at both the state and federal law treat these drug offenses far more seriously than simple possession. If you are arrested and charged with manufacturing drugs in Arizona, Phoenix, Tempe or anywhere in Arizona, it is essential that you not speak to the police or prosecutor and assert your right to an attorney.  Dianne Sullivan provides zealous defense to all drug manufacturing and cultivation charges based on years of experience as a Maricopa County prosecutor.

Although the increased control of ephedrine, which is an essential ingredient in manufacturing methamphetamine, has slowed the spread of meth labs, law enforcement authorities are still very diligent about investigating potential manufacturing operations and aggressively prosecuting those accused of manufacturing drugs.  Ecstasy is another drug commonly manufactured in small home labs that law enforcement expressly targets.  These crimes carry very serious penalties because they can affect a large number of people in the state.  A first-time offense of manufacturing of methamphetamine in Arizona can result in a 15 year term of incarceration in state prison.

Law enforcement also frequently targets marijuana grow houses.  Drug enforcement authorities know that electricity use patterns in residences serving as grow houses are abnormally high. Utility companies will even notify law enforcement authorities when they see unusually high electricity use that is indicative of a grow house.  Even if you have a small number of marijuana plants, you may face serious penalties under Arizona law.  Ms. Sullivan may pursue a wide range of defenses in your Arizona drug manufacturing or cultivation case including:

  • Unlawful searches in violation of the Fourth Amendment (Unlawful search and seizure)
  • Illegal surveillance or wiretapping
  • Unreliable witnesses
  • Miranda violations
  • Insufficient evidence to prove a drug manufacturing criminal offense
  • The operation belongs to a third party
