Defense Against Criminal Charges for Ecstasy Possession
Ecstasy is an illegal hallucinogenic drug manufactured by condensing methylenedioxymethamphetamine, one of the primary active ingredients in depression medications such as Prozac. It goes by the street names of E, Adam, X or empathy.
Although it has been around for decades, there has been a marked increase in the number of felony drug charges filed against people caught in possession of ecstasy.
If you are under investigation for drug crimes or if you have already been charged with possession of ecstasy, you are facing serious consequences. Do not talk with the police or with friends or relatives about this until you have talked to an attorney.
The Stakes Are High — Get a Strong Defense
First-offense possession of ecstasy will mean at least a third-degree felony charge that could carry a minimum sentence of three years in state prison for conviction. A second possession charge usually draws a second-degree felony charge. A third offense – or more – will result in a first-degree felony charge and a possible lifetime prison sentence.
