Casper Drug Charge Defense Lawyer

State and federal law enforcement agencies devote great resources to drug interdiction. Even routine traffic stops and domestic disturbances are used as an excuse to search for illegal drugs.

Too many citizens investigated for drug possession allow police and prosecutors to trample their constitutional rights. The Law Office of Hampton Young, PC, can draw the line to protect your freedom and your future. We know the law, the justice system and what is at stake for our clients.

Experienced Drug Crime Defense

Attorney Hampton M. Young Jr. is a former deputy attorney general who has handled drug cases from both sides. He understands law enforcement methods and how the prosecution builds its case. As a result, he can skillfully counter the government's case to avoid a conviction or mitigate the punishment.

Our Casper law firm represents the accused in Natrona County, Converse County and surrounding jurisdictions of eastern Wyoming. We frequently represent nonresidents arrested on drug charges while passing through Wyoming.

We handle all state and federal drug charges, including:

  • Possession of felony quantities of marijuana
  • Possession of controlled substances (cocaine, meth, heroin)
  • Possession of prescription-only medications
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Transporting drugs (on the interstate)
  • Drug trafficking and conspiracy
  • Related charges such as weapon offenses

Drug prosecutions commonly stem from sting operations or long-term investigations. We examine all possible defenses regarding Fourth Amendment violations (traffic stops, search warrants), as well as the reliability of informants or other evidence connecting the drugs to the accused. Casting doubt on the government's case may pave the way for alternatives, such as Drug Court or deferred prosecution, that avoid prison and a felony record.

Mr. Young regularly intervenes with the U.S. Attorney's Office in federal drug cases. He is familiar with federal court procedure and federal sentencing guidelines, which proves crucial in advocating effectively in plea negotiations or at trial.
