Under Arizona law, most drug crimes are charged as felonies. Over ambitious prosecutors will sentence even most first and second time simple possession drug offenders to mandatory probation. If not sentenced to probation you may qualify for alternative sentencing programs like deferred prosecution, drug court, and diversion. These programs allow you the opportunity to clear your criminal record after completing the conditions of your program or sentence.

The Law Offices of Howard A. Snader, LLC will also advise you about the availability of house arrest, home monitoring, community service, substance abuse treatment in lieu of jail time, work release, and other alternative sentencing options.
