York And Harrisburg Drug Crimes Defense Attorney

We provide drug related criminal defense for Cumberland, Dauphin, and York County PA

Drug Crimes can be as seemingly simple as being buzzed and getting caught or have larger complexities involving overlapping agencies, undisclosed protected witnesses, or even feature police stings resembling entrapment. The consequences of a conviction on Drug Charges in Pennsylvania can be severe. Even the possession of paraphernalia can get someone 30 days in jail plus a substantial fine. A variety of charges fall into the category of ‘drug crimes’ that I mount a tenacious defense against. If you are charged with a drug related offense, contact a drug crime defense attorney at the Law Office of Roy Galloway, LLC to protect your rights.

‘Drug Crimes’ involve illegal controlled substances such as:

  • Cocaine
  • Crack
  • Ecstasy
  • Heroin
  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Different ‘Drug Crime’ Charges

Under the Influence

Police and prosecutors in Pennsylvania have taken to charging illicit drug users and addicts with ‘under the influence charges’ that are not as specific as health and safety codes in other states, but do relate to a proximity of schools, hunting, fishing, boating, and driving. These charges can be as or more severe than a (DUI) if someone is caught Driving Under the Influence of Drugs (DUID) and the consequences can include jail time, fines, and court ordered drug rehabilitation.


Having a controlled substance on you meant for personal use is illegal. Penalties for a possession charge depend upon the quantity and type of drug the defendant is charged with possessing.


It doesn’t matter if you were just growing some green, cooking up a batch of meth, or sprouting peyote for your next sweat lodge event, any of these charges carry potentially severe consequences.


Delivering drugs to others constitutes trafficking and does not need to involve a sale. According to Pennsylvania laws a trafficker can potentially receive years in prison.


Possession With an Intent to Deliver (PWID) a controlled substance qualifies for a distribution charge and is an automatic felony. However, the prosecutor must prove the defendant acquired a drug and had the intention of distribution and delivery.
