Defending Dealing MDMA

MDMA is a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance. Dealing Ecstasy can range from a Level 6 felony all the way up to a Level 2 felony depending on the weight of the drug and whether an enhancing circumstance applies. 

There are several ways an experienced criminal attorney can attack a dealing charge. Can the State prove the intent to deal? If a controlled buy took place, is the informant credible? Are there gaps in the evidence? Did a search take place without a warrant? If you are charged with dealing MDMA, our criminal defense lawyers will aggressively attack the State’s case. With law offices in Lafayette and Fort Wayne, we defend drug charges statewide.

Defending Possession of MDMA

Ecstasy is MDMA in the pill form. MDMA in powder form is commonly called Molly. Possession of MDMA in either form is a Class A misdemeanor, but elevates to a Level 6 felony if certain enhancing circumstances apply. Defending possession charges requires analyzing every detail of your arrest.

  • Did police have a legal reason to detain you?
  • Did an illegal warrant less search occur?
  • Were you advised of your right to speak with an attorney prior to consenting to a search?
  • If Ecstasy was found in your house, apartment, or dorm room, can the State prove constructive possession?

Our attorneys challenge every aspect of the State’s case. If your rights were violated, we will defend you aggressively.
