Drug Crimes

Drug offenses can carry severe penalties and are aggressively prosecuted throughout Arkansas. Certain drug offenses carry the possibility of a life sentence. Narcotics cases can be complex, as they often involve constitutional search and seizure issues, scientific and technical issues, witness credibility issues, and many other general evidentiary issues.

Mr. Wilkinson has extensive experience dealing with all types of drug crimes, big and small. Mr. Wilkinson has been to trial and dealt with confidential informants, local and statewide law enforcement, and the DEA from several states. Mr. Wilkinson has handled numerous drug cases including:

  • marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, ecstasy/MDMA, prescription drugs, steroids, and more
  • drug manufacturing, local drug trafficking, international and interstate drug trafficking, prescription drug fraud, delivery of drugs, drug possession, conspiracy in drug crimes, drug paraphernalia, and more

Often times an arrest is symptomatic of a more serious drug or substance abuse problem. If that is the case, Mr. Wilkinson works with experienced professionals and treatment facilities to get help for his clients so that they can address any substance abuse problems they may have. By addressing their underlying substance abuse issues, clients are often able to turn their arrest or conviction into a positive, life-changing event.

Criminal Defense Attorney Shane Wilkinson is not just a former prosecutor, but the former Chief Deputy Prosecutor of Benton County, Arkansas. Mr. Wilkinson understands how prosecutors and law enforcement will attempt to build a case against you. Mr. Wilkinson will thoroughly examine every piece of evidence, including the procedures followed by police when obtaining that evidence, in order to most effectively present a defense.
