DuPage County Attorney Experienced With Charges of Operating a Meth Lab

If you have been arrested for operating a meth lab, you can expect little sympathy from a judge or jury. The production of meth in makeshift labs can put innocent people at risk, including children who live in the home as well as public safety workers who respond to fires and explosions.

At the Law Office of Philip R. Nathe, we defend people charged with meth and other drug crimes. With more than 30 years of experience in the DuPage County criminal justice system, defense attorney Philip R. Nathe has a solid understanding of how to mount an effective defense for people charged with operating a meth lab. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Meth Manufacturing and Precursor Chemicals

One of the ways that the U.S. government seeks to control meth production is to make it illegal to possess precursor chemicals such as pseudoephedrine and anhydrous ammonia. Pseudoephedrine is contained in over-the-counter cold medicines, and some of the ways people obtain large quantities of these drugs include smurfing (making multiple purchases at different stores) and shoplifting. Possession of precursor chemicals is a felony.

There are defenses to charges of possession of precursor chemicals. For example, if you are arrested with cold medications containing pseudoephedrine, police must prove that you intended to use the chemicals to manufacture meth.

Defense attorney Philip R. Nathe has experience as a former assistant state's attorney prosecuting a range of drug and other crimes. Mr. Nathe will work hard to help you obtain the best possible outcome of your case.
