  • Possession of Drugs With Intent to Distribute
  • Sales/Distribution of Drugs
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

Penalties for Drug Convictions

The penalties for being convicted of a drug crime depend on the specific facts and charges of a case.  Depending on the type of drug, the amount, the circumstances of the case, and the criminal history of the defendant, the penalty can range from Diversion or Probation all the way up to decades in Prison.  You can also lose your money, property, government benefits, or even be deported in some situations.


Things That Can Effect Your Sentence include:

  • Amount of Drug
  • Type of Drug 
  • Location (were the drugs near a school?)
  • Did You Have a Prescription?
  • Immigration Status
  • Mandatory Minimum Sentence Laws
  • Special Repeat Offender Rules
