How A Conviction Impacts Your Life

Most sentences for drug possession depend on several factors, including what substance was in your possession, the amount of drugs on your person, and your criminal history. If the police find you in possession of a controlled substance, you can face felony charges. The consequences for first-time offenses are as follows:

  • Jail time ranging from six months to two years, depending upon the Schedule classification of drugs in your possession
  • Fines up to $5,000 for Schedule I and II narcotics or $1,000 for most other substances
  • Months or years of probation and other criminal justice system oversight

A conviction can put you at a major disadvantage during future family law disputes and prevent you from meeting your personal goals. A strong defense and thorough exploration of pretrial options can be vital.
