Types of Drug Crimes

Humphrey & Thompson can help you with all types of drug cases, including those that involve:

Possession is generally not as serious as other drug crimes. The penalties differ depending on factors like quantity, conspiracy, location, firearms and the type of drug possessed. Possession can be a misdemeanor or a felony.

If you are accused of selling controlled substances or illegally obtained pharmaceutical drugs, you will be facing a serious criminal charge. Even being found with a large amount of drugs in your possession can point to the intent to sell or distribute, with severe penalties, often including time spent in state prison. If you are charged with sales, you need an experienced attorney to fight for you.

Any time a large amount of drugs is found by the police, the charges will be bumped up to something much more serious than mere possession. A large amount of any illegal drug can result in being charged with intent to distribute or sell. If it is determined that these drugs were intended for distribution, you could be facing felony charges that can land you in prison.

What are the Penalties for Drug Crimes?

The severity of your charges, as well as the level of punishment you will receive if convicted, depends upon the type of drug, the amount of drug, the location (near schools or parks), and your previous criminal record. These factors will all be considered in deciding the charges and consequences you will face. If you are convicted of a drug crime you could be facing lengthy jail or prison sentences, large fines, probation and more.
