Types of Drug Crimes We Handle & Potential Penalties

Drug crimes are charged as either a felony or misdemeanor offense. Each drug crime carries its own potential penalties depending on a number of factors. The judge assigned to your case may consider the alleged offense, what type of illegal substance was involved, how much of the illegal substance was present, and if there were special circumstances. They will also take into account whether or not you have prior convictions.

Our firm is capable of representing a wide variety of drug crimes, including:

  • Sale
  • Trafficking
  • Cultivation
  • Possession
  • Distribution
  • Paraphernalia
  • Manufacturing
  • Transportation
  • Possession with intent

The exact consequences you could face depend on the factors mentioned previously and in which category the crime is classified. For example, a misdemeanor drug offense may bring fines of up to $150. However, a first-degree felony could bring fines of up to $20,000 and 3 to 10 years in prison. In addition to criminal penalties, there are other legal consequences to having a criminal record. This includes difficulty in obtaining financial assistance, finding a place to live, or securing a job.

How Long Do You Go to Jail for Possession?

Possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) in Ohio can result in serious penalties include jail time depending on the type and amount of drug found in your possession. For example, the possession of a Schedule I or II CDS in the bulk amount can result in nine months in jail up to 36 months in prison, while possession of a Schedule III, IV or V CDS in the bulk amount can result in six months in jail and up to 18 months in prison.
