Possession of illegal drugs and controlled substances with the intent to sell or distribute is a much more serious matter than simple possession for personal use. Those convicted of selling or distributing more than 5 ounces of cocaine or heroin face potential penalties of up to 20 years in prison and financial penalties of up to $500,000.
Penalties for distributing between half an ounce and 5 ounces of cocaine or heroin are punishable by 5 to 10 years in prison and fines up to $150,000. If you are convicted of distributing less than half an ounce, you face 3 to 5 years in prison and fines up to $75,000.
Controlled substances in the state are classified according to a schedule; the most dangerous and addictive drugs result in more severe charges, penalties, and sentencing. Included in drug distribution charges are those connected with distributing illegally obtained prescription drugs through prescription fraud. In any drug sale, distribution, or trafficking charges, you should have the benefit of aggressive and comprehensive defense representation.
