Drug Crime Penalties in New York

There are a range of penalties that are imposed in drug crime cases, based upon the type of drug, the quantity and the criminal record of the accused. Generally, the sale of any amount of a controlled substance will carry far heavier penalties than possession, but this is not always the case. If you are found to be in possession of a narcotic in a quantity believed to be for distribution, you will face a longer prison sentence. If you are convicted of selling two ounces of heroin, cocaine, morphine or even marijuana, you could get years in state prison if convicted.

If it is alleged that a minor was involved, or that the crime took place in a park, near a school or similar location, the penalties will be increased. Whether you are victim of entrapment and accused of selling drugs to a narcotics officer, were caught with prescription drugs without a valid prescription, or had a few marijuana plants or are accused of involvement in a grow house operation, or meth manufacturing, we can help.
