Drug Possession Charges? You Need An Aggressive Defense Attorney

If you’ve been arrested for possessing drugs or drug materials, you need to call an aggressive defense attorney who understands all the variables and specializes in drug-related cases.

You can get arrested on drug possession charges in New York if you possess some types of controlled substances (illegal possession) or illegal drugs. There are several variables that are used to determine which charges you’ll face if you’re arrested for possession of drugs.

One variable has to do with what you intend to do with the drug. If you possess with the intent to sell, you could be charged with a class D felony to a class B felony. However, intent to sell isn’t the only reason you could face a possession charge.

The level of possession charge in New York also depends on the type of drug and the amount you’re caught with. For example, if you’re arrested with one gram (or more) of a hallucinogen, you could be charged with a class B felony. If you are in possession of a hallucinogen that weighs 625 milligrams or more, you might be charged with a class A-II felony. The difference between these two charges is minimum 1 year for a class B felony and minimum 3 years for a class A-II felony. If you’re convicted of the latter, an extra two years in prison is substantial.
