Drug Possession Charge

Even if you are not physically in possession of drugs, you may still face charges. For example, if you are in a car or a room with drugs, you can be charged with possession. You may not even know the drugs are there, but the police may still arrest you. Charges may still be brought against you. It is important to seek legal counsel.

Drug Possession Charge Penalties

Any person facing a possession of a controlled substance charge may be facing jail time. Except for marijuana, which is punished less severely, possession of four grams or more of an illegal drug is considered level a level one trafficking violation. The penalty for a conviction of this crime is a mandatory minimum of one year, with up to six years in prison.

Possessing 14 grams or more, but less than 28 of an illegal substance can get you a mandatory minimum of two years, up to fifteen. Although no sale took place, the law allows for the prosecutor to argue that trafficking is implied due to the quantity of drugs.
