The penalties you face
In addition to penalties like jail and fines, a drug crime conviction can affect your personal and professional life. You could lose your job, have trouble getting employment in the future and may have difficulty getting accepted into a university or college. Additionally, you face the disappointment of friends and family. A criminal law attorney at our firm can work hard to protect your future.
The legal penalties you face for a drug crime depend on the following three factors:
- The type of drug: The charges brought against you will vary depending on the type of substance police accuse you of possessing. For example, possession of marijuana is not as serious a crime as possession of cocaine, heroin or methamphetamine.
- What you did with the drug: Knowledgeable Biloxi attorneys can further explain to you that certain drug crime activities carry harsher penalties than others. For example, possessing marijuana is not as serious a crime as selling or trafficking marijuana.
- The quantity of the substance: Lastly, the quantity of drugs police accuse you of possessing greatly determines how severe the penalties are against you. A small amount of marijuana is not a serious crime. However, if you have several ounces or pounds of marijuana, you face felony charges and a long prison sentence.
