Drug Possession

Drug Crime Attorney in NYC

Illegal possession of a controlled substance is a serious crime that may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony in New York.

Factors Affecting Drug Possession Charges in NY

The severity of charges imposed on a defendant primarily depends upon the amount and the type of the substance involved.

If the defendant has any past record of drug crime conviction, then the charges may be more severe. If the crime is committed in proximity to a school zone or if a firearm is used in connection with dealing drugs or if a minor was involved in the drug crime, then the charges may be even more harsh. These additional violations can turn a simple possession charge into a serious case possibly resulting in several years of prison and hefty fines.

If you have been accused of a drug possession crime, hire a criminal defense attorney to handle your case and protect your constitutional rights.
