The penalties for a drug possession conviction can vary greatly. Drug possession may be classified as a misdemeanor or felony crime. The penalties vary depending on the type and quantity of drug, and whether you intended to sell the drug or not. Penalties may include jail or prison time, fines and probation. Additionally, a drug crime conviction is a mark on your criminal record — affecting everything from where you live to where you work.
At the Law Office of Errol H. Stambler, I take drug possession charges very seriously. If you have been charged with possession of an illegal drug, I urge you to contact my law office as soon as possible to discuss your legal options. There may be options available in your case that you never knew existed — options that may reduce penalties or help you avoid a conviction altogether.
