THE CONSEQUENCES ARE SEVERE
Depending on the facts particular to a case, a conviction for possession or sale of a controlled substance, narcotic drug, or marihuana means more than just having a criminal record. The additional penalties for even a misdemeanor may include:
Incarceration (jail) for up to one year
Probation for up to three years
Fine of up to $1000
Seizure and Forfeiture of real and personal property
Seizure and Forfeiture of real and personal property thought to be acquired by committing such offense
The penalties for a felony conviction are much greater.
DeVerna Law has the experience you need to navigate through these cases and
can help you get the best resolution possible.
