Drug abuse is still a very prevalent and dangerous crime throughout New York. In order to protect our city and its citizens, district attorneys can be unforgiving when prosecuting drug crimes.
Penalties for conviction often vary greatly, depending on:
- The type of substance involved
- The quantity of drugs involved
- Whether sale or intent to sell is alleged
- Whether guns are seized along with narcotics
- Whether the client has any prior convictions and, if so, whether any were felonies or violent felonies
- Whether the client receives drug treatment
Your best chance to achieve a favorable outcome involves retaining an experienced criminal defense attorney.
