Like most criminal charges, the law centers around intent in drug crime cases. Intent to sell or deliver drugs can technically lead to the same maximum penalties as those who actually sell or deliver illegal narcotics in Southfield. According to the text of the legislation, anyone who manufactures, creates, delivers, or intends to manufacture, create, or deliver a controlled substance can face felony conviction. The specific penalties faced will depend greatly on the type of drug dealt/sold, and the amount possessed or delivered.
In drug dealing cases, there will be additional financial penalties on the line. Prosecutors can push to have your money or property seized, provided they can prove a connection to illegal narcotics activity. You could lose your assets, including your car and house, if you are convicted of selling or dealing drugs. With so much at stake, you need to work with the best possible attorney, one who understands that you need to be protected on multiple fronts if you want to avoid jail time, fines, and other lasting penalties. Grabel & Associates is ready now to begin fighting for you, no matter what the specifics of your case may be.
For most drugs, the specific penalties faced will correspond with the Schedule of the drug. Some narcotics, including marijuana, have special legislation attached to sales and dealing, so it is crucial to contact a lawyer to find out how your unique case may be affected by Southfield drug law.
For Schedule 1 and 2 drugs, delivery will lead to up to life in prison for large amounts over a kilogram, along with a one million dollar fine, with up to 30 years behind bars and a $500,000 fine possible for cases involving more than 450 grams but less than a kilo. Up to 20 years can result for any other amount, with a $250,000 fine for amounts over 50 grams and $25,000 in fines for lesser amounts.
Schedule 3 narcotics dealing can lead to 7 years behind bars and a $10,000 fine, while Schedule 4 drug sale can result in 4 years behind bars and a $2,000 fine. Selling Schedule 5 drugs can result in 2 years behind bars and a $2,000 fine. Of course, with any drug dealing conviction, asset forfeiture, travel bans, and other serious penalties are likely. Work with an attorney to protect against all the negative effects of a drug crime conviction.
