Effectively Representing You On Drug Possession Charges
Being accused of drug possession has damaging effects. The charges and penalties if convicted can vary from misdemeanors with monetary fines or probation to felonies with full-blown prison sentences. First-degree controlled substance possession has a penalty of up to 30 years of incarceration and a million-dollar fine in Minnesota.
The penalties depend on the type of drug, the amount of the drug, and whether the drug was being manufactured or offered for sale. More than the penalty itself is how having a drug crime conviction on your record will affect practically everything about your future.
Consequences of drug possession charges in Minnesota can include:
- Loss of professional/occupational licenses
- Loss of current job
- Difficulty obtaining future employment
- Loss of the right to own firearms
- Minimized chances of securing housing
- Loss of college financial aid
- Change in immigration status with possible deportation
