Penalties for Selling Drugs
Any time a person is charged with bringing illegal substances to other people, it is considered a serious offense. The selling or distribution of drugs is a felony that can result in severe consequences lasting anywhere from three years to life imprisonment.
Additionally, you face the difficulty of having a criminal record following you around, making it more difficult to obtain housing, employment, and loan opportunities. An effective criminal defense lawyer can help you exonerate yourself and avoid suffering further consequences.
The penalties for drug sale charges vary depending on the following:
- Type of drug
- Amount of drugs sold
- Previous charges
- Location of distribution
- Employing a minor
- Distributing drugs to a minor
Felony Drug Crimes in California
Controlled substances are categorized by schedules with marijuana within Schedule I, cocaine in Schedule II, and anabolic steroids in Schedule III. Selling of controlled substances can result in a felony with a three to five year sentence.
Under California law, sentences could increase if drugs are sold to a minor or if selling occurs within 1,000 feet of schools or playgrounds in operation. If you are involved in the hiring of minors or selling controlled substances to minors, you may face 3-9 years in state prison.
