Douglas County Distribution Lawyer
Arrested for Drug Distribution in West Georgia?
While all drug crimes are considered serious, some carry more substantial consequences than others. Possession, for example, can be applied to individuals who have less than one ounce of marijuana, and is a misdemeanor that may result in up to one year in jail. Manufacturing, sales, or distribution does not have as much flexibility as possession because of the implied depth-of-involvement in the drug trade.
hose who are found guilty of distribution can expect the full weight of the law and legal system and should speak with a Douglas County criminal defense attorney who is not afraid to stand up to these charges.
The penalties for distribution depend heavily on factors including the particular schedule the illegal drug is classified in, and the quantity of drugs involved. Other key involvements also come into play, such as prior conviction or the location of the crime in proximity to schools or parks.
A first-time offense can leave defendants facing anywhere from 5 to 30 years in prison, with 2-time offenders in danger of suffering through 10 to 40 years behind bars with the potential for life in prison for Schedule I and II drugs. The outcome of the case will depend largely on the evidence that has been gathered, the focus of the prosecution and the skill of the defense attorney.
