Ramifications for Drug Convictions

Drug crime convictions can have serious legal ramifications.

Sentences for Arizona Drug Crimes – What You Need to Know

In Arizona, drug crimes are covered by state and federal laws. The courts in Arizona will consider the following factors in determining the sentence for a drug crime:

  • Type of Drug
    If it is a Federal Case, The Controlled Substances Act classifies drugs into penalty groups. These penalty groups range from 1 to 5, with 1 being the most serious. Cocaine for example would be a group 1 drug and be more serious than prescription drugs which are a group 3 drug.
  • Quantity
    The amount of drugs you had in your possession will be another determining factor. Prison sentences, fines, and other penalties will be increased depending on the amount of drugs in your possession.
  • Purpose
    What was the drug used for? Generally, simple possession will not be as severe. But, if you are charged with possession with intent to distribute, or manufacturing and delivering drugs for example, you can expect more severe penalties.
  • Location
    The location of the violation will also be taken into consideration. For example, drug offenses at or near a school or daycare center, will have more severe penalties.
  • Multiple Offenses
    The court will also consider if the drug offense was combined with another offense. In many cases, other crimes such as conspiracy, theft, or assault are related to drug crimes. If the other offense or offenses are a felony, especially a violent crime, the penalties will be extremely severe.

If you are facing charges for any drug crime in Chandler, AZ, it is crucial that you speak with a drug crimes defense attorney immediately.

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
