SENTENCES FOR ARIZONA DRUG CRIMES – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

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

  • The type of drug. For federal cases, The Controlled Substances Act classifies drugs into 5 “penalty groups”, with Group 1 being the most serious. For example, cocaine is classified as penalty group 1, whereas prescription drugs are group 3.
  • The amount of drugs in your possession. Prison sentences or fines will increase according to the amount of drug possessed. Greater amounts of the same drug will result in higher sentences.
  • The purpose for which the drug is used. Simple possession is usually considered less severe than other crimes, such as possession with intent to distribute, or manufacturing and delivering drugs.
  • Location of the violation. Drug offenses are considered more severe if they take place in certain areas, such as near a school or daycare center.

RAMIFICATIONS FOR DRUG CONVICTIONS

It is also considered a drug crime to use a prescription or over-the-counter drug for an illegal purpose. A drug crime conviction can result in serious legal ramifications, including long-term jail and prison sentences, probation, large fines, mandatory drug treatment, community service, driver’s license suspension, and a conviction on your permanent record. In addition, a drug crime conviction can seriously damage your reputation as well as your relationships with family and friends.

Another important factor that a court will consider is whether the drug offense was combined with another offense. Many drug offenses are related to other crimes such as conspiracy, theft, or assault. If the drug offense is related to another felony, especially a violent crime, the penalties will be more severe. – Drug Crimes Attorney Phoenix
