About Drug Crimes in New York
Drug crimes involve any illegal activity that revolves around controlled substances, like marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, and ecstasy, as well as prescription narcotics. In Queens, New York, drug crime charges can range from misdemeanors for possessing small amounts of marijuana, to felonies for drug sales and distribution. If you’re charged with interstate trafficking, you could also be facing federal charges.
Felony drug crime convictions are subject to indeterminate sentencing. Such a sentence does not set a specific release date for an offender, but rather establishes a minimum and maximum sentence (i.e., 3-to-5 years, 10-to-15 years, etc.) However, if you are convicted on a felony drug charge in New York, a long prison sentence won’t be your only problem. You may also face the forfeiture of money and personal assets. Once you are released, the conditions of your parole could include drug testing and participation in a court-ordered drug treatment program.
