Possession Attorney in Danbury
In Connecticut, lawmakers have passed sentencing guidelines that allow for heavy penalties for drug possession. Marijuana is classified as a "cannabis-type substance" and is likely to be charged as a felony if the amount of marijuana in the case exceeds 4 ounces. For a first conviction of possession of more than four ounces of marijuana, the accused person is facing up to five years in jail and up to a $2000 in fines. If the individual is facing a second conviction, there is a real possibility to spending up to 5 years in prison with a $3,000 fine. Any subsequent conviction will carry heavier and heavier penalties. Whether the possession charges involve prescription drugs, "designer" drugs, street drugs or any other type of controlled substance, it is important to speak with an attorney at once in order to seek to avoid serious negative consequences.
