Understanding Your Drug Crime Charges
“Drug crime” is a term used to describe any number of offenses
that involve a controlled substance. Drug crimes can fall into a few different
categories, depending on what the person charged with the crime intended
to do with the drugs that are found on him at the time of arrest.
For example, a person who gets caught in possession of a drug, but only
intended to use it, may receive a lighter sentence if convicted, than
someone who possessed the drug with the intent to sell.
New York is widely considered to have some of the toughest laws against
drug crimes in the United States. The first step to defending yourself
in a New York drug case is to have a clear understanding of what New York
defines as a controlled substance.

illegal as well. Although New York is less harsh on those who possess
a controlled substance without the intent to sell, such a situation can
still be considered a felony that carries a 1-30 year jail sentence.
