Are you facing a drug crime charge in Flint or Mid-Michigan? Drug crimes always present a serious situation and they can carry serious penalties as well, no matter what kind of charges they include. The legal penalties are bad enough, but being convicted of a drug crime can carry a very negative stigma with it as well. However, no matter the evidence, you are innocent until proven guilty.
There are many different kinds of drug crimes and varying degrees of each crime. In most cases drug crimes fall under three categories:
Each of these types of drug categories also has different levels or schedules, with Schedule 1 offenses being the most serious and schedule 5 offenses being the least.
Drug crimes can also affect your future employment opportunities, your voting rights and government benefits. They should not be taken lightly.
Penalties for these different offenses can vary greatly, but most drug convictions will lead to prison time. In fact, there are more people in federal prisons today in the U.S. for drug crimes than for any other type of crime. Just over half of all convicted criminals serving more than a year in federal prison are there for drug crimes. Prison isn’t the only consequence of being convicted of a drug crime, either. Many people are also ordered to pay fines, and drug convictions can lead to several other penalties as well. For example, for students attending college a drug crime can lead to being expelled and losing scholarships.
