What penalties could I face if convicted?
All drug crimes are different and consequences depend on the type and amount of drugs found on your person. Virginia categorizes illegal substances based on a system of schedules, with five total schedules included. The system was established as a way to rate the danger and potential for abuse of each drug. Your penalties, therefore, will align with the schedule of drugs you were involved in.
Penalties may include all of the following:
- 30 days to life in prison
- Up to $500,000 in fines
- Community service
- Mandatory substance abuse counseling
- Suspension of your privilege to drive
It can be difficult to recover from these charges, especially if your offense occurred near a school or other public property. Many offenders spend years fulfilling their community service requirements and paying back fines. A drug crime conviction is nothing to be trifled with.
From the first moments of your case to the very last, you deserve to know that your attorney is by your side every step of the way. Our level of personal commitment is unparalleled and we are intentional about staying in close communication with our clients.
