Drug Possession

Drug possession charges are among the most common causes for drug crime convictions in the United States. In Illinois, the offense can be either possession or possession with intent to deliver. The penalties for possession vary on the drug and the amount of the drug you are charged with possessing.

For example, possession of more than 2.5 grams but less than 10 grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor and can lead to 6 months in jail. Possession with intent to deliver of the same amount of marijuana can lead to a year in jail. Cocaine and heroin possession charges are felonies regardless of the quantity.

If possession or sale of any drug is within 1500 feet of any school, church, public park, or movie theater, the court may double the fine and sentence. It is extremely important that you have an attorney review the circumstances of your arrest to help combat your drug possession charge.
