Charged with drug distribution?
Criminal distribution of a controlled substance occurs when a person knowingly and unlawfully distributes a controlled substance otherwise intended for medical use, or other illicit drugs like cocaine, methamphetamine,
marijuana, prescription medicines, heroin and any other drugs that may be listed in Schedules I through V of the New York Controlled Substances Act.
This is a serious crime and those convicted of criminal distribution are likely to face long-term prison sentences and very costly fines. Determining the length of prison sentence or the amount of a fine depends in large part on the type and amount of drug distributed, where it was distributed and to whom. Penalties can vary greatly depending on specifics of the charge but will include varying degrees of prison time ranging from one year to decades behind bars.
