New York Drug Charges
Possession can sometimes be a less serious charge than the charge of selling or distributing a controlled substance. The seriousness of the charges depend on the type of drugs involved, the quantity involved, and whether or not the defendant intended to sell them. If there is evidence that the defendant intended to sell them or if the aggregate weight of the drugs is significant, he or she may be charged with intent to sell. Whether or not the drugs were exchanged for payment with an actual customer is not necessarly required. Having a previous criminal record and involving minors in the offense are factors that can also play a role in the severity of the charges and the penalties that may ensue.
