Penalties For Drug Manufacturing
If you have been arrested for the “intent to manufacture narcotics” then you could be facing a long-term jail sentence and hefty fines. This is a very serious charge, which is why it is critical to seek legal advice from an experienced Minneapolis drug crime attorney as soon as you are arrested or accused of any drug possession crime.
Drug abuse is considered a social problem and because of this, all drug crimes are tried in a separate Minnesota court and follow a different set of rules.
At Rivers Law Firm, P.A., some of the cases we handle include:
- Growing/cultivating marijuana
- Use of a drug lab
- Possession of certain chemical agents
- Possession of manufacturing devices
There are a number of different defense tactics you can take to walk away from a drug crime conviction. For example, if the drug lab or chemical agents were discovered during an illegal search and seizure that violated your right to privacy, then the evidence collected cannot be used against you.
What Determines The Sentence?
Your penalty will depend on a number of factors, including the quantity of drugs in your possession, what manufacturing devices you were caught with, what was the intent of having this drug and what drug(s) were you caught with. Your criminal record may also play a role in your punishment.
If you have been convicted of any drug crime in the past, then you could be looking at more severe penalties this time around. Penalties for drug crimes include fines and fees, community service, drug rehabilitation in some instances and jail time.
