Penalties for Selling Drugs in NY
Before penalizing you, the court will first consider the circumstances surrounding your drug sale offense. New York uses a Schedule system to categorize drugs. Schedule I includes the most dangerous and likely to be abused drugs and Schedules II-V gradually decrease in their danger and potential for abuse.
Based on the amount and type of drugs found on your person, you may receive a more serious sentence.
You could be facing any of the following penalties:
- Class B felony: Fines up to $30,000, up to 25 years in prison, or both
- Class C felony: Fines up to $15,000, up to 15 years in prison, or both
- Class D felony: Fines up to $5,000, up to 7 years in prison, or both
