The consequences of being arrested and charged with drug possession can be a little more difficult to explain. Prosecuting attorneys handle drug cases in a variety of ways. Some are much stricter than others. With that being said, the sentences for possession of a controlled substance may or may not include:
- Loss of a driver's license
Most courts have penalties that increase with each recurring arrest. The more charges a person has on their record, the stiffer the penalties will be.
Each case is unique and the circumstances under which you were arrested will be discussed during the presentation of your case. If the police can prove intent to distribute the outcome may be far worse than what was expected.
