Based on a number of determining factors, including the substance type, amount carried, and previous criminal record of the defendant, consequences for drug possession a charge can vary greatly in Illinois. However, you should never assume that carrying a small amount of drugs or a clean record will lead to a lighter charge. Even a first-offense, low-carry, or low-level drug charge can negatively impact your life. Your employment and housing options could be limited, you may be barred from seeking tuition assistance to further your education, and if you are ever arrested on another drug charge you are more likely to face even higher penalties for the second offense. Do not take a risk. Contact our attorneys for help with your drug case.
