Life in Prison Is a Possibility
People with prior federal drug convictions may be sentenced to up to life in prison. They will also face harsh fines, ranging from $250,000 to $4 million for an individual. Plus, if you are sentenced to prison in a federal drug crime, you must serve a minimum of 85 percent of your sentence.
In addition to prison time and fines, the consequences of state or federal drug crime convictions may include:
- A permanent criminal record
- Decreased job opportunities
- Being barred from scholarships and college admission
- Driver's license suspension
- Community service
- Drug treatment
If you are separated or divorced from your spouse, a drug crime conviction can also affect your ability to maintain a relationship with your children. You may be restricted to supervised visits or lose your parental rights altogether. If this is a concern, our family law attorneys may be able to help you.
