Avoid The Consequences Of A Drug Conviction
New Jersey takes a hard stance on drugs. If you are convicted of a drug crime — even minor drug possession — the conviction may follow you for the rest of your life.
Drug charges range from disorderly person offenses to felony-level charges based on the activity charged, and the type and amount of drugs involved.
- Disorderly person offenses — Possession of small amounts of drugs or drug paraphernalia is punishable by up to six months in jail and fines up to $1,000 plus mandatory penalties and a potential suspension of your driver’s license.
- Felony drug charges (indictable charges) — Cultivating or distributing drugs, or possessing large amounts of drugs, is punishable by the required degree of the crime, which can include significant prison terms as well as fines. This would include loss of a driver’s license. Many felony offenders are required to serve minimum time before becoming eligible for parole. This can be a significant prison time.
