Bronx Oxycontin Possession Lawyers

What is possession of Oxycontin? If you’re in New York, it’s unlawful to possess any amount of Oxycontin or any brand of oxycondone unless you have a prescription from a medical doctor. Illegal possession of Oxycontin can be classified as a misdemeanor or a felony. Oxycontin possession charges include:

  • First degree possession of a controlled substance(Class A-1 felony)
  • Second degree possession of a controlled substance (Class A-II felony)
  • Third degree possession of a controlled substance (Class B felony)
  • Fourth degree possession of a controlled substance (Class C felony)
  • Seventh degree possession of a controlled substance (Class A misdemeanor)

The most severe penalty for felony possession charges is a maximum of life in prison. For the misdemeanor possession charge, the penalty is a maximum jail time of one year. What is sale of Oxycontin? When it comes to drug dealing, New York has tough laws. Being charged with selling Oxycontin results in more serious consequences than possession of the controlled substance. Oxycontin sales charges include:

  • Third degree criminal sale of a controlled substance (Class B felony)
  • Second degree criminal sale of a controlled substance (Class A-II felony or A-I felony)
  • Criminal sale of a prescription for a controlled substance (Class C felony)

The penalties depend on the amount of drugs in a person’s possession and the intent. The maximum sentence is life in prison. During the sentencing phase, the judge must adhere to sentencing guidelines if the defendant has prior felony convictions. In some instances, first time offenders may be deemed eligible for an alternative sentencing program. To be eligible for this program, defendendants must have a problem that’s related to substance abuse. Other eligibility requirements include the defendant will benefit from a drug treatment program and there have been no prior felony convictions within the past 10 years.

What should you do if you’re facing Oxycontin possession charges? Whether you’ve been charged with possession or sale of Oxycontin, you need to take decisive action. The first thing you should do is contact a Bronx Oxycontin lawyer for help. The consequences of getting convicted these crimes are too serious for you to disregard your charges. Here’s what a Bronx Oxycontin lawyer can do for you.
