Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance

Call a Proven Buffalo Drug Crimes Attorney

NY Penal Law § 220.03 - 220.21 describe and define New York's drug possession laws. Like in other states, these statutes are complex and provide for many different factors that can be present for this type of offense. One thing that all these charges have in common, however, is the need for effective and proven defense counsel to effectively counter them both in and outside the courtroom.

If you have been charged with drug possession, then the time to speak with legal counsel is now. The Rossi Law Firm knows how unfairly individuals accused of these crimes can be processed under our overburdened criminal justice system. Their dedicated and experienced Buffalo drug crime lawyers know how to slow this process down and ensure that their clients get every consideration they deserve under the law.

What Matters in a Drug Possession Charge

Many accused of criminal possession of a controlled substance want to know how serious their crime is and what penalties they could be facing. The truth is that these answers are dependent on factors specific to their case, making these drug possession charges vary widely case-to-case.

Important factors in a drug possession charge include:

  • The type of substance found
  • The amount of the substance found
  • Where the substance was found
  • The criminal history of the accused

Seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance is considered a class A misdemeanor, but all other variations on this charge are considered a felony. To learn more about your specific charge, what penalties you could be facing, and how the advocates at The Rossi Law Firm can help secure a favorable outcome to your case, reach out the firm today.
