Penalties for Drug Crimes in Ohio
Drug crime allegations and potential penalties depend largely on the individual facts and circumstances of your case, including:
- Nature of the alleged crime
- Type of drugs involved
- Amount of drugs involved
- Your criminal history
In some cases, particularly those involving first offenses, misdemeanors, and certain low-level felony charges, there may be opportunities for pursuing Diversion or Intervention in Lieu of Conviction, which upon successful completion, may result in a case dismissal and no conviction.
Some cases involve more serious allegations, including serious felonies such as:
In these situations, the potential for lengthy terms of imprisonment makes a solid defense all the more important. In cases involving federal charges, which may trigger life-altering mandatory minimum sentences and potential decades in prison, working with defense attorneys who have experience handling federal criminal cases is crucial.
