Penalties for Drug Trafficking
Whether it's for drug delivery, manufacture, dispensing, or distribution, you are most likely looking at felony charges. State penalties alone could range from 6 to 60 years in prison, depending on the controlled substance. For example, for 15 grams or more of cocaine, heroin, LSD, or ecstasy, you could be charged with a Class X felony trafficking offense. Due to substances involved, you would still face a Class 1 felony charge for less than 15 grams of the narcotic or stimulant.
For a Class 3 felony drug trafficking charge in Illinois, you could face:
- 2 to 5 years in prison
- 10 years in prison for an aggravated term
- $75,000 to $150,000 in criminal fines
As for federal charges, you could be facing escalated sentences, even for drug possession with intent to deliver. While recent policies have reduced the penalties for simple possession charges, federal law still comes down heavy on trafficking charges. However, mandatory minimum sentences are not really mandatory, but serve as guidelines for a judge. A skilled drug crime defender could successfully argue to reduce the sentence.
