Drug Possession Charges in Illinois
Possession of marijuana is the only drug possession charge considered a misdemeanor in the state of Illinois. If you are charged with having 30 grams or less of marijuana, it is considered a misdemeanor. If charged with over 30 grams, it is a felony. All other drug possession charges, including heroin, cocaine, morphine, or LSD, are classified as felonies (with most being considered Class 1 felonies). If convicted of a drug possession charge, you may face up to 50 years in prison for felony charges or up to one year in jail and up to a $2,500 fine for misdemeanor charges.
Protecting Your Rights
Often, when drug possession charges are filed, the correct process for search and seizure is not followed. You have rights, and they should not be violated in any manner, especially by law enforcement. You should hire a skilled and knowledgeable lawyer immediately to try to avoid your drug possession charges escalating to a felony.
If your rights were violated during the search and arrest process or authorities are trying to overcharge you, you need to speak with an attorney who will fight to have the charges reduced or dropped. Your rights should be protected. You need to ensure an experienced lawyer is in the courtroom representing you.
