What Is At Stake
Outside of a few minor offenses related to marijuana, most drug offenses are felonies in Minnesota. There are five degrees of charges related to controlled substances. Penalties can range from five years of prison and thousands of dollars in fines for first degree charges to as much as 30 years in prison and up to one million dollars in fines for fifth degree drug offenses.
A drug conviction can take more than just years of your freedom and money from your wallet. A drug offense conviction can also affect:
- Your right to own a gun
- Your right to vote
- Your eligibility for banking, insurance or health care
- Your student loan eligibility
- Your access to enroll in certain colleges
To defend yourself against receiving the worst outcomes, you need an experienced and committed criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights and freedom.
