Tips for selecting a NYC Narcotics / Drug Crime Lawyer

Tip 1: Before you hire an New York City, NY drug crime lawyer, that deals with the major drug offenses, possesion, manufacturing, trafficking you should feel very comfortable talking to them and never feel rushed or unimportant as if they are not listening to you. Even though they have many drug cases your case is the most important to you and that needs to be conveyed to them.  You also want to make sure that they will call you back when you leave a message. Good communication is a must.

Tip 2: Ask for and understand their fee schedule (how much) a lawyer, is going to charge you for their services. Does this need to be paid all at once or over time. Very importanrt question. The one thing you do not want is to be surprised when the bill comes to be paid.

 Misdemeanor vs Felony Drug Crimes

Penalties for Drug Crimes in NYC

There are a variety of penalties you can face if you’re arrested for drug crimes whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. These penalties include community service, drug rehabilitation programs and probation for those found in possession of illegal drugs for personal use or other minor drug charges. There are drug courts that deal exclusively with drug-related crimes in an attempt to help people get clean and sober instead of sending them to jail. For more serious drug crimes like trafficking or manufacturing, there is often a jail or prison sentence, fines and probation. 

 

The Classifications of Felony Charges

Most states categorize felonies into five classes or levels: Class A or Class 1 to Class E or Class 5. Some states don’t have subcategories and just have misdemeanor or felonies. In New York, there are six classes of felonies: Class A-I, Class A-ll, Class B, Class C, Class D and Class E.

The crime laws in New York are further complicated with two types of sentences – indeterminate and determinate. An indeterminate sentence is often for non-violent offenses and has a minimum and maximum number of years in prison. (For Class A felony convictions, there are only indeterminate sentences.) A determinate sentence is for violent crimes and drug-related crimes and imposes a set number of years in prison.

Below are the indeterminate sentences for felonies in New York.

  • Class A-I – 15 to 40 years in prison, or up to life in prison
  • Class A-II – 3 to 8 years in prison, or up to life in prison
  • Class B – 1 year to one-third of maximum sentence which is up to 25 years
  • Class C – 1 to 15 years in prison
  • Class D – 1 to 7 years in prison
  • Class E – 1 to 4 years in prison

From The Drug Policy Alliance

  • Marijuana Reform
    DPA has worked to reduce marijuana arrests statewide and legalize medical marijuana, but this is not enough. Patients still struggle to access their medication, and marijuana arrests are still ruining lives. With our Start SMART NY campaign, we are working to end marijuana prohibition in New York and create a new, well-regulated, and inclusive marijuana industry that is rooted in racial and economic justice. 
     
  • Harm Reduction
    In New York State, drug policies are dominated by the criminal justice system. We are pushing for a health-based approach aimed at improving the health and safety of the individuals, families and communities of New York with our EndOverdoseNY campaign.
     
  • Criminal Justice Reform
    New York’s harsh sentencing laws have resulted in the mass criminalization of communities of color. DPA’s Campaign for Reparative Justice is working to address these disparities and repair the harms caused by decades of bad drug policies. We advocate for municipal drug strategies that will move small towns and cities from criminal justice structures towards public health structures.
