What Possession Charges Involve

Possession of any amount of the various controlled substances in Illinois is always a felony offense irrespective of the amount of the substance recovered by the police. Examples of controlled substances are:

  • Heroine
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • LSD
  • Morphine

Generally, the larger the amount of the substance possessed, the greater the class of felony charged. While a possession charge comes with serious consequences, a possession with intent to distribute results in conviction and much more jail time and heavier fines. If you are caught by the police with predetermined amounts of a given drug, they will charge you with possession with intent, regardless of what your intent may have been, even if they did not catch you in the act of selling.

If you are charged with possession or possession with intent, it is extremely important for you to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to help you explore your options.
