Penalties for Drug Crimes in Ohio
Even an arrest for a misdemeanor drug crime can be a frightening experience. Both law enforcement and the District Attorney’s Office can be extremely unyielding when seeking a conviction in a drug crime case, such as in a charge of possession, distribution, sales, trafficking, cultivation, conspiracy, manufacturing, or transportation of a controlled substance.
This holds true whether the charge involves heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, or certain prescription drugs. If you are convicted of a drug offense, you will be facing the possibility of:
- Community service
- Asset and property seizure
- Vehicle forfeiture
- Court-ordered drug treatment
- Driver’s license suspension
