If you have been arrested or are under investigation for the sale of illegal narcotics or prescription drugs, you may be at risk of facing an extensive term of imprisonment and the burden of living with a criminal record if you are convicted. A Greenville drug crime attorney can help you challenge these charges and work toward avoiding a conviction. Drug sale is a felony offense in North Carolina and will need to be addressed immediately with the help of an experienced lawyer.
The North Carolina Controlled Substances Act defines the offense of drug sales and the penalties that may be imposed for a conviction of this kind. According to the Act, the sale of a Schedule I or II substance is a Class G felony, punishable by a maximum of 15 years in prison. The sale of a Schedule III, IV, V or VI substance is a Class H felony, punishable by a maximum of 10 years in prison.
All controlled substances are organized into schedules according to their potential medicinal value, probability to cause addiction and danger. Accordingly, Class G felony drug sales would include the sale or attempted sale of such Schedule I or II substances as heroin, ecstasy, cocaine, morphine or methamphetamine. Class H felony drug sales would include such Schedule III, IV, V or VI substances as anabolic steroids, valium, over the counter cough medicines with codeine, Xanax and marijuana.
