PCP Charges in Queens

New York Drug Crime Attorney

First concocted in the 1920's Phencyclidine was put on the market as a surgical anesthetic briefly around the time of the Second World War but quickly fell into disuse because of its unpredictable and dangerous effects. In the 1960's it was used as a veterinary anesthetic for a period of time, but again due to serious drawbacks fell into disuse. Since then despite the dangers inherent in its use, it has become famous as Angel Dust or PCP an illicit street drug which has a vicious effect on humans.

This hallucinogenic is classified as a schedule II drug by the DEA and by the state of New York. As such the penalties just for having it in your possession will be extensive. If you have been charged with possession or another PCP offense, you need to consult a New York City drug crime attorney about your defense.

Penalties for PCP Crimes in New York

PCP offenses include manufacturing, sale, possession, possession with intent and distribution. The severity of the penalties increases according to the amount of drug involved. Although you may only have a supply for personal use, you may still face a lengthy jail or prison term if you don't present a strong defense. Even after a jail or prison sentence has been served, there are additional consequences that will become more real as you proceed to live with them.

Employment may be more difficult to obtain as more employers are running background checks. Credit and insurance coverage may be more difficult with a drug crime conviction on your record. Other additional consequences may present a number of difficulties for many years. Working with a skilled drug crime defense lawyer to fight the charges against you could change your future.
