Defense for Drug Manufacturing Charges in New York State

Drug manufacturing is one of the most serious drug crimes that a person may be accused of. This offense involves using certain chemical processes to create controlled substances, in violation of the law. Most drug manufacturing charges involve methamphetamine, a stimulant that is classified as a Schedule II substance under the New York State Controlled Substances Act. Most drug manufacturing charges are classified as felonies, and a defendant may face imprisonment and fines of varying degrees depending on the type and amount of controlled substance and whether the defendant has prior convictions on his or her record.

The serious nature of drug manufacturing charges makes involving a New York City drug manufacturing lawyer of the utmost importance. If you have been arrested for or accused of any type of drug offense, you may be in danger of losing your freedom and various rights. You may face years in state prison and heavy fines, not to mention the burden of living with a criminal record for the rest of your life. Make sure you have the best chance at avoiding a conviction by utilizing the services of a skilled NYC drug manufacturing attorney as soon as possible.

Manufacturing Meth Charges in New York

Methamphetamine manufacturing in the third degree is a class D felony under New York State Penal Code § 220.73. This offense is described as knowingly possessing and intending to use laboratory equipment and certain chemical substances for the manufacture of methamphetamine.

This offense may be charged as the class C felony of meth manufacturing in the second degree if the defendant has a previous conviction for a methamphetamine-related offense or is accused of meth manufacturing in the presence of another person who is under the age of 16. Class B felony charges may apply if the defendant has a previous meth manufacturing in the second-degree conviction within the past five years.

Felony drug crimes, including drug manufacturing, are typically not eligible for treatment or rehabilitation in lieu of imprisonment, and it will be in the court's discretion to decide what a defendant's sentence may be, depending on the unique circumstances surrounding his or her case. Methamphetamine manufacturing in the first degree, a class B felony offense, may carry a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison and a fine of up to $30,000.
