Drug Sales in Nevada

Las Vegas Drug Crime Lawyer

If you are charged with selling drugs, this is a different charge than possession with intent to sell. It may be a charge of drug distribution, or of drug trafficking, if transporting the drugs is part of the alleged offense. None of these drug sale charges can be shrugged off; they are very serious matters that could affect the rest of your life. It is in your best interests to retain a successful drug crime lawyer who can help you defend your rights and freedoms.

What are the penalties for drug sales in Las Vegas?

The penalties for selling drugs in Las Vegas include years in prison and potentially hefty fines. As varied as your charges may be, what they have in common is that they are felony charges. This means that after whatever sentence you would serve, you would still have to live with the consequences of being a convicted felon. Whenever someone needs to look at your record, such as when you are applying for a job or place to live, then this fact will haunt your efforts. The rest of your life could be at stake if you are charged with drug sales, so you cannot afford less than the best defense lawyer you can find.

Selling a Schedule I or II Controlled Substance

Such controlled substances include cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and ecstasy. If you are charged with the sale of a Schedule I or II substance, then you will be charged with a category B felony.

Probation may be an option with a first offense, but penalties escalate with subsequent offenses and no probation is possible.

  • 1st offense: means 1 to 6 years in state prison, plus up to $20,000 in fines.
  • 2nd offense: entails 2 to 10 years' imprisonment and fines of up to $20,000.
  • 3rd or more offense: leads to 3 to 15 years in prison and up to $20,000 in fines.

Selling a Schedule III, IV, or V Controlled Substance

These are still felony offenses, which may be lesser charges than Schedule I or II substance charges, can still alter the rest of your life. A first offense, while holding out the option of probation in certain circumstances, is still a category C felony. Anyrepeat offenses are treated as category B offenses, with a second offense entailing 2 to 10 years in prison plus up to $15,000 in fines and any subsequent offenses punishable by 3 to 15 years' prison and up to $20,000 in fines.

There are a number of circumstances under which you could face escalated penalties. One is if you are charged with a repeat offense of selling a controlled substance to a minor, which is a category A felony with the potential for a life sentence. You could face similar penalties if charged with selling drugs that were involved in someone's death. As deeply serious as these charges are, any drug sale charge entails severe, life-changing consequences. As soon as possible, you need to retain a drug crime attorney who can fully defend your freedoms and safeguard your future.
