Possession of Marijuana in NYC

Facing charges for marijuana possession?

Facing criminal charges is easily one of the most troubling and disheartening times in a person's life. Upon being arrested or placed under investigation for an alleged offense, you may realize what is truly at stake with an offense such as this; you are immediately risking your future, freedom, job, financial stability, personal relationships and more.

On top of this, you may also face imprisonment, and probation after your term has been served. If you have been charged with the possession of marijuana in New York City, do not hesitate to contact an experienced New York City drug possession lawyer from the Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser. We are available 24/7 to take your call.

Ramifications of a Guilty Verdict

At our office, we truly understand the difficulty in being charged with a criminal offense such as the possession of marijuana. When you are facing a drug possession charge for a larger quantity of the substance (25g or more, or a third offense), you may face the following consequences:

  • 5 days incarceration
  • Fine up to $500

For the possession of 8 to 16 ounces of marijuana, a first time offender may face the following consequences:

  • Class E Felony
  • 1 to 4 years
  • Up to $5,000 fine

Working with Our New York City Drug Possession Attorney

At the Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser, our New York City drug crime attorneys work aggressively to pursue the rights of defendants who are facing the serious offense of marijuana possession. Fortunately for first time offenders, our team may be able to negotiate an alternative sentencing program, including rehab or drug classes. For the possession of a small amount of marijuana, you will most likely not face a prison or jail sentence, but instead, have to pay a small fine and court fees with our help.

The trafficking and distribution of marijuana are much different charges and generally involve larger quantities of the illegal substance. As such, these offenses will hold much higher consequences for an individual in offense. When working with the legal team at our firm, you will have the comfort of knowing that our attorneys have extensive experience in the area of criminal defense on both sides of the court room.

Call us today for a consultation of your drug possession case. We serve communities throughout New York, including Westchester, Bronx, Manhattan, and Scarsdale​.
