Denver Drug Felony Defense Lawyer

What is Felony Drug Possession?

Felony charges are the most serious type of drug crimes. In Colorado, drug felonies are categorized into four levels, with Level 4 being the least serious and Level 1 carrying the most severe penalties. Drugs themselves are also divided into classes. Some drugs are considered more dangerous than others and Schedule I drugs are considered the most dangerous of all.

Drug classifications include the following:

  • Schedule I Drugs – substances with no accepted medical use in the U.S. and a high potential for abuse, including heroin, peyote, LSD, and ecstasy
  • Schedule II Drugs – substances with a high potential for abuse and psychological or physical dependence such as opium, morphine, methadone, and methamphetamine
  • Schedule III Drugs – substances with a low to moderate potential for abuse such as Vicodin®, Tylenol with Codeine®, ketamine, and more
  • Schedule IV Drugs – substances with low potential for abuse such as Xanax, Talwin, Valium, and Ambien
  • Schedule V Drugs – substances with very low potential for abuse and are typically used as ingredients in narcotics, such as Lyrica, Lomotil, and Parepectolin

Illegal possession or distribution of Schedule I and II drugs are the most likely to be charged as felonies, as well as trafficking charges involving any prohibited substance. Although these are serious charges, you do not have to face them alone. At the Law Office of Jill M. Jackson, our experienced felony drug crime attorney in Denver can provide you with dedicated representation and counsel.

What Are the Penalties for Felony Drug Offenses?

A conviction for a felony drug crime will almost always result in a prison sentence and hefty fines. As mentioned previously, penalties scale depending on the level of drug felony you are charged with.

Penalties for felony drug crimes may include:

  • Level 4 Felonies – A 6 to 12-month prison sentence with up to $100,000 in fines
  • Level 3 Felonies – A 2 to 4-year prison sentence with up to $500,000 in fines
  • Level 2 Felonies – A 4 to 8-year prison sentence with up to $75,000 in fines
  • Level 1 Felonies – A 8 to 32-year prison sentence with up to $1 million in fines

While you should be aware of the penalties, do not let them intimidate you. There is a lot to investigate and discover in a felony drug charge before a verdict is rendered. If your charges can’t be dismissed, it still may be possible to have them reduced.
