Drug Trafficking & Aggravating Factors

New York criminal statutes categorize drug trafficking charges into five different degrees, with first degree being the most serious. These charges are decided by a number of factors, including the type of substance being sold, the quantity, and if the sold substances are being used for drug manufacturing.

There are also some aggravating factors that may apply. These include:

  • If the drugs were sold in or around school grounds (Section 220.44)
  • If the drugs were sold to a child (Section 220.48)
  • If the drugs sold were a prescription drug (Section 220.65)

Depending on the circumstances of your arrest and the evidence held against you, your penalties can vary.
