Penalties for Drug Trafficking in Chicago
Drug trafficking in Chicago refers to the sale and distribution of illegal drugs or controlled substances. Penalties depend on the type of drug, the quantity ceased by law enforcement and the circumstances involving the arrest.
Kinds of drugs are penalized differently, so you can face different charges for trafficking:
Individuals convicted of drug trafficking will be sentenced to a minimum prison term “not less than twice the minimum term” or a maximum prison term “not more than twice the maximum term.” Drug trafficking can be classified anywhere between a Class 3 felony and a Class X felony.
|Charge Type||Minimum Penalty||Penalty for Convicted Drug Trafficking|
|Class 3 Felony:||2-5 years in prison||4-10 years in prison|
|Class X Felony:||15-60 years in prison||30-120 years in prison|
