Penalties for Drug Crimes in Virginia
The penalties imposed for a conviction will reflect whether the charge is a misdemeanor or felony. Smaller quantities found in possession may be filed as a misdemeanor, with jail time up to 12 months. These cases, if managed with skill, could allow for alternatives to jail time. Ensure you have the protection of a criminal attorney who will seek every advantage available under state law. If you are accused of a felony drug crime, the risks are extreme. Under state law, depending on the facts in the case, the penalties imposed could include many years in state prison.
