Possession for Sale of a Controlled Substance Charges in CA

Potential Penalties for a Possession for Sale Conviction

The penalties you could face would depend heavily on the amount of the substance involved and the type of narcotic you’re accused of possessing for sale. A charge that alleges marijuana possession or sale of prescription drugs can be a far cry from heroin possession, or the sale of cocaine. In fact, in California, a possession for sale charge that involves cocaine or heroin can automatically create worse penalties.

Some of the penalties you might be facing for possession of certain controlled substances with intent to sell include:

  • $20,000 fine
  • 9 years in prison
  • Devastating criminal record

If there are aggravating factors in your case, about two to five years could be added to the prison sentence. Such factors could include furnishing a minor with drugs or possessing controlled substances near a school or public area.
