Q I've been charged with a drug offense, what are the possible penalties?
The possible penalties for drug offenses vary. All of the possible consequences of a conviction can effect you, your ability to work, your ability to drive, your family, and your friends. The possible penalties of a conviction include:
- License Suspension. Conviction of any type of drug offense in Ohio carries a mandatory driver's license suspension for a minimal six months to five years.
- Jail. Drug offenses can include up to 11 years in prison. Depending on the amount involved, drug charges can come with the risk of mandatory prison time if you are convicted.
