Penalties for Drug Charges

In Mississippi, drug charges can vary depending on the crime and severity of the offense. Whether it's possession, trafficking, or manufacturing of illegal substances, the potential penalties for a conviction are often severe. 

Factors that determine penalties include:

  • Type and amount of drugs involved in the case 
  • If other crimes were committed at the same time 
  • Nature of criminal record (if any) 
  • Possession vs distribution/manufacturing/trafficking 
  • Aggravating factors such as intent to sell or distribute 
  • Age and maturity level of accused individual
    • Imprisonment in state or federal prison

When you are charged with a drug crime, the offense will fall into either a felony or misdemeanor category. Depending on the severity of the charge and any aggravating factors, possible penalties for conviction can include:

  • Fines and surcharges 
  • Probation 
  • Community service
