In the video above, attorney Paul D. Petrus, Jr. discusses the conditions that must be met in order to charge an individual with an A1 felony drug crime in New York. Both the distribution and possession of narcotics can lead to an A1 felony charge. To be charged at the A1 felony level for drug distribution, the accused person must have sold 2 oz or more of narcotics. To be charged at the A1 felony level for drug possession, the accused person must have been in possession of 8 oz or more of narcotics.
An A1 felony conviction carries severe consequences. Seeking legal representation from a knowledgable drug crimes attorney can help minimize these consequences and their effect on your future.
