Drug offenses are among the most commonly charged in Illinois. Police and prosecutors aggressively pursue convictions, regardless of the amount of drugs involved. In Illinois and under federal law, drug convictions follow strict sentencing guidelines; many people in Illinois jails and prisons today are there because of conviction on a drug offense.
Any conviction of a drug offense, even possession of a small amount of marijuana, will appear on your criminal record. This information is readily available to current and future employers, and can cost you your job and your reputation. If you are charged with a more serious offense, you may be subject to government seizure of assets, extremely high fines, and lengthy jail or prison sentences. Some of these offenses include possession of large quantities of drugs, manufacturing and trafficking, or intent to deliver.
