How Drug Charges Work

Regardless of the circumstances of your situation, you can expect the prosecution to push for the maximum penalty during the proceedings. You need an aggressive advocate in your corner who will make sure you are treated fairly and not burdened with additional charges that should never have been added on top of the charge that led to your arrest. This will allow you and your defense to focus on the real issue at hand: building your defense for the primary drug charge.

Indiana classifies most forms of drug possession as a felony. Both misdemeanor and felony convictions come with the possibility of a jail or prison sentence.

Penalties for drug penalties in Indiana include:

  • Up to 1 year in jail and fines up to $5,000 for a misdemeanor
  • 6 months to 3 years prison and fines up to $10,000 for a Class D felony
  • 2 to 8 years prison and fines up to $10,000 for a Class C felony
  • 6 to 20 years prison and fines up to $10,000 for a Class B felony
  • 20 to 50 years prison and fines up to $10,000 for a Class A felony

Typically, only possession of marijuana that weighs 30 grams or less is charged as a misdemeanor. Possession of cocaine, methamphetamine, or heroine is almost always charged as a felony in Indiana.
