How Do Drug Charges Work in Indiana?

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.

What are the Penalties for Drug Crimes?

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 offenses 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 150 years prison and fines up to $10,000 for a Class A felony.

Is Marijuana Legal in Indiana?

It is illegal to sell, possess, or grow marijuana in the state of Indiana. If you are accused of breaking the state’s marijuana laws, you can face the following penalties:

  • Possession of Marijuana: Class B misdemeanor. Up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
  • Possession of Less Than 30 Grams: Class A misdemeanor if the defendant has a prior drug conviction. Up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.
  • Possession of 30 Grams or More: Level 6 felony if the defendant has a prior drug conviction. Up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.

Similar to marijuana possession, the penalties you face for manufacturing or distributing marijuana will vary depending on the amount in question. Because you can face serious charges, you should consult with a seasoned drug crimes lawyer to discuss all of your options under the law.
