If convicted, what happens next? Is it possible to win at trial?

Being convicted for drug possession will put a serious black mark on your record. You could easily be facing jail or prison time, large fines, probation and a criminal record. In addition, your future opportunities for employment, housing, education and more could be seriously hampered.

Drug possession penalties depend on the drug and the quantity. Misdemeanor drug possession charges can result in 90 days to one year in jail and fines up to $10,000. Felony convictions can mean prison from four to seven years. If you have been previously convicted, the penalties are harsher. A qualified Anchorage criminal defense attorney can tell you more specifically what you may be facing in your particular case.
