Bolivar County Drug Crime Defense Attorney
Penalties for Drug Crime Convictions in Mississippi
Mississippi law divides controlled substances into five schedules, or levels. Schedule I contains drugs that are considered to be the most dangerous and have no medicinal value. On the other end of the spectrum, Schedule V drugs are the least dangerous and can often be used for medical purposes.
The consequences for the different levels of drug crimes include:
- Schedule I and II: A maximum of 30 years in prison and/or a fine between $5,000 to $1,000,000
- Schedule III and IV: A maximum of 20 years in prison and/or a fine between $1,000 to $250,000
- Schedule V: A maximum of 10 years in prison and/or a fine between $1,000 to $50,000
