Possession with Intent Attorney in Chicago
Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Deliver
Possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver is considered a more serious offense than simple drug possession. The penalties for this crime can be very serious, and they will vary depending on certain circumstances surrounding the case, such as the type and amount of drug involved. For instance, possession of cannabis with intent to deliver is penalized particularly harshly, as this act is made illegal under the Illinois Cannabis Control Act. A person found with 2.5 grams or less faces 30 days in jail, and possible fines of up to $1,500. A person found with 2.5 to 10 grams face up to 6 months in jail and fines of up to $1,500. And if one is found with 10 to 30 grams, he or she will face a possible 1-year prison sentence and fines of up to $25,000.
