Knowingly and unlawfully selling a narcotic drug like cocaine or heroin, a hallucinogen like LSD, methamphetamine, or PCP is charged as Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree (NY PL 220.39).
It is an extremely serious charge that will have significant and permanent negative effects on your future, even if you’re able to avoid a lengthy term of incarceration.
Police and prosecutors take drug trafficking charges very seriously, and New York prisons are full of people who thought they were helping out a friend by hooking them up with a small amount of something.
That’s not how the court views these activities, and your best hope to avoid the worst criminal sanction is to work with experienced Buffalo criminal defense attorneys who can protect your rights and guide your case toward the best possible outcome.
