Possession of Greater than One Half Ounce | Criminal Defense Attorney | Greensboro NC

Possession of Greater than ½ Ounce

If you are charged with possessing greater than a half ounce but less than one and a half ounces, you likely will be facing punishment as a misdemeanant, but could, in some circumstances, be facing several months in prison. This is due to the fact that if you have been previously convicted of an offense under North Carolina’s Controlled Substances Act, then you may be sentenced as a Class I felon.

If you have been charged with possession of greater than 1.5 ounces of marijuana, then you will be sentenced as a felon if you are found guilty. No matter what the amount you have been charged with, it would be to your benefit to contact the Whited DelForge & Henkle, PLLC immediately for a free initial consultation.
