Felony Defense Solutions from Naegle Law Firm
In order to obtain a conviction for a manufacturing offense, the state must prove that the defendant manufactured dangerous drugs or packaged or labeled containers for dangerous drugs.
A conviction for manufacture of dangerous drugs is a class 2 felony and will result in a fine of three times the value of the drugs, or $1,000, whichever is greater. If the drug involved is not methamphetamine, the sentence range for a first-offense conviction is usually 4 to 10 years in prison, although the sentence may be as short as 3 years or as long as 12.5 years in prison. Probation is not available.
Offenses involving methamphetamine have separate, stricter sentencing guidelines. A first-offense conviction for manufacture of methamphetamine will result in a sentence of 5 to 15 years in prison. Again, no probation is available.
If a defendant has any prior felony convictions, a conviction for manufacture of dangerous drugs can result in vastly increased punishment. For example, the sentencing range for a class 2 felony conviction with at least two prior felony convictions is 10.5 to 35 years in prison.
