Manufacturing is the crime of creating an illegal drug or controlled substance by means of a chemical process. Drug manufacturing is prosecuted harshly in the state of Alabama, and people arrested for drug manufacturing often face additional drug charges, such as intent to sell, trafficking, distribution, racketeering, conspiracy, and more.
If you have been arrested for manufacturing, or if you think you are under investigation for drug manufacturing, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel from an experienced Alabama manufacturing defense lawyer right way. The sooner you speak with an attorney, the sooner steps can be taken to defend you against the charges at hand.
Drug Manufacturing Penalties
In Alabama, the penalties for manufacturing will depend on a number of factors, including:
- Whether you are being charged in state or federal court
- The amount of drugs being manufactured
- The type of drugs being manufactured
- If only supplies were found, as opposed to actual drugs or narcotics
- If you intended to sell or distribute the drugs
- If minors were somehow involved
With these factors in mind, the penalties for drug manufacturing can include 20 years to life in prison, up to $30,000 in fines, asset forfeiture, probation or parole, community service, and more. Seek representation from an Alabama drug crime attorney for help in your case!
