Understanding the Charge of New York
Criminal Possession in the 7th Degree
Whether you are issued a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) or you have been arrested in Manhattan, Brooklyn or anywhere else in New York, if you possess a controlled substance you may be charged with New York Penal Law section 220.03. This offense, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th Degree, is an “A” misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and applies to such drugs as cocaine, crack-cocaine, heroin, extacy, oxycodone, etc.
Make no mistake.
If convicted of NY PL 220.03, you will have a criminal record that will not just go away. Even a plea to a Disorderly Conduct (NY PL 240.20 – a common offer in misdemeanor drug cases) can have real life ramifications years down the road.
