The Consequences of Illegal Drug Manufacturing
The penalties that the defendant faces vary depending upon the drug they are accused of manufacturing. Drugs on schedule I or II are considering the most dangerous and therefore carry the severest penalties. These can include fines of up to $15,000 and a prison sentence of at least six to 18 months. Those penalties get tougher if the alleged operation was located close to a school or other location that kids frequent. Fines of $20,000 and 10 years in prison may be the result of these manufacturing charges.
Illegal drug manufacturing of substances on schedules III, IV or V carry lesser penalties, but a conviction can still rob you of several thousand dollars and months or years of freedom. Your good name and reputation will be tarnished, especially if you are convicted, and the stigma may follow you for years.
