NYC / Long Island Anabolic Steroids Drug Crimes Lawyers

If you’re accused of possessing, or selling, anabolic steroids in NYC or Long Island – then you need to speak to Raiser & Kenniff, PC. Anabolic steroids are synthetically produced variants of testerone. They are classified as Schedule III controlled substances by the federal government – in the Anabolic Steroids Control Act of 1990. In New York, under section 3306, they are classified as Schedule II controlled substances. Because they are controlled, it’s illegal to possess anabolic steroids. It’s also illegal to manufacture them without authorization, or to prescribe them without a medical purpose, or deliver or sell them, or to traffic in them. Defendants who are accused of any of these crimes need experienced criminal attorneys. We can help.

Anabolic steroids are prescribed by medical professionals because of their legitimate medical uses. Patients with a loss of testicle function, breast cancer, delayed puberty, or other illnesses, are prescribed steroids. Having steroids in your possession with valid medical prescription isn’t a crime. When steroids are made unlawfully, or prescribed, delivered, sold, then those instances can be charged by either state or federal charges. Defendants can be charged with possession, or even intent to deliver and distribute.

In New York, a defendant will be automatically charged with possession – unless the prosecutor can prove there was a criminal sale that was about to happen. On a federal level, it’s possible for a defendant to be charged with intent to sell, even without actual proof of distribution, delivery, or transaction. The federal government takes intent to manufacture, distribute, or dispense – a lot seriously. They will interpret it as such, even if there is no actual sale taking place.

Penalties

Penalties for these offenses will vary. In New York, there is a major law imposing significant penalties on those involved. If the sales have been more than $75,000 – then you will incur significantly criminal penalties, involving jail, asset forfeiture, and more. The more drugs you have in possession, the worse the penalties. A defendant who has possession of anabolic steroids on his person, or in one of his storage lockers – will be penalized as well. If you have a past history of drug convictions, then you are a repeat offender – and will incur heavy penalties.

It’s possible to reduce the penalties through a plea agreement. In some cases, a defendant can give information about a large scale drug operation, and in exchange get immunity – or get convicted of a lesser charge. Defendants can also negotiate a plea agreement – that involves forfeiture of the illegal money gotten. Bottom line, you need an NYC anabolic steroid drug crimes lawyer to help.
