Felon Drug Possession Penalty?

Manchester, NH |

What is would the penalty be for a felony drug possession charge associated with being in possession of 5 Klonopin without prescription in NH?

A Class B felony is generally punishable by up to 3 1/2 to 7 years in prison plus fines, probtaion, and other conditions. But there is no typical penalty in NH for possession of Klonopin. A sentencing court considers a person's prior criminal record, the circumstances of the case, and more when deciding on an appropriate sentence. A person charged with a felony drug charge should retain legal counsel immediately.
