What Is the Penalty for Drug Distribution?

Penalties for distribution charges will vary depending on the controlled substance involved, the amount and any other extenuating circumstances, such as gang involvement. All distribution charges are felony offenses, and federal agencies such as the DEA have the potential to push for these drug crimes to be prosecuted as federal cases

If convicted on a state level, penalties can include prison sentences that range from 14 months to 17 years. If the offense is committed within 1,000 feet of a school zone, severity levels and penalties are increased and minimum prison sentences begin at 46 months. Federal charges will also result in more severe punishments.

How Do Distribution Charges Arise?

Distribution charges generally arise as the result of a suspicion that the alleged offender is involved in a larger chain within the illegal drug market. This makes prosecution intense because law enforcement agencies firmly believe that arrests and convictions for distribution can create leads for more arrests and keep drugs out of the Kansas community.
