Operating a Drug Factory in Hartford

Knowledge and Resources for Effective Defense

Operating a drug factory is serious offense. If you are under investigation or charged with this crime, it is in your best interest to retain the services of an experienced Hartford criminal defense lawyer. Under state law, a drug factory is defined as:

"any place used for the manufacturing, mixing, compounding, refining, processing, packaging, distributing, storing, keeping, holding, administering, or assembling illegal substances . . . or any building, rooms, or location which contains equipment or paraphernalia used for this purpose."

Penalties for Operating a Drug Factory

In order to convict a defendant of this drug crime, the prosecution must prove certain elements beyond a reasonable doubt. Our Hartford criminal lawyers can assess your case and provide possible defensive strategies. We work hard to obtain the best possible outcome for you.

The State must prove:

  • That the defendant knowingly possessed drug paraphernalia;
  • That the possession of that paraphernalia took place in a drug factory situation; and
  • That the purpose was the preparation of a specific controlled substance.

Criminal penalties for a first conviction include up to 2 years in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. For a subsequent conviction you face up to 10 years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000. Do not face the threat of these penalties being imposed upon you without the defense and protection of a seasoned Hartford criminal defense attorney. Our team will aggressively work to see that your rights are upheld. We are available to our clients 24/7. Contact us today for more information.
