What Is Penalty for PCS?

PCS, or possession of controlled substance, is a class D felony in Northern Kentucky.  Unlike most class D felonies, which are punishable from 1-5 years, PCS is punishable to a maximum of 3 years of incarceration.  If the offender is trafficking, the charges are likely C felonies, punishable by 5-10 years if they remain in state court.  If the quantity of the drug is excessive, this may also materialize into federal charges, with its own set of sentencing guidelines. Additionally, pursuant to the KRS 218A.1415, there is a presumption of probation or deferred prosecution in first offender PCS cases.  Most often the courts are looking to assure treatment for the offender to prevent repeat of the offense, or injury/death to the offender.  Heroin is currently the most common substance which accounts for the majority of PCS cases, however cocaine and meth still seem to find there way into the system. PCS and all felony charges are serious charges with possibility of jail or prison sentences.  If you have a felony charge in Northern Kentucky, call Michael Bouldin for a consultation at 859-581-6453.
