The Dangers of Meth Labs and the Importance of Choosing Spodek Law Group for Your Legal Representation
Methamphetamine, a highly addictive illegal drug, is being produced in homes using readily available ingredients from grocery and big box stores. This practice poses an imminent danger to the user and their surroundings as improper handling and combination of materials can result in a toxic explosion. Drug addicts and dealers alike are resorting to creating methamphetamine at home through the use of lab equipment, chemical reagents, and solvents.
Spodek Law Group understands the risks associated with this dangerous practice. They have extensive experience in handling cases relating to unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine in the third degree under New York Penal Code ¬ß 220.73.
What Constitutes Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine?
New York Penal Code ¬ß 220.73 prohibits the manufacture of methamphetamine in the third degree if you possess any two or more articles of lab equipment or two or more meth precursors, chemical reagents or solvents; one article of equipment with three or more meth precursors, chemical reagents or solvents; a meth precursor mixed together with a reagent or solvent; two or more known meth chemical reagents mixed with a solvent.
For instance, consider a search warrant executed by police officers who discovered containers containing acetone, pseudoephedrine, red phosphorus, and sodium hydroxide inside someone’s garage but did not find any mixed ingredients nor equipment used for mixing them. The man was not charged with manufacturing meth because none were found on his premises.
It’s important to note that other offenses related to unlawful manufacture include criminal possession (first-degree) under New York Penal Law ¬ß 220.71; criminal possession (third-degree) under New York Penal Code ¬ß 220.70; criminal possession (precursors) under New York Penal Law ¬ß 220.72; unlawful manufacture (first-degree) under New York Penal Code ¬ß 220.75; and unlawful manufacture (second-degree) under New York Penal Code ¬ß 220.74.
Possible Defenses Against Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine
If you are charged with third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, a successful challenge to the method used by police officers in discovering the materials can be made. According to the law, for a search to be conducted, police must demonstrate probable cause. If the search was illegal, anything produced from it would be inadmissible in court, including illicit drugs.
The Sentence for Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine
Since this offense is categorized as a class D felony, conviction can result in up to 17 years imprisonment depending on various factors such as prior felony convictions. A convicted individual may also face five years probation term and fines. It’s important to note that being convicted of any crime incurs mandatory fees and permanent criminal records.
