Criminal Lawyers explain drug manufacturing penalties

A drug manufacture charge entails that you have allegedly been caught preparing, producing, processing, packaging or labelling an illegal substance. The common penalties for the offence of drug manufacturing are:

  • a section 10: whereby the charges are dismissed and there is no conviction recorded

  • a fine: the maximum penalty being $5,500 for a small quantity

  • good behaviour bond

  • community service order

  • suspended sentence

  • periodic detention

  • home detention

  • prison sentence: the maximum sentence for a small quantity is 2 years (if sentenced in the local court), or 15 years (if sentenced in the district court)
