your dad is in a lot of trouble and needs serious rehab and a good lawyer........... I know he's your dad and you love him but he is an addict.
Meth is his mistress and she has her claws in him deep. You cant save him. He has choices and consequences the same as we all do.
Let go and let God.
You need alanon and a life. take a good look you dont want that for your self do you? Did he think about the consequences of his choices affect you,?
I hope that he has a good lawyer he is alot of trouble.
I hope you have a home and dont get placed in foster care.......

seriously, get a lawyer, and agree to a plea bargain. he might get probation if his lawyer is good enough and the judge is in a good mood that day. i got caught with lots of coke and weed, intent to deliver, and tax stamp violation 6 years ago and i got 3 years probation, and no jail time.

Well, I'm sorry to say but he is probably looking
at a lil bit of jail time & alot of probation & fees to
pay.

Depending on the state where you live and the judge your dad is dealing with sometimes determine his sentence. He can also plea bargain in which he get convicted but his sentences is reduced. The DA might make a deal with him. In most states both offenses are felonies in which he can get anything over a year. Good luck!

I see you wrote that he had over 28.5 grams of a controlled substance, which will automatically give him a trafficking charge. That is unfortunate. If I had to guess, he will get anywhere from 8-15 years in prison, and after that, he'll have drug-offenders probation for 5-10 years. But, I have heard of people getting as little as 6 years with the proper defense. Unless you're loaded, I doubt he'll have that luxury. The people above me said you should cut ties with him, and that is true. I would strongly advise it. Don't visit, take phone calls, write or convey with him anymore. He's done. If you care, just hope that he won't have a hard-charging judge that will give the max no matter what defense he prepares.

my dad got busted with 6.0 grams and he got 7 years in the pin and 10 years probation when he gets out.they charged him with intent to sell.and he didn't have scales or baggies or any thing else,and it was his first offense to.

Why are you planning a defense?

Life I hope! He's a dealer of death, fact! The amount of drugs shouldnt matter much, he was caught with a scale and baggies that alone is proof of intent to sell. I just hope you have the common sense not to follow in his footsteps!

Your dad is looking at some pretty heavy prison time, I'm afraid. This would be classified as "Possession with Intent to Distribute," being that he had that much and he also had baggies and a scale. He may be looking at Federal time because there is a major crackdown on methamphetamine usage and distribution, regardless of whether or not this is his first offense.

Your best bet would be to contact a lawyer. Most, if not all, lawyers offer a free consultation.

to bad you have a meth head for a dad, not your fault, break away from him and don't look back because he loves meth more than you. he is not worth your worry.

Well its a felony, at least 5 years in prison.


OC
In federal sentencing, 5-year mandatory sentences are triggered by trafficking in 5 grams of meth-actual or 50 grams of meth-mixture; 10-year mandatory sentences are triggered by trafficking in 50 grams of meth-actual or 500 grams of meth-mixture. A mixture containing methamphetamine weighing 10 grams at 50 percent purity could either be sentenced as 10 grams of meth-mixture or 5 grams of meth-actual (although the higher sentence will prevail).
