A: They are looking at some considerable time, given the number of dosage units involved. That being said, even with a firearm enhancement, there is still a possibility of having it resolved with minimal or no jail time; however, it all depends on the circumstances. I would highly recommend reaching out to an experienced criminal defense attorney to discuss further.
