A: The penalties for selling drugs, including methamphetamine, can vary based on a number of factors including the specific details of the case, the jurisdiction, the defendant's criminal history, and the quantity of drugs involved. Generally, drug trafficking charges can result in significant penalties, including lengthy prison sentences and substantial fines. In some cases, the use of an informant as part of a drug investigation could impact the charges or potential sentence.

A: The answer in South Carolina depends on which offense, 1st, 2nd, etc. a person is charged with as to the potential sentence they could receive. This number relates to prior convictions the same person has on their record for the charge.
