What type of sentence do you face for a MDMA / ecstacy manufacture or delivery charge?

Unlawful delivery or manufacture of MDMA is a serious felony charge.  Often the charge results in a prison sentence.  The two primary factors which will factor into a sentence are the amount of MDMA involved and the criminal history of the defendant.  Cases involving a substantial amount (50+ grams or 250+ pills, tablets or capsules) of MDMA / ecstacy often result in prison sentences.  See ORS 475.925(2)(d).

What type of sentence do you face for a MDMA / ecstacy possession charge?

Unlawful possession of MDMA can be either a felony or misdemeanor crime.  Usually possession of MDMA will result in a probation sentence and sometimes jail time.  Substance abuse treatment will be ordered as a condition of probation.
