If a person is facing crystal meth possession charges with the intent to sell, he or she may face up to 10 years in jail as well as fines between $1,000 and $10,000. For defendants who have one prior conviction, the minimum jail sentence rises to three and a half years and higher fines, and any subsequent convictions will raise the penalty again.

Crystal meth addiction is strong and carries harsh withdrawal symptoms, including severe depression.
