Question: What is the punishment for selling controlled substances (Tylenol 3) at school?

Answer: Arizona law is tough on crime in drug free school zones. A person who is convicted of selling prescription only drugs in a school zone has violated Arizona law (ARS §13-3411(A)(1)). This is a class 6 felony.

Because the activity took place in a school zone, the law increases the punishment for the crime by adding 1 year to the sentence a Judge imposes. A prison term is also mandatory (which means NO PROBATION). A mandatory fine is also imposed which is, at a minimum, $2,000 plus a court surcharge of 77%.

So, upon conviction of this crime, the Judge could impose a prison sentence for an individual to:

-a minimum of 1.5 years,

-a presumptive of 2 years, or

-a maximum of 3 years.
