Consequences of Ecstasy Possession in Illinois

In today's fast-paced society, enjoying relaxing time with friends at a club or other social setting is perfectly acceptable. Trouble occurs when a person gets caught up in the excitement of the party atmosphere and indulges in using ecstasy and/or passing along a couple tablets to a friend. No matter how few tablets you possess or deliver to someone, just one constitutes possession under Illinois law. The substantial penalties for possession and unlawful delivery, and the criminal classifications include Class 1 Felonies to Class X Felonies and prison sentences up to 60 years. With even a small number of pills in your possession, you could be facing up to $25,000 in fines and significant jail time, including:

  • Less than 15 grams or fewer than 15 tablets - Class 4 Felony, four to 15 years in prison;
  • 15-100 grams or 15-200 tablets - Class 1 Felony, four to 15 years in prison;
  • 100-400 grams or 200-600 tablets - Class 1 Felony, six to 30 years in prison;
  • 400-900 grams or 600-1,500 tablets - Class 1 Felony, eight to 40 years in prison; and
  • More than 900 grams or 1,500 tablets - Class 1 Felony, 10 to 50 years in prison.
