Suffolk County Loitering Unlawful Use of a Controlled Substance

Loitering unlawful use of a controlled substance in violation of penal Law 240.36-a person is guilty of loitering in the first degree when he loiters or remains in any place with one or more persons for the purpose of unlawfully using or possessing a controlled substance as defined in section 220.00 - misdemeanor charge.

These charges result when an individual is attempting to purchase illegal drugs or is in a known location where drugs are being sold and the individual does not have a reason to be in such an area. Depending upon the individual's prior criminal record affects the outcome of any type of plea bargain. First - time offenders will usually have to do community service and the charges will be reduced to a violation. Individuals with criminal records will be put on probation or will do jail time.
