Pennsylvania Sentencing Laws provide for certain enhancements or increases during the sentencing if the court determines that certain facts are present in a case.  For example, one such enhancement is known as the “youth/school enhancement.”  

This enhancement may be used if the court determines that the offender distributed a controlled substance to a person or persons under the age of 18, the court shall consider the range of sentences described in other criminal sections.  This enhancement may also be applicable if the court determines that the offender delivered or possessed with the intent to deliver a controlled substance within 250 feet of the real property of a school.
