The Knowledge You Need From Veteran Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers
Federal drug crimes, including trafficking and conspiracy, often carry mandatory minimum sentencing. A conviction will therefore result in time in prison, sometimes lasting for years or even decades.
If you are charged with a federal drug violation, your situation can be grim. We can help you understand your charges, your options and protect you in a criminal justice system that may not result in a fair outcome unless you proactively assert your rights.
You can be charged with federal drug trafficking simply on the basis of the amount of an illegal substance law enforcement claims was in your possession. You do not need to be actively selling any drugs to be charged with trafficking. Any time you are dealing with a substantial amount of an illegal substance, particularly heroin, cocaine and methamphetamines, you could be facing trafficking charges. Similarly, federal drug conspiracy charges can come about any time two or more people commit, or plan to commit together, a violation of a federal drug law.
