It's tempting to think, "I'm a good person. I can't be convicted. I'm no criminal." However, don't let your confidence prevent you from arming yourself with the representation you need. While nice, wishful thinking and hope are not strategies when it comes to defending a case in federal court.

Offenses Included In Federal Drug Crimes

Usually, federal court is not where you will find someone facing a simple possession charge after getting caught with a joint or some white powder in their car. The federal drug charges that we see usually include large quantities of narcotics and ongoing, possibly years long, investigations. The federal charges that result include:

  • Possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell or distribute
  • Conspiracy to distribute narcotics
  • Possession of a firearm in connection with a federal drug crime

These charges can result in a lengthy prison sentence, fines, a criminal record, and damage to your Second Amendment right to bear arms. Whether your charges involve marijuana, opiates, MDMA, cocaine base ("crack"), cocaine, methamphetamines or another illegal drug, one thing is certain: you need an experienced criminal defense attorney building the strongest possible defense for you.

Penalty Structure For Federal Drug Crime Convictions

A conviction on a federal drug charge will often leave you stuck between a rock and a hard place. There is no wiggle room for lenient sentencing when a mandatory minimum sentence is involved, as in the case in many federal drug prosecutions.

When a mandatory minimum sentence is at issue, there are only a few ways to avoid that mandatory time. The best way is to avoid conviction entirely. Another option to avoid a mandatory minimum is through plea negotiations. Either of these options will be aided by the legal defense of a proven Charlotte defense lawyer from Roberts Law Group, PLLC. Call us to discuss these and other options.

We always pursue the best possible outcome whether that is available through plea negotiations, litigation of an illegal seizure, or trial. Our firm has the skills and resources to protect your interests at the negotiating table and in the courtroom.

Don't make the mistake so many other defendants have made and assume things will work out in your favor. If you are charged with a federal drug crime involving intent to distribute or conspiracy, chances are the Government is seeking a lengthy prison sentence and can use the resources of the US to achieve that end. Failure to take your situation seriously and act accordingly can result in you spending a good chunk of your life behind bars and having limited opportunities upon your release.
