A Number of Situations May Involve Federal Drug Charges
There are a number of situations where federal drug charges may be involved. If the suspect crossed state lines while committing the alleged crime; if there was a large enough quantity of drugs involved; or if federal law enforcement officials made the arrest. Federal drug charges may be brought in instances of drug possession, possession with the intent to sell, trafficking, import/export, manufacturing and distribution.
Federal drug offenses often target drug operations that are larger in scale. These are typically felony offenses and have significant penalties, including prison time. Federal sentencing guidelines will dictate how a person will be sentencing in federal court. An experienced attorney can make a difference in the outcome of your federal case.
