Information On Drug Crimes
Drug crimes run the gamut from simple possession to distribution by drug trafficking organizations (DTO), implicating a wide range of people at every stage. Being involved with illegal drugs on any level opens you up to controlled substance charges, and it’s important for you to know your rights inside and out. You do not even have to make the delivery to be charged and convicted of distribution of a controlled substance. At the federal level, the United States will charge everyone in the DTO with the same conspiracy charge, exposing even the littlest fish to a mandatory 10-year sentence.
In a drug conspiracy case, the defendant doesn’t have to know all the details of the conspiracy to be convicted, although it does require more than mere presence.
Laws On Manufacturing Drugs
The penalties for drug manufacturing vary depending on several factors, including the type of drug and number of drugs manufactured, whether it is a state or federal case, whether the accused person was within 1,000 feet of a school, how many prior controlled substance drug offenses the defendant has and more.
Forfeiture Of Assets
It is grossly unfair for the government to seize your property before you’ve been convicted. You need an experienced defense attorney to protect your assets.
Possession Of A Controlled Substance
The controlled substance category comprises any drug or chemical that is controlled by the government. It is unlawful to possess, manufacture or distribute controlled substances.
- Drug possession
- Possession with intent to sell
- Manufacturing of a controlled substance
- Drug distribution
- Drug trafficking
- Possession within 1,000 feet of a school
- Possession and delivery of a controlled substance
- Possession of drug-related paraphernalia
- Medical marijuana law violations
- Operating under the influence of a controlled substance
It’s very important that you find an experienced drug charge attorney who has the results and knowledge to guide you through this difficult time.
