Federal Drug Trafficking
One of the most aggressively prosecuted crimes, on both the state and federal level is drug trafficking. If you have been accused of a federal drug trafficking crime, you have good reason to fear for your freedom and financial security as a federal drug trafficking conviction can take both away. Do not let the prospect of a federal drug charge intimidate or overwhelm you, however. Each and every person accused of a crime, even a federal crime, has the right to quality representation and if you want the best chance to beat the federal charges against you, quality representation is the only thing standing in the way of a conviction; this is not the time to just find any criminal defense attorney, you need to find the right attorney.
Serious Charges Require Serious Representation
At Musca Law, our Florida federal criminal defense lawyers have the necessary experience defending against federal charges to get favorable results, which requires seasoned skills, knowledge, and resources. Federal courts do not work in the same way as state courts, and so hiring an attorney with federal court experience is essential to a strong defense, especially since there will likely be a number of federal agencies involved in the case, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
Federal Drug Trafficking Penalties
Drug trafficking is not only the movement of controlled dangerous substances into the country, but may also include the selling, purchasing, manufacturing, or delivering of the controlled substance.
In Florida, drug trafficking penalties are dependent on the controlled substance in question as well as the amount of the substance, but can carry a prison sentence, as well as fines as high as $500,000.
Federal drug trafficking penalties are also dependent on the type of controlled substance and the amount, in addition to whether the charge would be a first, second, or subsequent offense. If you are convicted for federal drug trafficking, depending on the drug (Schedule) and the circumstances, you can face years to life in federal prison as well as a fine that can reach into the millions. Such consequences don’t just affect a person’s life, they can ruin it.
