Florida Drug Trafficking Defense Lawyer
Protect Yourself from Severe Penalties with Musca LawOne 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.
If you want a chance to beat the federal charges against you, quality representation is the only thing standing between you and a conviction. This is not the time to find just any criminal defense attorney, you need to find the right attorney. At Musca Law, our Florida federal criminal defense lawyers have the necessary experience, skills, knowledge, and resources to fight against federal charges and obtain favorable results. Federal courts do not work in the same way as state courts. 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 PenaltiesDrug 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.
Federal drug trafficking penalties are dependent on the following:
- The type of controlled substance
- The amount of the controlled substance
- Whether the charge would be a first, second, or subsequent offense
If you are convicted for federal drug trafficking, depending on the drug 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.
