Federal Drug Charges in New York City
NYC Criminal Attorney
Being charged with a
federal crime is always much more serious than having being tried in a state court.
Federal prosecutors have nearly unlimited resources to pursue their
investigations, and under the federal sentencing guidelines, punishments for convictions
are usually much harsher. If you are facing federal drug charges, you
can be facing serious penalties if you are convicted. Give yourself the
best chance at retaining your freedom by contacting a New York City criminal
lawyer from our firm today. You need aggressive legal support if you are
going to defeat your federal drug charges.
If prosecutors believe that your alleged
drug crimes included
drug trafficking or drug distribution, especially on a large-scale enterprise, or across
state lines, this will bump your drug charges up to a federal matter.
Because federal prosecutors will be relentlessly pursuing charges against
you, you need to give your attorney as much as time as possible to work
on devising a defense strategy for you. Do not hesitate to contact an
attorney as soon as possible. While it is generally believed that penalties
for convictions involving
marijuana charges are less severe than convictions involving "harder" drugs, such as
narcotics, at the federal level all penalties are severe. Do not take your charges
lightly, or you could be facing serious time in federal prison, monetary
penalties in the thousands or tens of thousands of dollars, and probation.
