Sometimes, a drug crime allegation will lead to a person facing charges on the federal level. There are many different reasons why it can be a very serious thing to be facing federal drug charges. One is that many federal drug charges carry mandatory minimums.

Possession with intent charges in Illinois

Simple possession charges are not the only type of drug possession charge that can be brought against an individual here in Illinois. Depending on the specifics of the allegations, a person accused of possessing a controlled substance may face a heftier class of possession charge: possession with the intent to deliver or manufacture.

Plea offers in cocaine cases

Authorities put a lot of effort into getting convictions in cocaine cases. One tactic prosecutors sometimes use to try to secure convictions in cases involving cocaine possession charges or other charges related to cocaine is to offer the defendant a plea deal containing promises to drop or reduce certain charges, make recommendations for lower sentencing or provide other leniency in exchange for a guilty plea.
