Being charged with any type of crime can be a frightening and uncertain experience. However, when the accusations involve drug sales or distribution, the stakes are even higher.
Prosecutors have been much more aggressive with all types of drug crimes in the past few years, but even more so with those accused of selling drugs. When your freedom is at stake, you need knowledgeable legal representation to guide you through the process.
While those accused of possession may be viewed as addicts and given more compassion and alternative sentencing options, drug distribution charges are rarely treated in the same manner. These charges are often prosecuted at the federal level, meaning that even first-time offenders can find themselves facing the full weight of the U.S. government and its resources.
There are many different components to these types of cases, from the details of the investigation and the arrest procedures all the way to the plea bargain, trial or appeal. Those without a law background may not be aware of how each step affects those that come after it. One misunderstanding or missed opportunity can change the course of the case.
