Your First Call When You Face Federal Drug Charges
While some individuals charged with drug-related offenses may not initially realize the significance of being charged in state versus federal court, the reality is that being charged with federal offenses may carry the potential for far more serious consequences.
Perhaps most significantly, in many instances federal courts impose far harsher sentences than state courts. This can mean many years in federal prison for a conviction of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute, delivery or trafficking controlled substances.
