Drug crimes occur in many different forms and many different magnitudes. Certain drug crimes are misdemeanors, while others are felonies. Certain drug crimes are “wobblers,” meaning they can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony, depending on certain details. If you are facing drug-related charges, a Los Angeles drug crime lawyer from our firm can advise you as to the process, consequences and your options. We may also be able to influence the severity of charges filed.
Factors that may be considered in such a decision:
- The type of drug involved
- The scale of the alleged operation.
- Involvement of children in criminal undertakings
- A prior record
What Constitutes A Federal Drug Crime
A drug charge may be classified as a federal crime if your case involves a larger amount of illegal substances. For example, if you were charged with trafficking or distribution that involved crossing state or national borders, it could also make it a federal issue. If you have been accused of importing or distributing drugs, your situation could not be more serious.
Federal drug crimes bring about harsher penalties than those listed above. You will be up against the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) instead of local or state police. They have a considerably larger amount of manpower and resources, making your defense that much harder to strategize and successfully resolve. If you are facing federal drug crimes, it is crucial that you seek qualified legal representation immediately.
