Drug Distribution Charges Defense

Drug-related crimes, including drug distribution, involve the possession, manufacture, or distribution of illegal drugs or controlled substances known for their potential for abuse. Violating state and federal laws through the selling, transporting, importing, or illegally distributing narcotics or prescription medications without authorization can change the course of the rest of your life. In fact, according to national statistics, drug crimes account for roughly 40% of all federal prosecutions. If convicted of drug distribution, you could face a prison sentence of 10 years to life, fines amounting to millions of dollars, and other potential penalties. Nearly all serious federal drug crimes are subject to mandatory minimum sentencing laws that establish specified minimum prison terms.

If you have been arrested, formally charged, or believe you are under investigation for drug distribution or drug trafficking, you need an experienced federal criminal defense attorney to represent you. The legal team at Spodek Law Group, led by Attorney Todd Spodek, has the knowledge, experience, and expertise to defend you against federal drug distribution charges. Our team of accomplished criminal defense lawyers at Federal Criminal Defense Pro specializes in representing clients in a wide range of federal drug cases. We understand the complexities of the state and federal legal systems and are committed to fighting for your rights.

Affordable Federal Drug Distribution Defense Attorney

Successfully beating federal criminal charges for drug distribution requires the knowledge and expertise of a seasoned criminal defense attorney. Attorney Todd Spodek has years of experience representing clients in drug cases in both state and federal court, and he has a clear understanding of the state and federal legal systems. The federal government is notoriously tough on drug-related crimes, and federal drug charges are among the most difficult charges to defend. With an established record of success handling federal drug prosecutions, Attorney Todd Spodek is the lawyer you want defending you against federal drug distribution charges.

What is Drug Distribution?

Drug distribution is the crime of selling, manufacturing, delivering, or importing illegal drugs or unlawful controlled substances, such as marijuana, heroin, methamphetamine, or cocaine. This federal law also applies to the illegal sale or distribution of narcotics or prescription drugs, such as oxycodone, amphetamines, fentanyl, and hydromorphone.

What is a Controlled Substance?

A controlled substance is a drug or chemical whose possession, manufacture, or use is regulated by the government, including illicit drugs and prescription medications that may be abused or cause addiction. The federal Controlled Substances Act categorizes controlled substances into schedules, with Schedule I drugs being considered the most dangerous and having no currently accepted medical use, and Schedule V drugs having accepted medical uses and a low potential for abuse or dependence.

When is Drug Distribution a Federal Offense?

Drug distribution is a crime under both state and federal law. However, federal criminal charges may come into play if you are accused of distributing large quantities of drugs, or of transporting, delivering, or importing drugs across state lines. For example, federal drug distribution charges often occur when a person attempts to sell drugs to an undercover federal agent. Generally speaking, most drug possession charges in California are prosecuted at the state level, while drug manufacturing, distribution, and trafficking charges are more likely to be tried in the federal court system.

Penalties for a Drug Distribution Conviction

Federal drug cases usually involve mandatory minimum prison sentences, which require that a defendant convicted of a federal drug crime serves a minimum term in prison, rather than leaving the sentencing up to the judge overseeing the case. A federal drug distribution conviction carries severe penalties, including a significant term of imprisonment, fines, and forfeiture of personal property.

Defense Strategies for Drug Distribution Charges 
Your attorney may also be able to challenge the prosecution’s evidence by attacking the credibility of the prosecution’s witnesses or the validity of the forensic evidence. For example, if you are accused of drug distribution based on the testimony of a confidential informant, your attorney may be able to impeach the informant’s credibility or show that the informant’s testimony is unreliable. Similarly, your attorney may be able to challenge the prosecution’s forensic evidence, such as drug test results, by arguing that the testing procedures were faulty or that the results were mishandled.
