What You Need to Know About Federal Drug Charges

If you or a loved one has been accused of violating federal drug laws, you may be wondering what exactly that means. At the Spodek Law Group, our experienced attorneys can provide the guidance and support you need to navigate this challenging situation. Here’s what you need to know about federal drug charges.

Understanding Federal Drug Laws

Federal drug charges refer to accusations that a person has violated the Controlled Substances Act, which was first passed by Congress in 1971. This law has been amended many times since its creation, and it applies to a variety of illegal drugs, including cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana (in large quantities).

While each state also has its own laws about illegal drugs, federal drug cases generally involve larger quantities of illegal drugs and more serious drug trafficking organizations. This is because the federal government is typically only interested in cases that justify the use of federal resources. As a result, if you’re caught with small quantities of illegal drugs that are only for personal use, you’re more likely to be prosecuted by the state government.

What is Possession with Intent to Distribute?

Possession with intent to distribute an illegal drug means that a person knowingly possessed an illegal drug with the intent to distribute it. “Possession” is a legal concept that can be difficult to understand, as it can include direct physical control over something or the power and intention to exercise control over it. Even if the drugs belong to someone else, you can still be charged with possession.

Proving intent to distribute can be a little more straightforward. Typically, possessing an amount that is more than someone would have for personal use indicates that the drugs are intended for distribution. However, intent to distribute can also exist “with or without any financial interest in the transaction.”

Understanding Conspiracy Charges

A conspiracy charge involves an agreement between two or more people to join together to accomplish an unlawful purpose, such as drug trafficking. Even if not all members of the conspiracy possess the drugs, they can still be charged with drug crimes.

Potential Punishments for Federal Drug Crimes

If you’re found guilty of a federal drug crime, the judge will consider a variety of factors when deciding on your sentence. These factors can include the type and amount of drug involved, your role in the drug trafficking organization, whether guns or violence were involved, and your criminal history.

Many federal drug crimes also carry mandatory minimum sentences, which means that the judge must impose a certain minimum sentence if you’re convicted. However, there are ways to avoid mandatory minimum sentences, such as cooperating with the government or qualifying for the “safety valve.”

Don’t Risk Your Future with a Public Defender

While there may be many criminal defense lawyers in Queens and New York, a public defender may not offer the same advantages as law firms in private practice. They are often understaffed and lack the necessary resources, and the public defender’s offices are usually the first ones to feel budget constraints. Is that a chance you really want to take, considering the tough New York laws associated with drug charges?

Trust Your Future to Spodek Law Group

At Spodek Law Group, our Queens criminal defense attorney and support staff present as a solid and seamless team with a shared goal of representing our clients during what’s often an overwhelming time in their lives. We understand that every case is unique and requires personalized attention.
