If you have been involved in the world of drugs in Queens, you might have found yourself facing some sort of criminal charge because of it. Drug dealing is not something that the law enforcement officers in Queens take lightly, and people end up facing serious charges related to drugs all the time. Right now, you might be feeling incredibly stressed out about your situation and your future, but we are here to help. We have a ton of experience in helping Queens residents and others throughout New York with their drug-related charges, including charges for selling or trafficking drugs. We are also here to help you with your legal situation.

Drug Dealing Charges in Queens, New York

From selling small bags of marijuana to a few friends to being involved in a much larger drug trafficking operation, there are many different ways that a person can be charged with dealing drugs. Charges vary from situation to situation; obviously, someone who is caught selling small quantities of marijuana to a few people in the neighborhood probably will not end up with the same criminal charges as someone who is caught in a large-scale operation that sells cocaine or heroin. However, even though these situations do differ, they do have a lot of similarities as well.

If you have been accused of selling drugs, then the prosecution will fight to prove that you were, in fact, involved in selling drugs to others when you go to court. If you are found guilty, you could face a host of very serious consequences.

Potential Penalties for Drug Dealing

For first-time offenders who are convicted of selling or trafficking drugs, the penalties can still be quite steep. You could be facing between one to 2.5 years in prison, even for a first-time offense.

If you are convicted of a more serious drug dealing-related felony, the consequences can be even steeper. For example, you could actually be facing eight to 20 years in prison. For major drug trafficking charges, defendants are sometimes sentenced to life in prison.

Even beyond prison time, you do have other things to worry about in regards to your drug dealing charges as well. Some people find themselves under long terms of post-release supervision after getting released from prison for a drug charge. Finding a job or renting an apartment can be a whole lot harder after a drug dealing conviction as well.

There are various ways that attorneys work to defend their clients against charges for drug dealing. Your lawyer could argue that the drugs were not actually yours or that you were not actually trying to sell them. There are also other potential defenses, such as the entrapment defense.

In some cases, lawyers work with prosecutors to strike up plea deals to help minimize the consequences that their clients face, even if they do end up with a felony conviction. The basic details of your case are going to make a big difference when it comes to what your lawyer can do for you in court, so it’s a good idea to meet with a lawyer now so that you will have time to talk about your case.

How Our Lawyers Can Help You

If you are currently facing an upcoming court date that is related to selling drugs, then you could be really nervous about what is going to happen. After all, you might realize that you are potentially facing jail or prison time and a lot of other stiff consequences. Luckily, you do not have to go through this tough situation on your own. We have a team of experiences lawyers who work with individuals from Queens and elsewhere in New York with their drug-related charges on a daily basis. We can help fight for you to help you keep your freedom.

Of course, since every drug-related charge and situation is different, we are going to need to talk to you about your case. If you schedule a consultation with us, we will have the opportunity to talk to you about the details surrounding your drug dealing charges. Then, we can work on putting a plan into action to defend you to the best of our ability.

Queens Drug Dealing Lawyers and Attorneys: An Inside Look

Queens, New York is home to over 2 million people, making it the 2nd most populous borough in New York City. With a large population comes a fair share of crime, including drug-related offenses. This article takes an in-depth look at drug dealing crimes in Queens, the lawyers who defend accused drug dealers, and some high-profile cases.

New York has strict drug laws that impose harsh penalties for drug possession and distribution crimes. Some key facts:

  • Possession of any amount of an illegal drug, even marijuana, is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 1 year in jail.
  • Possessing larger amounts or intent to sell leads to felony charges with lengthy prison sentences.
  • Sale and distribution of drugs is prosecuted aggressively, with mandatory minimum sentences.
  • Even low-level drug dealers can face 10+ years behind bars.
  • Conspiracy charges are common for anyone involved in drug operations.
  • Asset forfeiture laws allow the government to seize money and property from accused drug dealers before conviction.

With the “war on drugs” in full force, Queens drug crime lawyers have their work cut out for them.
