How Prosecutors Handle Federal Drug Cases
Prosecutors will be aggressive when it comes to unearthing evidence and presenting their arguments in the courtroom. They have access to all of the resources that the federal government has available. This means that they will not only move very quickly but also will be loaded with immense firepower at trial.
Therefore, you can be certain that the penalties for a federal drug crime are severe. This will include steep fines and lengthy prison terms. Due to the complexity of these cases, it is so important to consult with a knowledgeable attorney to come to your defense when faced with charges of a federal drug crime.
If convicted, a federal judge will use many factors to determine one’s sentencing. These factors include:
- The type of drugs
- The amount of the substance
- If another person was injured in the case
- Whether or not a weapon was used
- The location of the alleged offense
- If the defendant has a criminal record

We want to be prepared for the arguments that the prosecutors might try to levy in their pursuit of a conviction. It is important that our lawyer stays one step ahead, which may be essential to your success.
