Federal Drug Trafficking Charges
Federal Criminal Defense Attorney
Federal drug trafficking is a crime that involves the cultivation or manufacturing of an illegal drug. Once the drug has been prepared, it is distributed, sold, transported, imported, or exported across state lines, or internationally. The federal government has devised its own set of mandatory minimum penalties for trafficking. These penalties can vary considerably depending on the type of drug involved in the crime, and the amount found. A person convicted on federal drug trafficking charges may face fines in the millions of dollars (in some cases up to $20 million) and a prison sentence that lasts for decades or even the duration of their lifetime. Certain factors can serve to enhance the penalties levied at a person convicted of trafficking, such as the sale or distribution of drugs to minors or near a school, or the possession of a prior criminal record.
