Gun Possession And Federal Drug Crimes

Protection Against A Range Of Gun And Drug Crimes

On their own, federal drug charges are a serious matter that can have severe consequences, including the loss of your ability to possess a firearm. When a federal drug charge also involves a federal gun possession charge, the penalties become even more draconian. If you’ve been charged with a federal drug crime, with or without a charge of gun possession, you need an aggressive attorney who will step in and defend you vigorously against the potentially severe sentences you could face.

Firearms Compound Criminal Sentences

Federal drug charges alone, even without gun involvement, trigger consequences so severe that President Obama has pushed for reform in the minimum sentencing guidelines for nonviolent drug crimes. For example, a person charged with conspiracy to deal marijuana, which is now legal in some states in small amounts, comes with a mandatory sentence of 25 years to life in prison if that person has prior convictions. With a gun involved, the sentencing gets even worse. The assistance of an experienced and committed federal drug crimes attorney is essential if you are facing these charges. A drug defense attorney will work with you every step of the way to evaluate the nature and severity of the crime, determining how to reach the best deal given your circumstances. The stakes are simply too high with these types of charges to leave your choice of your lawyer to chance.
