Federal And State Drug Distribution Defense
Police and prosecutors are continually targeting people suspected of illegally distributing drugs. In Maryland, those suspected of selling street drugs and controlled substances illegally are usually charged with drug trafficking or drug importation. Under Maryland law, drug importation charges involve bringing controlled substances into the state without authorization.
Drug distribution crimes carry severe penalties. Those accused of such crimes may be facing federal and state charges. Under federal law, many drug charges carry mandatory minimum sentences. That means if you are convicted of a federal drug offense, you could be facing significant time incarcerated.
You can be charged with possession with intent to distribute and other drug trafficking charges if:
- You have a certain quantity of drugs, enough that the law assumes you are attempting to sell
- Possessing drugs that are packaged in a particular manner
- Possessing of common items that drug dealers use in the course of doing business can all lead to unfounded charges for intent to distribute
If you are facing charges for drug distribution, trafficking or any other offense, it is critical that you seek the advice of a reliable Maryland drug distribution defense attorney.
