Federal Drug Charges
Charlotte Federal Drug Charges Lawyer
Facing Federal Drug Charges in Charlotte, NC?
Many drug crimes may be punishable under state or federal law, or possibly even both. Burts Law, PLLC. represents clients facing federal drug charges in Charlotte, throughout North Carolina and nationwide, as well as state drug charges in North Carolina. Federal drug charges are particularly serious because they most often involve felony offenses like drug trafficking, distribution and import/export on an interstate or international level.
The penalties for drug crime convictions in federal court are also more severe than those in state courts, as the federal sentencing guidelines are harsh and federal judges may have little or no leeway in providing reduced or alternative sentencing.
Under investigation? You don’t have to face the FBI or DEA alone.
Generally speaking, the most serious drug crimes, and those which are most often investigated and prosecuted by federal agencies (the FBI, DEA, etc.), are those involving international or interstate smuggling and trafficking or those involving large amounts of Schedule I or II substances—which are considered to be the most dangerous of all controlled substances.
Examples of Schedule I and Schedule II drugs include:
Penalties for Federal Drug Crimes
A conviction for a federal drug crime may result in penalties as extensive as life imprisonment, heavy fines, probation and much more; however, specific penalties will vary depending upon the type of drug, the amount, the offense itself and federal sentencing guidelines.
