Drug-related offenses are not only common but often result in imprisonment. It is estimated that approximately one-half of all inmates now in federal prisons are incarcerated for drug offenses.
Drug offenses often involve more than one person. As a result, prosecutors regularly charge a conspiracy in addition to other allegations. Most drug offenses can be a violation of both state and federal laws and usually may be brought in either jurisdiction.
Every alleged offense and every defendant is different. That certainly applies to drug-related offenses. In these matters, it is important to be represented by a criminal defense lawyer who has a proven track record of success.
