Why federal drug charges are so serious

If you are facing federal drug charges in North Carolina, it is important for you to understand how they can differ from state drug charges. A conviction under federal drug laws can result in a substantially longer sentence than similar state drug convictions.

The federal court system may also allow different types of evidence in the case against you. It is crucial for you to understand the differences, the potential penalties, and the types of evidence that can be used by the U.S. Attorney's Office in an effort to seek a sentence enhancement against you.

If you do not understand how the federal process works and how to defend against your charges, you could potentially face the maximum possible penalty. There are a number of strategies that you might be able to use to seek mitigation of your potential sentence or to present a strong defense to your charges. Understanding your charges and the potential outcomes is crucial. In some cases, it may be possible for you to secure an agreement to a lesser offense or to avoid charges altogether.

At our law firm, our experienced criminal defense lawyers have years of experience representing people in the federal system. We understand how federal criminal procedure works and how to leverage the evidence to mitigate against the potential consequences our clients might face. Our lawyers offer an honest evaluation of the potential outcomes for our clients and work hard to achieve the most favorable resolution of their charges as possible. If you have been indicted for federal drug offenses, you might want to review the information on our federal drug charges page. The information that we have gathered might give you an idea of what might happen and why it is important to mount a smart and aggressive defense.
