Memphis Drug Crimes

Drug Crime Lawyer Serving Memphis

Federal drug crimes generally stem from investigations by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). However, in some circumstances, states charges can be transferred to federal court and prosecuted as federal crimes. In any case those that are charged can deal with monumental consequences and should retain the services of a Memphis federal criminal attorney to protect their rights. The penalties for drug related offenses in the federal system are more severe than in the state system. There also is no federal parole, so the convicted defendant will serve at least 85% of the sentence received. A person charged with a serious drug crime is presumed to have no bail set, and it is the burden of a defendant to show why a bond amount should be set. The Sentencing Guidelines can produce harsh penalties, resulting in relatively small amounts of a controlled substance producing a long prison sentence. With mandatory minimum sentences, a conviction for the more serious drugs, such as heroin or cocaine, can produce a sentence unthinkable in state court. Under 18 U.S.C. 3591(b), the death penalty may be imposed for trafficking in large quantities of drugs. Your life is on the line in a federal drug case, so you need an attorney who understands how the federal system works and who has been successful in defending drug cases.

Contact a Memphis drug crime lawyer from the firm today for exceptional defense against drug related accusations.
