When Do Drug Crimes Result In Federal Charges?

Many times, criminal charges and penalties for drug charges are issued at the state level. However, there are instances in which these offenses are escalated to the federal level. These include:

  • Trafficking drugs across state lines
  • Being discovered with drugs on federal lands
  • Getting caught in a federal sting operation or crackdown
  • When state officials cooperate with federal agents
  • When the offense is especially severe

If you’re facing a drug charge at the federal level, the attorneys at KesslerWilliams are here to help. We don’t shy away from high-stakes cases – we tackle them head-on.

Powerful Defense In Federal Weapons Crimes

Everyone lawfully present in the United States has the constitutional right to bear arms or possess weapons. However, this right does not apply to people who:

  • Are a fugitive from justice
  • Are in the country illegally
  • Are addicted to illegal drugs
  • Have renounced their citizenship in the United States
  • Have an order of protection against them
  • Have a severe mental disorder or have been committed to a mental health facility
  • Have been convicted of a felony criminal offense
  • Have been convicted of domestic violence

People who meet the above criteria found in possession of a firearm or ammunition could face severe federal penalties.

Our attorneys frequently represent people facing federal weapons charges and successfully defend them from the penalties.
