The war on drugs has been a major area of focus for the United States government from many years now. While this has included aggressive investigations for drug possession and sales, one of the major areas of focus for the attempt at â€œcracking downâ€ on drugs is drug trafficking, or importation. While all criminal charges are extremely serious, drug trafficking is a federal crime, that is generally investigated and prosecuted by federal agencies. Defending drug trafficking charges can be extremely complex: both investigation and prosecution tend to be extraordinarily aggressive, and the potential consequences are severe. If you face federal drug trafficking charges, whether you are being investigated or have already been arrested, you need to speak with an experienced Denver federal criminal defense attorney immediately. Protecting your rights as soon as possible is vital to the successful outcome of your case, but knowing how to do that is difficult; your future is at stake and you need help.
In 2010, the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) made nearly 30,000 arrests, and seized thousands of kilograms of marijuana and cocaine and hundreds of kilograms of heroin as well as other Schedule I drugs. The penalties for importing large quantities of illegal drugs, or for bringing those drugs across state often include mandatory minimum sentencing, often resulting in very long prison sentences. When you face federal drug trafficking charges, it is vital that you understand that your life is on the line. There are many people involved in the criminal justice system: investigators, prosecutors, judges, jurors, and more. Out of all of these people, only your Denver criminal defense attorney is concerned primarily with preserving your rights, and protecting your future.
