Drug Distribution Defense
The Impact of a Drug Distribution Conviction
It is no secret that the laws and regulations governing illegal drugs and controlled substances are never lenient on the individuals accused of a drug-related crime. Drug crimes carry severe penalties that can have numerous negative consequences on all aspects of your life. Depending on the circumstances, you could face large fines, lengthy prison sentences, irreparable damage to your criminal record, and the inability to hold certain professional licenses. If you have been arrested or charged with a drug-distribution offense, it is essential to seek out a Colorado drug-crime defense attorney immediately. A skilled attorney can fight on your behalf to have your charges dropped or your sentence reduced.
About Drug Distribution Charges
An individual may be charged with drug distribution under various circumstances. In some cases, an individual may have a significant quantity of a drug but no intention of selling those drugs to other people. Because law enforcement officers have no way of proving that you had no intention to sell these drugs, though, they will most likely automatically charge you with distribution, in addition to possession charges. This charge rests heavily on the type and quantity of drugs found in your possession. If even a small amount of certain controlled substances, such as heroin or cocaine, is found on you, you could be facing federal charges and years behind bars.
