Experienced Wisconsin Drug Crimes Attorney
When it comes to illegal drugs, federal cases are different from state criminal cases in that they often involve greater legal complexities and higher stakes. Federal courts have different rules and procedures, so it is critical to work with a defense attorney with experience defending cases in federal courts when facing federal drug charges. Our attorneys have experience defending cases involving federal agencies such as the FBI, DEA, or Homeland Security.
We understand that every case is unique, and we will work closely with you to develop a custom-tailored drug crimes defense strategy. Our attorneys will thoroughly review the evidence against you, determine if our rights were violated during the investigation, and address any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. After a thorough case evaluation, we will use this information to build a strong defense on your behalf.
Our attorneys have successfully handled federal drug crime charges, including:
- Drug trafficking
- Drug Possession with intent to distribute
When Does A Wisconsin Drug Charge Become A Federal Drug Case?
In most states (and including Wisconsin), a drug charge can become a federal drug case if it involves any of the following:
- Movement of drugs across state lines. This includes transporting drugs, receiving drugs that have been transported across state lines, or using a facility in interstate commerce to facilitate drug trafficking.
- Sale of drugs on federal property. This includes federal buildings, national parks, and Indian reservations.
- Use of the U.S. Postal Service or a private carrier to transport drugs.
- Conspiracy to commit a drug crime that involves two or more people and crosses state lines.
- Manufacturing of a controlled substance on a large scale.
- Possession of a large quantity of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
- Use of a firearm in connection with a drug crime.
- Money laundering related to a drug crime.
In addition to these specific factors, the federal government may also choose to prosecute a drug case if it involves a large-scale operation, a significant amount of money, or a significant threat to public safety.
It is important to note that the federal government has broad discretion in deciding whether to prosecute a drug case. Even if a drug crime meets all of the criteria for a federal prosecution, the government may still choose to prosecute the case at the state level.
Without an experienced Wisconsin drug defense attorney, however, you are rolling the dice on federal sentencing minimums, teams of federal prosecutors cooperating with state authorities to build a case against you, and the potential loss of your rights to the federal government.
