Federal Drug Smuggling

Federal Drug Smuggling Criminal Defense

Illegal drugs can be home-grown or imported. When drugs cross state or national borders, the crime becomes a federal one with different laws, fines, penalties and sentences. Even the prosecutors are different. In general, a federal prosecutor is a bit more experienced and better prepared than a district attorney.

When facing a federal prosecutor, it is a wise idea to have a criminal defense attorney who has extensive experience in federal courts and appeals.

A Word About Gang Membership

If a drug smuggling charge is congruent with gang membership, additional sentences can be imposed. Basically, if you admit to being in a gang, or it can be proved that you're in a gang, you may spend additional time in jail if convicted.

You may be charged with a gang-related offense — even if you are not officially a gang member. In this regard, Ohio's definition of your membership in the gang may be broader than the gang's definition of membership.

For those charged with a federal drug smuggling offense while in a gang, it is highly recommended that you retain your own criminal defense attorney. A frequent occurrence in gang-related federal drug smuggling cases is that members will testify against one another. Gang members or fellow drug smugglers will turn on others and name gang members, non-gang members, coyotes and mules.

Attorney Kirk Migdal will look out for your best interests and work to obtain an optimal outcome in your case.
