We may be able to help you beat federal drug trafficking charges

Last week's blog post discussed the scheduling of illegal substances and how schedule determination can affect potential penalties. Drug trafficking is aggressively prosecuted in our country as the War on Drugs continues to rage. Even seemingly minor drug crimes can be charged as a federal drug offense, forcing you to confront the possibility of years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. Additionally, a criminal conviction can ruin your reputation, ability to find housing, and even obtain an education.

Schedules of illegal controlled substances

Drugs are unfortunately not an uncommon issue in the United States. Although the dangers and health hazards of drugs have been well documented throughout the years, some still continue to choose to get involved with illegal and often harmful substances. Sometimes, this participation goes beyond simply indulging in the drugs and moves into the illegal realm of drug trafficking. While drug trafficking penalties are indeed serious offenses, there are many different ways in which one can punished for such crimes.

Two California women face identity theft charges

As the holidays quickly approach and Californians are making last-minute purchases, they may be afraid of credit card fraud and identity theft. While the concern may be legitimate, they might also be worried that they will be on the other end of the stick, facing criminal accusations. When this is the case, accused individuals should immediately consider their defense options.

The importance of proper representation in federal crimes

A few weeks ago on the blog we discussed federal kidnapping charges and their potential penalties. Unfortunately, the law in this area, like much of the federal penal code, is complicated. Therefore, some Californians may find themselves facing kidnapping allegations without even knowing that they have done anything wrong. For example, a non-custodial parent may take a child across state lines, not knowing that he or she needs permission to do so. In this instance, the non-custodial parent may be facing significant penalties, including prison and the loss of access to his or her child.

What are some different types of explosives charges?

There are many laws regulating the manufacturing, importation, distribution, and use of explosive devices. The United States government tries to restrict access to these materials to prevent dangerous situations from arising. However, the plethora of statutory law surrounding this area can make it extremely difficult to understand, leaving you susceptible to criminal charges. Therefore, it may be beneficial for you to understand a few explosives offenses so that you know how to avoid them and defend against any such allegations.
