Attorney at Law



Under Federal law, certain drugs, like crystal methamphetamine, carry very stiff penalties.  A relatively small quantity will put you away for a mandatory minimum 10 years.  In addition, if you have any priors, the feds have a three strikes and your out law.  What that means is if you have one prior you face double the minimum, or 20 years, and with two priors you face life.  Since there is no parole in the federal system, there is a lot of people doing a lot of time in federal jail.

There are ways around the mandatory minimums and stiff sentences though.  If the federal government wants to speak with you about a drug offense, speak to a criminal lawyer before saying anything to the authorities.
