Miami Federal Drug Crime Attorneys
Aggressive Legal Defense You Can Trust
According to the most recent statistics from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in 2007, 1,841,200 drug arrests were made, combining both federal and state law enforcement agencies. Miami is especially high-risk for drug possession, trafficking, and smuggling due to the endless ports of entry through the Atlantic Ocean.
The federal government takes the enforcement of drug crimes extremely seriously. Drug crimes can carry extremely high minimum mandatory sentences, or sentences that must be imposed without judicial discretion. This statutory scheme creates an incentive for defendants charged with federal drug crimes to “flip” and cooperate with the government in prosecuting other individuals involved in the drug trade in the hopes they will receive lesser sentences.
In addition to incarceration, federal drug crimes can carry serious immigration consequences, as virtually any conviction for a federal drug crime will result in the defendant’s removal from the United States if he or she is not a United States citizen.

Penalties for Federal Drug Crimes
Maximum and minimum penalties for drug crimes depend on the charge, your criminal history, and other additional factors. Many drug crimes impose minimum mandatory sentences that can only be waived by the government’s attorney. In addition to possible incarceration, convictions for federal drug crimes can result in probation, fines, and deportation.
