Federal Sentencing Guidelines And Other Factors That Will Affect Your Case
When deciding on the drug trafficking penalties that a convicted individual will face, federal judges review the federal sentencing guidelines. These guidelines list various penalties – none of them lenient – based on the level of offense and the defendant’s prior criminal record. The penalties will also differ in severity based on factors such as:
- The type of drug involved (meth, marijuana, etc.) and the amount
- Evidence of trafficking (significant amounts of cash, scales, multiple cell phones, etc.)
- Whether the defendant is an adult or a minor
- Whether anyone was injured or killed
- Whether a minor was involved in the trafficking or drugs were distributed near a school
- Whether the drugs were taken across the Michigan state border or the U.S. border
Don’t Speak To Anyone Before Consulting A Lawyer
If you are questioned about your involvement in any drug trafficking or distribution scheme, do not attempt to explain your side of the story or offer any information without the presence of any skilled defense attorney. Law enforcement would like nothing better than to obtain a statement from you that they can later use against you in court.
