Penalties for Drug Distribution in Seattle
Drug distribution is a very serious charge and the penalties depend on the drug and the circumstance. In most all cases, however, it is a felony and that means prison time and large fines in a conviction . Manufacture with intent to sell methamphetamine, for example, in an amount of 2 kilograms or less will carry a potential sentencing of up to 10 years in prison and $25,000 in fines. Distribution and sales go hand i n hand in the eyes of the law. Stopping the sale of illegal drugs is a top priority for law enforcement and criminal prosecutors , so you need the most aggressive legal defense possible if you are facing charges.
You might be feeling like you are up against a very hopeless situation, but these charges could be defended successfully by a skillful attorney with the right experience. The case of drug distribution will often rest on evidence that was collected during the arrest. The evidence is usually the amount of drugs found as well other evidence such as drug paraphernalia. A criminal defense lawyer who knows the law will do his homework, finding all the facts of the arrest and looking for any areas in which your rights were violated. Then, if that was the case, the lawyer would move to have the evidence suppressed. There is no perfect case; as a former prosecutor, our lead attorney has an ability to quickly identify the weakness in the case against you and help you fight for your rights, your freedom and your future.
