Denton Federal Drug Crimes Attorneys
Fighting Accusations in Denton County
Federal drug crimes charges require aggressive defense, as the government does not take these matters lightly. Officials from agencies such as the FBI or DEA will thoroughly investigate the case, and a U.S. Attorney will fight hard to obtain a conviction. Often, the punishments for a federal drug crime are more severe than those for offenses falling under state jurisdiction. They can include years of incarceration, as well as thousands to millions of dollars in fines.

Types of Federal Drug Crimes
Drug crimes include conduct involving controlled substances. These can be illegal drugs, such as heroin, or prescription medications, such as Xanax.
Unlawful acts pertaining to drugs include, but are not limited to:
- Possessing with the intent to manufacture, distribute, or possess
- Using fraud to procure
In federal drug crimes cases, the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the alleged offense. At Marsala Law Group, we will carefully investigate your circumstances to cast doubt on the prosecution’s evidence.
The Penalties for Federal Drug Crimes
The punishments for federal drug crimes are varied, and they depend on several factors, such as the type and amount of controlled substance and the specifics of the offense.
For example, the penalties for making or distributing 1 kilogram or more of a substance containing a detectable amount of heroin include a prison sentence of 10 years to life, as well as a fine of up to $10,000,000. A mixture of 100 grams or more containing a detectable amount of heroin is punishable by between 5 and 40 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $5,000,000.
In contrast, simple possession of a controlled substance can result in up to 1 year of imprisonment and/or a fine of up to $1,000.
