When faced with drug distribution charges, it’s imperative that you speak with a skilled criminal defender as soon as possible. Drug distribution is a serious crime that prosecutors and law enforcement officials will simply not overlook or ignore. In fact, if you’re suspected of drug distribution, you can bet the police and other investigative agencies will begin looking into your case before you’re even placed under arrest.
What Is Drug Distribution?
Drug distribution is the crime of selling, transporting, or delivering any type of illegal drug, narcotic, or controlled substance. This includes distributing illegal drugs, such as cocaine, heroin, Ecstasy, marijuana, methamphetamines, LSD, etc., as well as prescription medication, such as Vicodin, Xanax, OxyContin, Codeine, etc.
Drug distribution is a felony crime, regardless of what type of drugs you are accused of distributing. The penalties for distribution include imprisonment, large fines, mandatory drug counseling, probation, community service, and a mark on your criminal record. Should you distribute drugs to a minor or anywhere near a school, you will likely face enhanced penalties.
