We have handled all types of federal drug crimes including:

Federal Methamphetamine Charges

federal conspiracy defense methamphetamineMethamphetamine, which includes Crystal Meth and other forms of the drug, has become very popular and, as a result, is treated very harshly by federal authorities.

And it’s not just the drug that is treated harshly; federal authorities also take possession of meth precursors (substances used to make meth) very seriously as well. In fact, if you are caught purchasing or otherwise obtaining large quantities of the substances used to make meth, you could be charged with manufacturing or attempted manufacture of meth.

Those caught with meth or meth precursors face sentences like these:

  • If you are arrested with at least five grams of pure meth or 50 grams of a meth mixture, you could receive a five-year mandatory minimum sentence and up to 40 years imprisonment.
  • If you are captured with at least 50 grams of pure meth or 500 grams or more of a meth mix, you will face a minimum sentence of 10 years and up to life imprisonment.

Remember, these sentences are just the minimum sentences, depending on your case and criminal history you could be facing much longer behind bars. Schedule a free consultation to learn more about how we can help you get the best possible outcome for your meth-related case.
