Distribution, Manufacturing, Drug Trafficking of Methamphetamine
Because methamphetamine is considered to be a societal scourge, district attorneys often aggressively prosecute manufacturers and distributors of “meth” —especially if the accused can be charged with “cooking up” methamphetamine in a home lab or other facility, and/or to have a network of street salespeople to sell the drug.In New Jersey, prosecutors also have an additional legal weapon to use against meth dealers: they can lobby for more severe penalties against you if the methamphetamine was distributed near a school, public park, or housing project.
If you’ve been charged with the manufacturing or distribution of small amounts of methamphetamine, our expert criminal defense attorneys may be able to “plead you down” to simple possession. If you were caught with larger amounts of methamphetamine you need aggressive legal representation by an attorney who has trial law experience in complicated and serious drug crimes — including federal crimes.
New Jersey Federal Drug Crimes Criminal Defense Attorneys
A federal crime is one that violates the United States Code, federal legislation, or involves a crime that occurred on federal property. Federal criminal charges can include smuggling, drug possession, drug trafficking, manufacturing, and intent to distribute. Federal crimes carry stiffer penalties than state crimes and if you are convicted of running a drug ring you could be facing life in prison.
