Handling State and Federal Drug Charges
Drug conspiracy charges are sometimes used by law enforcement to arrest as many people as possible who may have roles in a drug crime or suspected criminal organization. Threatening minor players or alleged associates with serious federal drug charges may lead to the collection of information or evidence regarding highly valuable suspects.
If you have been overcharged with drug conspiracy, you need an experienced attorney to protect your rights. Attorney Jed Silverman has been fighting state and federal prosecutors in drug cases for more than 10 years. He understands the government's tactics in the prosecution of drug cases and knows how to counteract them.

A Conviction for Drug Conspiracy Is Serious
Conspiring to commit a state or federal drug crime is against the law. You can be charged with drug conspiracy regardless of whether the crime itself is ever committed. Even if your role was limited to conspiracy, you may be charged with the actual crime as well as any criminal acts that arise from it. The charges for the drug crime may be in addition to the charges for drug conspiracy.
If you are convicted of drug conspiracy, you may face the same penalties as the parties that committed the crime, in addition to the penalties for the drug conspiracy charge. Depending on the details of your case, the penalties may include a mandatory prison sentence, significant fines and probation.
To convict a person of drug conspiracy, the prosecution must allege a specific drug offense. Generally, proving conspiracy is far more difficult than charging someone with it. We will examine the government's case for weaknesses and work to exploit them to your advantage.
