Federal Drug Charge?

The penalty for a federal drug charge will depend on the quantity of drugs and other factors such as relevant conduct or whether a firearm was involved.

It is common for a federal drug charge to also involve a conspiracy charge. A conspiracy charge requires the government to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that an agreement between two or more persons existed to achieve a common objective, that the objective of the agreement was illegal, that there was knowing and voluntary participation, and that at least one person acted on that agreement.  It is not required that the agreement be formal or express and may be proven by the government by either direct or circumstantial evidence.

When a federal drug crime involves firearms, it is common for a person accused to also be charged with using or carrying a firearm during or in relation to, or possess a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.  Depending on the firearm involved, the mandatory minimum sentence will increase.
