Crossing State Lines ∙ Drug Trafficking
Although many people don’t consider the consequences at the time, carrying controlled substances across state lines can change the nature of the crime and increase the consequences dramatically. The federal government is far more likely to prosecute drug distribution charges if the substance has crossed state lines, for example, and felony drug trafficking often involves interstate distribution.
Des Moines interstate drug crime attorneys Sean P. Spellman and Mary Spellman represent clients throughout Iowa who are facing drug charges involving interstate travel. Their commitment to handling only criminal defense matters help them stay prepared to defend their clients against a wide range of interstate drug charges.
State and Federal Criminal Defense
Although it is rare that a drug charge will be prosecuted in both state and federal courts, it is possible. The federal government can prosecute most drug cases in federal court, and it will prosecute many drug charges that involve movement of a controlled substance over state lines or unusually large quantities of a controlled substance.
The attorneys at Spellman Law take cases frequently involving marijuana charges, they have experience defending clients in all types of controlled substance cases involving interstate charges such as:
- Misdemeanor drug charges
- Felony drug charges
- State drug charges
- Federal charges
- Possession with intent to deliver
- Drug trafficking
