Life in prison a possibility for man charged with drug crime

A man from Florida is facing life in prison after pleading guilty to drug distribution charges related to 121 pounds of heroin and cocaine earlier this year. Another person was also charged in the case on conspiracy charges. A court date has yet to be announced for the man accused of drug distribution charges. While his maximum is life in prison, the mandatory minimum of his crimes is 10 years in jail.

There is a lot to parse through in this story. First and foremost, while the heroin epidemic in this country is a very serious matter, the punishment and treatment of people accused of possessing and distributing heroin also needs to be handled seriously and appropriately. Throwing massive penalties and jail time at offenders makes it more difficult for them to reincorporate into society after they pay their debt to society.

 

Another aspect here is the conspiracy charge for the other person involved in the case. These conspiracy charges are typical in drug cases. The authorities and prosecution try to tag anyone they can with whatever charges they can make stick to individuals. These conspiracy charges are tricky, and they can be quite punishing.

Last but not least, consider the role of a criminal defense attorney in relation to these situations. Your attorney can help you come to the best decisions possible for your case. Your attorney can support you and argue your case. And given the incredible stakes of a drug case, it is imperative that you have an experienced attorney by your side.
