Drug distribution is charged when the defendant is accused of knowingly and illegally distributing a controlled substance or illegal narcotic.

Many controlled substances, even in very small amounts, will result in a felony charge. When it is believed that the accused individual has been distributing these drugs, the penalties can include years spent in state prison with the state's most serious criminal offenders.
It is crucial that you act quickly and contact the firm if you have been arrested and charged with any drug distribution offense, as immediate involvement in the case could assist in avoiding the repercussions you will face if convicted.
