Federal Drug Crime Defense Strategy

Federal drug crimes are some of the most common federal charges in Kansas. With I-70 running east to west and I-35 north to south drug trafficking is one of the more common federal crimes in Kansas. If you passed state lines while carrying drugs, you may also have triggered a federal charge. Transportation, sale, distribution, or manufacture of large quantities of drugs are common federal drug charges.

As with any other drug charge, there are a number of defenses and effective defense strategies that may be utilized in a federal drug case, including:

  • Use of pretrial motions to seek the suppression of evidence obtained as a result of an illegal search and seizure.
  • Use of pretrial motions to seek the suppression of evidence obtained as a result of a search performed pursuant to a search warrant that was not supported by probable cause.
  • Fighting charges at trial if the prosecution does not have sufficient evidence to prove all necessary elements of a drug crime beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • Negotiation of a favorable plea agreement that minimizes a defendant’s exposure to potentially harsh penalties normally associated with the conviction of a federal drug charge.
