The distribution of drugs can be met with heavy penalties, and these penalties can increase in their severity depending upon the type of drug found. Marijuana distribution, for example, is usually penalized less harshly than distribution cases involving cocaine. Distribution of Heroin can carry extremely stiff penalties, as heroin is considered one of the more dangerous drugs in circulation. In many cases, one charged with distribution will be punished with large fines, probation, community service, and time spent in jail or prison.
One of the primary steps in defending against drug distribution charges is exposing any rights violations that were committed against the accused. Distribution investigations frequently employ undercover agents or other clandestine methods, and one who is charged may be the victim of entrapment. An attorney can examine one’s charges to determine if this is the case, and use that information in court to the possible benefit of the accused.
