Drug crime accusations can carry very strict consequences if a person is convicted in Florida. However, for a federal drug offense, the stakes are much higher. Two people in Sarasota are currently facing federal drug charges and might do well to keep in mind that a strong criminal defense could help them as they move forward with the drug crime charges.
Reports indicate that a 39-year-old man and a 42-year-old man have both been charged with possessing with the intent to distribute along with conspiracy to distribute at least 100 kilograms of marijuana. Supposedly, the men had been working together since August 2012. Authorities believe they had been distributing marijuana within three counties in the Sarasota area.
