Federal Crimes Attorney in Boston

As a former federal prosecutor and a famous criminal defense lawyer, Boston Federal Crimes Attorney Brad Bailey has seen countless cases in the past.

If you have been accused of being a drug smuggler, you should know that the prosecution could harshly penalize you, and that Brad Bailey Law can help defend you.

Drug Smuggling Penalties Often Include Lengthy Jail Time

If you have been arrested for drug smuggling, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has its sight set on you. Since most drug smuggling cases, by definition, involve trafficking an illegal drug from one country to another, the FBI will be interested in your punishment and the information you may possess. The federal government may use excessive means to try to get you to not only confess to the crime but also drag other people down with you.

If you do not cooperate, they may try to scare you by listing off potential conviction penalties, such as:

  • 10 years to life in prison
  • 5 to 10 year minimum sentencing
  • $10,000 to $5 million in fines
  • 3 year probation upon release

Do not give in to their intimidation tactics and do not speak to members of the FBI without your attorney present. Even though they may represent one of the most formidable branches of the government, FBI officers cannot override your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent until you are provided with your trusted legal counsel.

Intentionally Mislabeled Drug Crimes

A drug smuggling conviction can reward the government with thousands in fines, much higher than a typical drug crime conviction can bring in, even when compared to drug trafficking charges. For this reason, the language in drug smuggling crime definitions has been left intentionally vague. Nearly anyone caught with an illegal drug could be charged with drug smuggling, if the federal prosecutors put their minds to it. This rampant mislabeling of minor drug crimes to secure more money and lock people away for five years or more must come to an end. By standing up for your rights, you can help do your part in keeping the criminal justice system honest.
