What's Happening With Federal Drug Reform?

No one thinks federal drug law enforcement is fair. Prosecutors in federal cases have the upper hand, thanks to mandatory minimum sentencing. Most people charged with a federal drug crime opt to plead to a lesser offense, and milder punishment.

The problem with this is the court never gets a chance to see the evidence and evaluate the facts of the case. So people who may not have committed the crime end up pleading guilty and are filling our prisons. And the prosecution never has to prove its case.

Michael Spano is an effective defense lawyer who knows how to stand up to prosecutors. Give him a call today to arrange a no-cost consultation about your case.
