Federal and State Level Charges

The trafficking of the following types of drugs can result in federal and state level charges:

It's very important to understand if you transported legal medical marijuana to another state you can still face serious drug trafficking charges. There have been several cases where people have been convicted on federal charges and have been sentenced up to 30 years.

Federal drug trafficking charges can include additional charges such as, possession with intent to sell, distribution, drug smuggling, drug importation, and drug manufacturing. It's very important to note that federal prison sentences don't have any type of parole, and the only way for early release is "good behavior." This makes it even more crucial for you to have a skilled OC drug crime lawyer on your side.

Client Reviews

“It was strongly recommended that I call federal defense attorney Michael L. Guisti. He had several investigators look at records and such, and my federal case was dismissed. Michael Guisti does what few attorneys can do, beat the federal government, and that is why if you’re in trouble with the government you need to call Michael Guisti right away!”

“I had everything to lose, my future, my education. Basically I did something that got me a misdemeanor, and the judge wanted to give a guilty plea. But Michael Guisti would not back down. Instead he fought for me, and now my record is clean.”
