Federal Criminal Appeals in Miami: Drug Trafficking
The consequences of a federal drug trafficking conviction are serious. You need to consult with a Federal Criminal Appeals attorney before you are sentenced. Drug trafficking convictions in Miami and all over the United States often carry some of the most severe penalties, and it is not unheard for defendants to receive a lifetime sentence and millions of dollars in fines. Errors are made every day during federal trials and defendants are too often denied their constitutional rights. That’s where we come in; our Federal Criminal Appeals attorneys know how to find appealable issues and how to raise them effectively in the Eleventh Circuit.
The U.S. District Courts in Miami and the Southern District of Florida consider several factors in determining the sentence for a drug trafficking conviction. For instance, the court may consider the type of drug involved, the quantity of narcotic, and the criminal history of the defendant. Many of the drug trafficking crimes will carry lengthy sentences with numerous additional factors that increase your offense level. Your sentence can increase significantly depending on how these offense level factors are assessed. Knowing the United States Sentencing Guidelines and how to navigate for the best results is our business.
Federal Criminal Appeals in Miami: Firearm Convictions
Already harsh penalties from a federal criminal conviction can become even more serious with the involvement of a firearm. Firearm convictions will automatically tack additional penalties on to a federal sentence, and it is imperative that you contact a lawyer who can persuasively craft and present appealable issues whether they take the form of constitutional issues, procedural issues and evidentiary issues.
The Sentencing Guidelines Manuel provides a set of rules based on offense level of a crime and criminal history, which guide the judge in determining the sentence that will be imposed. Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 924 (c), there is a mandatory minimum penalty for those convicted of carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence or drug trafficking crime, or possessing a firearm of 5 years. An individual, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 924, convicted of such crimes must “(i) be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not less than 5 years; (ii) if the firearm is brandished, be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not less than 7 years; and (iii) if the firearm is discharged, be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not less than 10 years.”
