Minneapolis Drug Dealing Charges


Offering skilled defense against government charges

Vast government resources and manpower are put to the task of building strong cases against drug dealers, with the goal of putting offenders in prison for a long time.  A Minneapolis drug trafficking charge can put you in serious jeopardy.

If you are facing such charges, The Law Office of Jeff T. Ohara can help minimize your risk and maintain your freedom.

Federal vs. state drug trafficking charges

Our firm can take steps to protect you from federal and state drug charges. We have the skill and experience to represent you in any courtroom.

Federal drug trafficking laws target the transportation of drugs over state lines or national borders. Distributing drugs through the U.S. Mail, in federal waters, and in federal airspace are also considered federal drug trafficking violations.

State drug distribution charges target the transport of large amounts of drugs within a state’s borders.

Drug manufacturing

We have a history of success in defending all kinds of drug manufacturing cases:

  • Operating a meth lab
  • Manufacturing illegal prescription drugs
  • Conspiring to manufacture or distribute drugs
  • Growing marijuana
  • Operating or participating in a drug cartel
  • Financing illegal drug manufacturing

We can put all of our resources into defending against a Minneapolis drug manufacturing charge and help you toward the best outcome possible.

If federal prosecutors believe you entered into an agreement to manufacture drugs, complex conspiracy charges may apply.  These can result in additional fines and prison time.

Drug trafficking

Drug trafficking refers to the sale and distribution of illegal drugs.  A drug trafficking conviction may lead to denial of federal benefits and forfeiture of personal property and real estate.

A Minneapolis drug trafficking charge may be brought for the manufacture, import, export, distribution, or dispensing of a controlled substance (or a counterfeit substance).

Drug distribution

Drug distribution is the process of systematically selling narcotics to a network of others. Those who import large quantities of narcotics from another country face the most severe penalties, which may include:

  • Long prison sentence
  • Large fines
  • Forfeiture of assets
  • Search and seizure of property
  • Deportation of non-U.S. citizens

A Minneapolis drug distribution charge is a very serious matter requiring timely response and aggressive defense.  Our firm has the knowledge and resources to represent you in the best way possible.
