Federal charges for 13 accused of East coast drug trafficking

Sometimes ourselves or the loved ones in our life make shaky decisions, based out of necessity. The use or sale of illicit drugs is a decision that can have serious consequences for the person making that decision and for the people around them and in their life. A federal investigation has been ongoing and has accused and charged 13 people in connection with drug distribution and possession crimes up and down the East coast. The alleged operation spanned state lines, including Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.

Local and federal law enforcement were involved in the investigation and eventual arrests. Drug crimes have been a major focus for law enforcement since the late 80s when it became clear their danger to those who consume and abuse illegal drugs. Heroin and meth, two of the more dangerous drugs, were said to have been run in this alleged drug ring. Charges against the defendants include narcotics conspiracy and various firearm offenses.

If convicted, these charges carry prison time ranging from five years to life. It appears that authorities may have conducted an undercover investigation in hopes of building their case. Two notable allegations in the charges include the sale of a 9mm handgun and around 300 grams of heroin to a confidential informant in Port Chester. The authorities allege that the accused moved and organized a web of illegal drug sales all around the northeast.

Realizing that you or a loved one has been charged with a federally-mandated crime can be terrifying. Not knowing what to do next or who to trust can cause families to schism. However, it's during these times that loved ones need to stick together. Building a criminal defense against such serious drug allegations is possible.
