Federal Drug Crime Appeals
The Department of Justice has made it clear that its official policy is now for federal prosecutors to pursue the maximum charges and available sentences in all drug crime cases, reversing course from the previous administration. Because federal drug crime convictions can result in prison sentences that often span decades and involve millions of dollars in fines, it is more important than ever for defendants to do everything to protect their freedom and their reputation, even where a trial court has handed down a conviction. If you have been convicted in a federal drug crime, the criminal defense team at The Henry Law Firm PLLC in New York is here to analyze your case and aggressively pursue an appeal of your drug crime conviction and/or sentence.
Work With an Experienced Fighter On Your Appeal
When appealing your federal drug crime conviction, we will scour the trial record as well as the facts leading up to your arrest to determine your best strategies for a successful appeal of your conviction or sentence, including:
- Illegal interrogation efforts and lineups
- Unconstitutional evidence collection
- Other violations of your state and federal constitutional rights
- Improper admission of evidence against you
- Failure to allow exculpatory evidence showing your innocence
- Improper jury selection techniques
- Jury misconduct
- Other incorrect rulings by the judge overseeing your trial, including sentencing
- Failure of your attorney at trial to adequately represent you
Our criminal defense has significant experience in defending and appealing drug crime cases, including going all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse a conviction, and we have the skills, resources, and knowledges to find errors in your investigation and prosecution that your trial attorney may have missed.
