The classification of a drug offense as a federal crime depends on the type of drug, the amount of drugs found, and whether the drugs were meant for sale or distribution. Drug trafficking, manufacture and sale are typically prosecuted as federal crimes. Possession of certain prescription drugs without a valid prescription may also be prosecuted as a federal crime. Contact a federal crimes attorney at Mercer & Keirnan Houston Criminal Defense Attorneys immediately to avoid incriminating yourself.


Federal agents have authority to seize your assets if they believe it was either used to commit a federal crime or received as a benefit from the commission of a federal crime. Many times, all it takes to seize your money is a positive alert by a drug dog, even though money exchanges hands countless times and often comes into contact with drugs well before the current owner. Contact a criminal defense attorney at Mercer & Keirnan to find out how to get your money back.
