As a federal lawyer, Attorney Lynch has represented hundreds of persons charged with federal drug crimes. These crimes involve a very strict set of rules completely different from state cases. Generally, federal drug cases carry very punitive sentences, including mandatory minimum sentences depending on quantity or prior criminal history. That means judges are limited in the sentences they can impose, and by statute, could be mandated to impose a minimum sentence by statute. Generally, that means a 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or even life sentence could be the minimum depending on your case factors.
