Drug offenses are considered to be serious crimes by state and federal officials. In some cases, the federal government may prosecute a drug case instead of state or local authorities. It is essential for defendants to know all legal options available, especially when federal authorities are involved. Two Pennsylvania pharmacists are currently facing federal drug charges after a raid by several government agencies.
Much of the city was abuzz last week over a story involving a veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department who is now facing federal charges for allegedly using his status as an intelligence officer to alert his half-brother to ongoing surveillance by the FBI and DEA.
