Land, bank accounts, houses, automobiles, and other assets are almost always seized by the government in federal drug cases. To get them back, you have the burden of proving that these assets were not acquired as the result of the alleged drug-related activities. This can be done by going to trial and obtaining an acquittal or through exhaustive financial analysis.
Many drug arrests in the Georgia lead to prosecution in United States District Court. You could be facing federal drug charges because of the seriousness of the offense, where it occurred, your prior criminal record or other factors. Federal sentencing guidelines may make substantial prison time a certainty if you are convicted. You need a lawyer with in-depth knowledge of the specific rules and procedures unique to federal court.
