Distribution of a Controlled Substance

Distribution of a controlled substance is charged when there is evidence that a person actually delivered, sold or in any way engaged in some sort of transaction where a controlled substance was left for or passed along to another. There does not have to be a purchase or a transaction of value although many times this is what the police claim they saw, commonly referred to in police reports as a “hand to hand” transaction. Where drugs are exchanged for currency with the exchange observed by police giving them probable cause to stop a person and investigate further.

Penalties for distribution depend on whether the case remains in district court where the maximum penalty for a charge is 2½ years or whether the case is indicted and handled in superior court where penalties can range up to 10 years for distribution. Whether someone has a prior record and is charged as a subsequent offender will trigger a mandatory minimum sentence as well. The registry of motor vehicles will suspend a person’s driver’s license convicted of distribution between 3 to 5 years, a hardship license is usually available after serving half of the suspension.

Probably one of the best lawyers in the area. He’s considering all the nuances of a case and It’s clearly seen he’s fighting for the best possible result. Some people thing a success is a matter of luck, but i know it’s a result of patience and hard work that Mr Fernandez does provide by his job.

If you find yourself needing a lawyer, Frank is your guy. Right from the very first phone call (which he answered, not a call center) he made me feel comfortable and gave me great advice. He was very professional, did a great job explaining everything to me, and really listened to what I had to say (which helped me calm down in a stressful situation). Very happy I chose to work with Frank, he made a tough situation the easiest it could be. Also - added bonus for some - he's fluent in Spanish! Thanks again Frank.

I needed a criminal lawyer here in Boston, and needed one quickly. After doing something stupid that would have costed me my scholarship, I called The Fernandez Firm and got legal advice from Mr. Fernandez. I was so worried at first but after talking to Mr. Fernandez I felt so much better and knew it could be dealt with properly. Thanks for taking the time to figure out my case exactly.

He is such a friendly and personable guy, he really put me at ease with everything that was going on. I will certainly be returning to Frank for any legal needs I have. And even more so recommend him to anyone in Boston who needs a lawyer. Thanks again Frank Fernandez, I owe you big time.
