The Orlando video production team at authenticWEB is proud to present the latest in a series of video blog posts created for New York City federal criminal defense attorney Paul D. Petrus, Jr.

In this video, Mr. Petrus describes the repercussions of being prosecuted as a kingpin for drug charges in New York City. In United States federal court, an alleged drug kingpin can receive a sentence of up to life in prison. In New York state court, sentencing is usually less severe, but an alleged kingpin can still be sentenced to prison for ten years or more. In New York state court, the earning threshold to be prosecuted as a drug kingpin is only $75,000 per year. An alleged kingpin must earn a much larger amount per year to be considered for federal prosecution.

At both the state and federal level, the consequences of being prosecuted as a drug kingpin are extremely serious. However, seeking representation from a knowledgable NYC drug crimes attorney can help to minimize these consequences.
