Drug Offense Cases

  • Prescription drug abuse
  • Drug possession
  • Possession with intent to traffic
  • Intent to sell/drug trafficking
  • Conspiracy to traffic

Attorney William M. Butler provides aggressive defense for clients facing state or federal drug charges involving fentanyl, heroin, cocaine or crack.

Conspiracy to Traffic

If you are being charged in federal court, there is an added danger. Conspiracy is a magic word for federal prosecutors. If the small amount of drugs you possessed can be traced back to the original kilo, federal prosecutors may do two things. First, they might charge you with conspiracy. Second, they may increase the quantity of drugs in your charge, i.e., charge you for possessing the whole kilo. Both these factors can considerably increase your sentence if you are convicted.

Out-of-State Defendants

Frequently, drug trafficking cases involve out-of-state defendants who are charged under Kentucky’s laws. These individuals often face prejudices that Kentucky residents do not face. For example, bail bonds may be set higher, making it harder for the defendant to get out of jail. With over 35 years of experience representing clients in Kentucky courts, William M. Butler has developed a rapport within the court system. He is familiar with the judges, prosecutors, and other court personnel. He understands their methods, what to expect and what to put before the judge in order to obtain a successful result.
