Nassau County criminal defense attorneys with extensive steroid case experience
Everyone has an opinion about steroids, but hardly anyone has the facts. Over the past few decades, anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs have become big news, and the number of anabolic steroid investigations and prosecutions across the county has risen similarly. Large-scale federal operations have affected swaths of the steroid trafficking industry, but many of the private citizens arrested for steroid possession and other such abuses are normal, everyday people like you.
Nassau County attorney Rick Collins and the other attorneys at the law firm Collins Gann McCloskey & Barry PLLC are among the most knowledgeable legal authorities on anabolic steroids and muscle-building dietary supplements. The firm has built an international reputation for helping individuals facing such charges with straightforward advice and extensive knowledge of anabolic steroid laws. The lawyers concentrate their efforts on cases involving the bodybuilding and fitness communities, representing clients in both criminal and civil matters from coast to coast.
Am I in danger of being arrested for a steroid crime?
Many arrests for steroid crimes occur when someone attempts to sell a steroid or other controlled substance to a person who turns out to be cooperating with the police. However, smaller arrests for the simple act of possessing anabolic steroids occur from time to time, sometimes based on a search of your car after a traffic stop or in attempting to import steroids at a land border or international airport.
The fastest-growing way to get into to legal trouble for steroids is to order them over the Internet. U.S. Customs or postal authorities can intercept any steroid delivered by mail. Many people have been arrested as a result of such activities, and many more have had their shipments seized.
The nature of your punishment depends on countless variables, including the amounts of drugs involved and the jurisdiction of your case. But under the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 1990, which was expanded in 2004 and has proposed amendments pending, steroids are considered similar to barbiturates, LSD precursors and other such drugs, meaning that simple unlawful possession is a federal offense.
