Distribution and Sale of Narcotics (PWID)

Narcotic distribution, drug distribution, cases involve many different scenarios. The most common tactic used by law enforcement agencies is the employment of a confidential informant to attempt to purchase narcotics. Another commonly used method is the use of an undercover officer who poses as a buyer. In all cases, the Government is alleging that the accused transferred drugs to another individual. Although the alleged transaction for drugs usually involves the exchange of money, it does not have to be an actual sale.

Attorney Chad Dorsk has the experience to take these cases to trial. There are many strong defenses that can be raised to defend you if you have been arrested for distribution. We can discredit confidential informants and expose their criminal records and bias. Most confidential informants are untrustworthy and jurors need to be informed of this fact. 

Many confidential informants have been promised leniency for crimes they have been arrested for in exchange for their testimony against the accused. Furthermore, many confidential informants are still addicts that have been paid by law enforcement officers for providing information/evidence. We can expose these agreements during a trial and discredit the informant’s biased testimony.

Moreover, if the officers failed to recover any “buy money” (money supplied by officers to the confidential informant to attempt to purchase narcotics), then their case is inherently weaker. If the officers failed to keep constant surveillance of the confidential informant, then the case against you is inherently weaker.


Convictions for possessing or selling narcotics or a controlled substance can entail serious penalties. But, if you have been arrested for or charged with a drug crime, you have rights and deserve to be effectively represented. Depending on the specifics of your case, your legal options vary. Mr. Dorsk, an experienced defense attorney, understands these variations and their significance in a court of law. He has the legal experience necessary to counsel his clients on what to expect in regards to their drug related charges, to work with the prosecution to attain favorable results for his clients, and to fight for his clients’ rights in court.

When small quantities of drugs are involved, first time offenders may qualify for a deferred finding provision, which entails probation with the dismissal of the charges following a one year period, should the defendant honor specific conditions set forth in court. Mr. Dorsk will counsel you on this provision and, should it be desirable, work to apply it to your case.
