A: Facing federal charges under 18 USC 924(c)(1), 18 USC 922(g), and 21 USC 841(a)(1) is a serious matter. These statutes pertain to firearm offenses and drug distribution, respectively. It is crucial to consult with an attorney who has experience in federal criminal defense as soon as possible. Understand the specifics of the charges, gather evidence, and strategize a defense plan. Ensure that you fully understand your rights, and do not speak with law enforcement without your attorney present.

Consider exploring plea options, but also be prepared to challenge evidence if your case goes to trial. Remember, every case is unique, and outcomes can vary based on the specifics of each situation. Your defense starts now, and preparation is key.
