Sold to a special agent and he was drunk, can I fight it
This is a fact you can bring up that may be of benefit. How beneficial it will be is hard to say. Do you have any proof? Were other agents there too?

Can you fight this case? Yes, you certainly can and considering the seriousness of this charge, you should fight this case. Now, this particular argument can be raised; however, I wouldn’t put all your eggs into this basket. There are many defenses and legal arguments that may arise in your case. If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight for you in court. A thorough review of all the evidence must be completed to come up with the most affective strategy in your case. Remember, the police and prosecutor have already begun building their case against you. Now’s the time to make sure you start building your defense. Best of luck to you.
That may be an issue but there needs to be more. You should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney in your area for help with this case.
