Drug Trafficking Charges
The assistance a lawyer can offer an individual charged with felony drug trafficking will vary depending upon several factors. There are no minor drug trafficking charges, and if convicted, a lengthy prison sentence is likely. The penalties imposed will be determined by a number of considerations:
- The type of drug being distributed
- The amount of drug being distributed
- If the individual charged with drug trafficking has a prior criminal record
- If the individual is facing state or federal drug trafficking charges
