Drug Trafficking involves the delivery of a controlled substance without having the legal license or ability to do so, as in the case of a doctor or druggist. Controlled substances include but are not limited to Marijuana, Cocaine, Methamphetamine, LSD and Heroin.
Drug Trafficking is also called Distribution. In some states, drug trafficking is considered a more serious offense that is charged when higher quantities of drugs or more severely restricted drugs are involved.
Federal and state drug trafficking and distribution laws vary based on the jurisdiction and circumstances. Punishments typically vary according to drug type, amount, and geographic area of distribution, as well as whether minors were targeted or were sold the drugs.
Since the advent of the "war on drugs" in the 1980's, the government at all levels has aggressively pursued drug convictions. Drug crimes are considered "gateway crimes" that can eventually lead to other types of crimes including white collar, violent and sexual crimes. Big drug busts mean big publicity for prosecutors and politicians.
Citizens who may be in involved in the possession or distribution of drugs are favorite targets of prosecutors because drug convictions tend to be easier to get than other types of crimes. The prevalence of drug use leads many people to assume drug charges are minor, "victimless" crimes.
On the contrary, drug crimes have among the most aggressive sentencing guidelines in the criminal justice system. Even minor possession charges can result in a criminal record, loss of your drivers' license and difficulty in keeping or getting jobs. Convictions on possession of controlled substances or on selling or trafficking drugs can result in long prison times with mandatory sentencing guidelines. This is why drug charges must be fought with extremely skilled and vigorous defense.
The most common approach to drug crimes defense is to get the charges dismissed or substantially reduced without a trial. Pre-trial defense strategies usually center around the suppression or handling of evidence. This requires more than just knowledge of the law. It requires specific experience in drug related defense strategies backed by forensic experts who can conduct the research necessary for a defense.
Drug charges are aggressively prosecuted and carry severe penalties. Just a few grams of some substances can result in years in prison.
Unlike many other types of crimes, drug charges can result in federal prosecution. The federal government has an entire agency dedicated solely to pursuing drug convictions. It is critical that you determine whether you are facing federal charges or under federal investigation. Even a charge made by your state can later be handed to the federal government. If so, you need a federal attorney experienced in the Federal Court System.
Our defense strategies and our cadre of drug trial attorneys at both the state and federal level have saved our clients years of prison time.
The obvious goal of a criminal defense firm is to get charges against you dismissed or, barring that, get a not guilty verdict. In the case of drug crimes, there can be many individual charges, each of which carries its own sentence.
In the event that it is not possible to disprove a specific charge against you, we can be extremely helpful at sentence reduction. The complexity of drug cases creates many opportunities for plea bargains, and the lattitude that state court judges can have makes it possible to greatly reduce sentences and penalties.
At LibertyBell Law Group, we have a team of trial attorneys with experience defending against drug criminal charges. Our experience spans state courtrooms across the country and the federal court system. Our attorneys have successfully defended clients in cases involving millions of dollars and multiple years of defense work.
