Charlotte Drug Trafficking Attorney
What Is Drug Trafficking? Know the Charges You're Facing: (704) 313-1131
A drug trafficking charge has to do with the amount of drugs allegedly
involved. Having over a certain limit, the transportation of the drugs
is referred to as trafficking. The amount limit depends on the types of
drugs being transported.
An offense is considered to be drug trafficking if you are caught transporting:
- 28 grams or more of cocaine
- 4 grams of heroin
- 100 pills of ecstasy
It does not matter if you were caught with a narcotic, or schedule controlled
substance, or if the drugs were meant for personal use. If you have been
charged, you need to take action right away to protect your rights.

Penalties for Drug Trafficking
Trafficking drugs have severe penalties. These can include lengthy jail
sentences, asset forfeiture, and heavy fines. If you are facing these
penalties, protect your rights; do not talk to police. Police often try
to coerce the accused into giving a statement by making false promises.
Do not give a statement without the presence of a criminal defense lawyer.
What is said in a moment of confusion can later be used against you. Say
and do nothing until you hire an attorney. Call an experienced criminal
defense lawyer to learn your rights. The sooner you call, the better.
DeCurtins Law Office can begin working on your defense strategy immediately.
