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 our experienced criminal defense lawyers to learn your rights. The sooner you call, the better. DeCurtins Law Office can begin working on your defense strategy immediately.
