Overview (Back to Top)

Drug Trafficking

Drug Trafficking 

Drug trafficking, or drug distribution, is the crime of transporting, selling, or illegally importing unlawful or controlled substances and other illegal drugs. The term also applies to any illegal transportation or selling of prescription drugs. 

Proving Drug Trafficking 

Drug trafficking is not too different from drug possession, in that it requires the defendant be knowingly in possession of an illegal substance. An individual cannot be charged with drug trafficking if they are unaware that they are in possession of an illegal drug or mistakenly believe that the drug is legal. In addition, drug trafficking requires that a prosecutor show that the defendant was involved in the import, transport, sale, or intent to sell or transport the drugs, making the crime a felony. 

 
The crime of possession and trafficking are very different and are looked at differently in a court of law. For one to prosecute the crime of trafficking, there must be circumstantial evidence that the defendant has or intended to utilize drugs for commercial use. Evidence that may be used against you includes large amounts of cash, GPS locations, and a record of sales and purchases. There may be multiple witnesses that provide testimony related to the selling of drugs and these accounts may be used as evidence. 

  

Drug Trafficking Consequences 

 The trafficking of drugs is a severe crime and is punished to a further extent than simple drug possession. Trafficking drugs may be considered a federal offense and can be prosecuted as a federal crime if drugs are moved between state lines. Depending on the scale of the operation, drug trafficking can have different penalties. The drug used for commercial purposes also has an impact on time served. For marijuana, one might receive 5 years while trafficking cocaine can be 15 years. Fines also increase with different drugs. If the selling occurs in certain areas such as a school, the crime and punishment can be more severe. 

  

If you are convicted of drug trafficking you may be subject to additional consequences. These can include a seizure of your assets including banks, businesses, cars, houses, and more. If you are not a United States citizen, you may be subject to immediate deportation.

I’m not one to leave reviews but I could not keep this to myself. After years of struggling and mismanaging my credit I decided to give this firm a try. What did I have to lose? I tried EVERYTHING to get my credit in line and failed every time. With a little time and patience I got the results I’ve been needing. My disputes were almost immediately addressed and help was finally here. The agent who handled my account was extremely helpful but more importantly communicative. Waiting for an update on your credit can sometimes become
frustrating but when you have an agent that communicates well the time just seems to fly by. Words are not enough explain my gratitude. I’m getting closer to achieving my goal of being a homeowner and it’s all thanks to you. Thank you John! Will recommend to family and friends who need share the same struggles. Life changer, thank you.
