ORANGE COUNTY DRUG TRAFFICKING ATTORNEY

Experienced Representation for Drug Crimes

Drug trafficking is one of the most serious drug crimes in California. Punishments for convictions are far more severe than for simple drug possession.

FEDERAL DRUG TRAFFICKING

More serious penalties will be enforced when the federal government gets involved in a trafficking case. This normally happens when a person is suspected of trafficking in unusually large amounts of methamphetamine or distributing drugs across state, or national borders. A federal trafficking conviction can result in at least 10 years to life in jail and a $10 million fine for a first offense.

PUNISHMENTS FOR DRUG TRAFFICKING

Drug trafficking covers many offenses including the act of transporting, selling, furnishing, administering, selling, or distributing illegal substances. Such a crime is a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and upwards of $10,000 in fines.

Any of the following circumstances can enhance the penalties:

  • If the offender has a prior criminal record
  • If there are minors involved
  • Transporting controlled substances in restricted areas such as a school
  • The amount and types of drugs involved

To be convicted of drug trafficking, the prosecution must prove that the drugs were in a person's possession with the intent to sell or distribute them rather than for personal consumption. In addition to jail time, an offender can face heavy fines, asset forfeiture and registration as a narcotics offender. Repeat offenders will receive even longer prison sentences for additional drug convictions.
