Drug Trafficking Top Rated Attorney with 25+ Years of Defense Experience

Athens Drug Trafficking Defense Attorney

Plan Your Defense Before It’s Too late

If law enforcement suspects that you are making, distributing, transporting, or selling controlled substances, you could be charged with drug trafficking. As the most serious of drug-related offenses, the penalties for a trafficking conviction would result in prison time and fines that range in the thousands of dollars. In fact, the sentence for this crime may be more than someone charged with a violent criminal offense would face.

Drug Trafficking Charges

The federal government is very much involved in drug-related offenses—so much so that they have developed mandatory minimum penalties for individuals convicted of this crime. This means that the judge cannot go below the minimum sentence listed in the court guidelines.

Minimum federal penalties for drug trafficking:

  • Schedule I & II drugs: First offenses call for no less than 5 years in prison
  • Schedule III, IV, & V drugs: Convictions can result in anywhere between 1 and 10 years of jail time.
  • Rohypnol: Anyone caught trafficking this drug could spend a minimum of 5 years in prison with a 30 years maximum sentence.

As mentioned above, the penalties for trafficking can include time in prison, probation and steep fines. There are certain factors that could increase your sentence, such as selling controlled substances near a school or other drug-free zone. The court will also consider the type of drugs that were being trafficked, with Schedule I controlled substances (such as LSD, MDMA, heroin, etc.) resulting in the steepest punishments.
