Drug Trafficking Charges
Drug trafficking or drug distribution is a very serious charge under both federal and state laws. It includes the selling, transporting and importing of illegal drugs or prescription drugs sold illegally and is typically prosecuted as a federal crime if the defendant has transported drugs across state lines.
Drug trafficking is a much more serious charge than drug possession, with sentences ranging anywhere from 3 – 5 years to life in prison. The severity of the sentence depends on the geographic area of distribution, the type of and amount of drugs distributed, and whether or not children were involved.

This is a very serious charge demanding your immediate attention. You need a skilled criminal defense attorney experienced in handling important federal cases.to prepare a strong defense and protect your interests.
