Drug Trafficking Offenses
Drug trafficking offenses can carry serious consequences in North Carolina without experienced legal representation. Drug trafficking is the possession, manufacturing, distribution, or sale of illegal/controlled substances. Controlled substances include marijuana, crack, meth, cocaine, heroin, pills, LSD, ecstasy and any other controlled substances banned by the Federal Government.
While drug trafficking offenses are often thought of as the transportation or selling of illegal drugs, under federal statutes, even just possession of these controlled substances could potentially be considered trafficking if a criminal “intent to manufacture or distribute” is found.
Federal courts often take up drug trafficking offenses because drugs normally pass between state lines. If convicted for drug trafficking, federal sentencing guidelines can impose minimum or maximum penalties which range from fines to prison time. When dealing with federal court and federal charges such as a drug trafficking offense, the matter is always more serious and professional legal counsel is critical to attain the best possible outcome for your case.
