Have you or someone you care about been charged with Drug Trafficking?
Drug Trafficking cases should be taken very seriously. In addition to imprisonment, a conviction for this offence can have significant consequences on one’s life and liberty. It is imperative to have an experienced defence lawyer to represent you if you are charged.
What is Drug Trafficking?
This charge includes, but is not limited to, selling, giving, transferring, administering, delivering, and offering to sell drugs. It also includes people who aid or abet those who traffic drugs as a party to the offence.
Depending on the nature of the drug and the amount, Drug Trafficking can result in serious consequences, including years in jail. The breadth of Drug Trafficking cases is wide-ranging: from momentary transactions between two individuals for a small amount of marijuana; to ongoing conspiracies over a long duration involving substances like cocaine or heroin. Depending on the complexity of the case, evidence can include extended police surveillance, wiretapping on phone lines, and undercover police agents.
Trafficking can also be committed by holding a substance out to be a narcotic. As long as the accused represented the substance as a narcotic, they can be found guilty of drug trafficking, even if the substance in question is not contraband.
Multiple offences of trafficking, depending on the nature of the drug, can result in extremely high jail sentences, including but not limited to, life in prison.
