Know What You are Facing
Much more than simple possession of illegal substances, being convicted of drug trafficking can cost you in terms of jail time and fines. For this reason, you need to do all you can to retain the right attorney to uphold your rights.
Punishments depend on the substance and quantity you are accused of trafficking:
- Cocaine: 10 years in prison for 28 to 200 grams; 15 years for 200 to 400 grams
- Morphine/opium: 5 years in prison for 4 to 14 grams; 10 years for 14 to 18 grams
- Marijuana: 5 years in prison for trafficking 10 to 2,000 pounds
- Amphetamine: 10 years in prison for 28 to 200 grams; 15 years for 200 to 400 grams
You could also incur federal authorities in your case if you are accused of trafficking drugs across state lines. Federal trafficking charges carry even harsher penalties, so retain our Atlanta drug crime lawyer to advise you as soon as you can.
