Dallas Drug Trafficking Lawyers

Being caught in possession of drugs is one of the most harshly punished crimes in the United States. Drug trafficking charges are treated very seriously on a worldwide scale and the potential penalties for a conviction become increasingly severe as the quantity of drugs in question increases. In the United States, federal law dictates a minimum prison sentence that averages between one and three years for those facing even first time drug trafficking charges.

Drug Possession vs. Drug Trafficking

The laws governing the punishment for those convicted of drug trafficking are numerous. Some factors that could change a drug possession charge into a more serious drug trafficking charge include:

  • The amount of drugs found
  • The presence of a scale
  • The presence of plastic bags

Punishments for drug trafficking can also increase substantially if an arrest occurs near a school. A drug trafficking charge that occurs within a certain distance of a school carries a higher charge than one that doesn’t.
