Drug Trafficking Offenses

Drug Trafficking Offenses

Drug trafficking offenses are highly complex cases. The defense requires specialized knowledge in the area of drug trade operations and skilled consideration when dealing with co-defendants or confidential informants.

§ 16-13-31:  Trafficking in cocaine, illegal drugs, marijuana, or methamphetamine

Each trafficking charge requires individual statutory analysis to determine which sentence applies, but most offenses carry either 5, 15, or 25 year mandatory sentences (without the possibility of probation or sometimes parole) depending on weight and purity of the drugs.
