Defending Against Drug Transportation Charges And Mandatory Sentences
The charge of trafficking may mean that the controlled substance is being moved by car, truck or some other mode of transportation. If you have been charged with drug trafficking, you could be facing a state prison sentence of more than 20 years if convicted. The mandatory sentence varies with the drug and the amount charged. Because of the severity of the penalties, we always seek dismissals or acquittals.
