Drug laws in New York are serious. Simple possession of drugs comes with various penalties from a fine for a simple marijuana possession charge up to a felony for other drugs. If you are charged with sales of a controlled substance, you face serious consequences. If you are charged with drug trafficking, you are looking at a dire situation. According to New York State law, drug trafficking is the sale, transportation, distribution, and production of a large amount of drugs. Some of the most trafficked drugs in the United States include marijuana, heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, and prescription drugs. In tandem with New York State law enforcement, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) aggressively seeks out drug traffickers that impact our communities. The State judicial system is hostile towards those who commit this crime. If you have been charged with drug trafficking, you need to consider your legal situation. You need to contact an attorney immediately in order to defend your case.
According to the New York Penal Code 220.77, operating as a drug trafficker is defined as one of the following:
If you are convicted of drug trafficking, you are facing a class A-1 felony. It is punishable by 15-25 years in prison and a fine up to and not exceeding $100,000. Being convicted of this crime could ruin your life. It is crucial that you contact an attorney that will explore all defenses to fight these charges.
