Under the federal sentencing guidelines, a drug trafficking offense is
defined as "an offense under federal, state, or local law that prohibits
the manufacture, import, export, distribution, or dispensing of a controlled
substance (or a counterfeit substance) or the possession of a controlled
substance (or a counterfeit substance) with intent to manufacture, import,
export, distribute, or dispense." U.S.S.G. § 2L1.2(b)(1),
Drug trafficking can be one of the more serious of all drug-related charges
depending on the amount and type of drug being trafficked. Since it can
involve the crossing of state and national lines, as well as large amounts
of drugs, the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), DEA (Drug Enforcement
Administration) or other federal agencies may become involved in the investigation
and prosecution of these offenses — classifying them as
federal crimes. Penalties for these crimes are harsh, with heavy fines, forfeiture of
property, or imprisonment.
If you or someone you know is facing drug trafficking charges, the most
important step to take, as early in the criminal process as possible,
is to contact a
criminal defense lawyer in Broward County. By retaining legal counsel, you are protecting your
Constitutional rights, which can be severely affected by a conviction
of this crime.
