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.
