Damico & Stockstill, Attorneys at Law

80 Years Of Combined Trial Experience

Stand Up To Drug Distribution Or Trafficking Charges

You don’t need to be caught in the act of handing someone a bag of marijuana or cocaine to be charged with drug trafficking. In fact, the evidence most commonly used to charge and convict someone of trafficking is the amount of drugs found in a defendant’s possession.

A charge of trafficking is very different from a charge of mere possession. The prosecution is much more determined, and the penalties are much more severe, including many years of imprisonment.

Other evidence prosecutors use to convince a jury that you intended to sell rather than use the drugs found include:

  • Multiple bags or containers
  • Scales that could be used to weigh a substance
  • Ingredients for cutting or mixing drugs

Drug Charges And Defenses

Consequences are worse if a firearm is found, or you have a prior conviction. The best strategy may be to question evidence of trafficking and reduce the charge to possession. Other defenses include the exclusion of evidence gathered in violation of your constitutional rights against unreasonable search and seizure.
