Oklahoma City Drug Trafficking Defense Attorney
Despite a decades-long war on illegal drugs, the U.S. remains the top drug-importing country in the world. Drug trafficking is the term used to describe importing, exporting, distribution, cultivation and sale of illegal substances.
Trafficking is not about traffic. It’s about the quantity of drugs found on you or in your control. Many trafficking charges do involve traffic, though — the moving of illegal substances from place to place. Interstates 35 and 40 are major arteries for drug trade pass-through’s. Lots of people get pulled over for minor reasons — failing to signal, missing a light — and then they are searched, or dogs sniff around the vehicle, and police find a reason for arrest.
Penalties for trafficking factor in the quantity of drugs involved, where they are sold and how they are distributed. Prosecutors seek especially harsh sentences when drugs are dealt to young people.
You Need A Lawyer Who Can Give You Options
At Jacquelyn Ford Law, P.C., we work to dismantle or cast doubt upon cases brought by prosecutors. One of our skills is the ability to negotiate charges down, from very serious charges like trafficking to something you can live with, like possession with intent. It makes a huge difference when sentences are handed down.
Otherwise, we will fight to have charges dismissed entirely. When this is impossible, we seek outcomes that do not involve prison time. We sincerely care about our clients and their families, because there is usually a decent person who got caught up in the wrong scene. Our goal is really to help save your life — not only from harsh punishment, but from future mistakes as well.
