Drug Trafficking Defense
Do you know the difference between a state charge or a federal charge for drug trafficking? The key difference is that a federal charge will expectedly result in a harsher sentence. Some of these possible penalties include the following:
- Class D felony – Possession of any controlled substance (excluding marijuana): Fines up to $10,000 and up to 7 years in prison.
- Class B felony – Distribution of any controlled substance (excluding marijuana): Prison term of 5 to 15 years.
- Class A felony – Distribution of a controlled substance within 2,000 feet of a school: Prison term of 10 years to life.
Sentences for a felony could range anywhere from 5 years to life.
