Federal Drug Trafficking Charges
Charged with a Federal Crime in Cobb County?
Transporting illegal substances across state lines constitutes trafficking
and falls under federal crimes meaning the penalties of a conviction can
be quite steep. You have a right to a legal defense however, and a Cobb
County federal crimes attorney from my firm can work to protect you from
a conviction and safeguard your freedoms.
At The Sylvan Firm LLC, I prioritize the needs of my clients and have achieved
considerable success in fighting their criminal charges. I have been named
to the Top 100 National Trial Lawyers and have been admitted to the Federal
Court for the Northern District of Georgia. In addition, I have prior
experience serving in the DA’s office so I know the common strategies
used by prosecutors and can use this to undermine their case against you.
What can I be facing for drug trafficking?
Consequences for drug trafficking vary widely depending on the drug in
transit, the amount, and whether it was for personal use or not.
Penalties for a trafficking conviction can include:
- 10 years or more in federal prison
- Potentially thousands of dollars in fines
In addition, drug trafficking laws do not require mandatory minimum sentences,
which means if convicted you could be barred from seeking parole until
after a certain number of years. For this reason alone, you need to seek
legal help from a trusted Cobb County criminal defense lawyer.
