What is Drug Trafficking?

Drug trafficking is a serious criminal offense involving the illegal manufacturing, distribution, transportation, or sale of controlled substances. In North Carolina, the law defines drug trafficking based on the type and quantity of the controlled substance involved. The severity of penalties varies depending on factors such as the type and amount of drugs, the defendant's criminal history, and whether the offense occurred near a school or other protected areas.

What are the Penalties for Drug Trafficking in North Carolina?

The penalties for drug trafficking convictions in North Carolina are severe and can have far-reaching consequences. Convictions may result in:

  • Substantial fines
  • Lengthy prison sentences
  • Permanent criminal record

The severity of the punishment depends on the Schedule of the controlled substance involved and the quantity in possession. For example, trafficking in larger quantities typically carries more severe penalties.

Defenses Against Drug Trafficking Charges

Some common defenses against drug trafficking charges may include:

  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If law enforcement violated your Fourth Amendment rights by performing an illegal search or seizure, the evidence obtained may be deemed inadmissible in court.
  • Lack of Knowledge or Intent: Proving that you were oblivious of the presence of illegal drugs or that you lacked the intent to distribute them can be a viable defense strategy.
  • Chain of Custody Issues: We can meticulously scrutinize the handling and storage of seized evidence to identify any discrepancies that may cast doubt on its integrity.
  • Entrapment: If law enforcement induced you to commit a crime that you otherwise would not have committed, we may argue that you were a victim of entrapment.
  • Insufficient Evidence: We can challenge the prosecution's evidence to ensure that they meet the burden of proof required for a conviction.

The Opinions That Matter Most

    “I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!”
    I was facing 3 charges, granted the police officers completely overcharged and without merit, however, Trevor knew what to do in order to prepare a strong case to make sure that when he spoke with the DA this would be clearly displayed. If convicted of one of the charges I was accused of it would have put my employment in jeopardy. Needless to say, I was overjoyed and elated when I received his call that "ALL" charges had been dismissed! He charged me a reasonable fee and accepted a payment plan! I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!

    “I have my kids thanks to Mr. Avery.”
    I hired Mr. Avery to represent me for my custody case. He was upfront with me about what to expect right from the beginning and he came through. He was easy to talk to, and I knew he was being honest with me about my case. I had to call him a couple of times after business hours because of my work schedule and he still made time to answer my questions. I have my kids thanks to Mr. Avery. I would recommend him to anyone.
