What To Do When Charged With Drug Trafficking

These Are Very Serious Charges, But All Is Not Lost

There is no way to sugarcoat it: if you have been accused of drug trafficking, you are facing the most serious drug charges that exist. It is no exaggeration to say that a conviction for drug trafficking can destroy your life.

This definitely is a time when you need a lawyer with tremendous experience, knowledge and skill at defending drug crimes. At the Law Offices of Myles S. Breiner, we know how to build a strong defense against drug charges.

Sentences For Drug Trafficking Vary Greatly

Drug-trafficking laws punish the sale, transporting and importing of illegal controlled substances, such as marijuana, heroin, cocaine and methamphetamines. Drug trafficking also applies to the unlawful distribution of prescription drugs.

The penalties for drug trafficking vary. Sentences for drug trafficking generally range from three years to life in prison. You could be charged with trafficking if you are found with illegal drugs and the police believe you intended to sell the drugs. If you are found with a large amount of drugs or cash when arrested, you probably will be charged with drug trafficking.

How The Law Protects You

There is hope, however.

Mr. Breiner is an attorney who has negotiated and tried hundreds of criminal cases. Prosecutors in Hawaii know he will examine every element of a drug arrest and will work to get the best possible result.

Under the U.S. Constitution, defendants are able to challenge drug-trafficking charges. For example, if the case involves a vehicle stop, was there probable cause for the stop? Was a search warrant required and then executed properly? Every case is unique, but it may be possible to get drug charges reduced or dismissed. To make that happen, though, you need a lawyer like Mr. Breiner, who knows what to look for in an investigation and who will defend your rights at every step of the case.
