What to do when charged with drug trafficking
The Charges Can Be Serious, But All Is Not Lost
Being charged with drug trafficking is a serious offense. A single conviction of such an act could lead to decades of prison and even substantial fines, depending on the charges, whether it is a state or federal crime, and depending on its severity.
You may require a lawyer with tremendous experience and knowledge in handling drug-related cases. At the Law Offices of Myles S. Breiner, we know how to help you build a strong defense against the charges you are convicted with.
Sentences for Drug Trafficking Vary Greatly
In the state of Hawaii, all drug-related crimes, which include possession, distribution, and sales, are defined as “promoting.” When convicted of promoting illegal drugs, they are punishable as either a misdemeanor or a felony.
- The incarceration for misdemeanor charges of drug selling can have a potential jail sentence of up to 1 year while felony charges have lengthy jail time.
- The fines associated with misdemeanor selling of illegal drugs are often up to $1,000 while felony convictions charge up to $250,000 or more.
- Drug convicts are also sentenced to probation which usually lasts up to 12 months. But a sentence of 2-5 years is also common.
