New York is known for having some of the toughest laws against drug crimes in the United States, and drug trafficking is no exception. Drug trafficking crimes may include several types of drug possession, including the manufacturing, transporting, distributing, or selling of illegal drugs. In order to be charged with any type of drug possession, a person must have knowingly and illegally been in possession of a controlled substance. While there are other factors that can contribute to the severity of a person’s punishment for drug trafficking, the penalties will rely heavily on the weight and quantity of the drugs in question and may require a Federal Criminal attorney.
Drug trafficking crimes, like all other types of possession, are charged as felonies and misdemeanors, which may result in hefty consequences. Charges may range anywhere from class E – A felonies, and can lead to life in prison and major fines. The class by which a person is charged can depend on the type of drugs, with more dangerous drugs receiving steeper penalties, and whether or not the defendant intended to sell to minors.
First-time offenders who are considered non-major drug traffickers may only be punished by 1-2 years in prison, while major drug traffickers could face 15 years to life behind bars. The minimum fine is $5,000, while the maximum could be double the defendant’s profit from the commission of the intended drug sale, or $100,000.
Those convicted of a drug trafficking felony may also suffer additional consequences after their sentence is through. A class A felony drug trafficking crime will require a 7-year period of post-release supervision after prison. A convicted felon will also have to deal with the inconvenience of a criminal record, which can make it far more difficult to retain employment and will likely influence housing opportunities.
If you are facing drug trafficking charges, don’t wait to seek legal help. At the Law Offices of Robert Tsigler, PLLC, our attorney has a keen understanding of criminal law and can help your case, seeking to have your drug charges reduced or dismissed whenever possible. Whether you are a first-time offender facing a class E felony charge or a repeat major drug trafficker, we will ensure your legal rights are protected.
