Criminal Defense Representation In Drug Trafficking Cases
People often believe that drug trafficking charges only apply to very large quantities of controlled substances being transported as a part of an organized operation. In the real world, while many drug trafficking cases involve large-scale allegations, you can be accused of trafficking in South Carolina for allegedly possessing 10 grams or more of a controlled substance.
A conviction for a trafficking charge is life-changing. A first-time conviction carries a sentence of three to 10 years in prison. Repeat offenses increase the mandatory minimums — a third-time conviction for trafficking brings exposure to a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison.
