Drug Trafficking in Marietta
Intent to Distribute Drugs
Have you been arrested for drug trafficking? This is a serious offense that needs to be addressed as soon as possible by a dedicated Marietta criminal defense attorney. Drug trafficking is a form of highly illegal drug trading that involves organized crimes and black market. The majority of the drugs that are obtained through trafficking often illegally cross borders and end up in the hands of criminals whose sole intent is the sale of these narcotics. Georgia has very strict laws against drug use, possession and trafficking and if you are found possessing any illegal substance with intent to distribute, you may be charged with drug trafficking.
If you are convicted of trafficking, there are a set of minimum penalties that every convicted individual must face. These penalties are overseen by the federal government and if you are found guilty you will face prison time, fines and probation. If the prosecution has enough evidence to determine that you were in possession of substance that you were intending to sell, you could have your charges elevated to a higher offense as well. It is imperative that you work with an attorney right away if you have been arrested and charged with drug trafficking in Marietta.
