Drug trafficking charges in any U.S. state are something to be taken seriously, but penalties are exceptionally harsh in Georgia. You should avoid giving any statements to law enforcement to avoid the possibility of incriminating yourself. Rather, you should exercise your legal right to maintain silent, and have a knowledgeable drug trafficking attorney argue on your behalf.
Any drug trafficking offense is prosecuted as a felony charge, and this can alter the rest of your life if you are found guilty as charged. It is difficult to beat drug trafficking charges, because law enforcement often has airtight evidence that you a) had controlled substances and b) distributed them unlawfully. However, hope is not lost if you’ve been charged with drug trafficking. Even one small error or a violation of your legal rights perpetrated by law enforcement could turn your case around. At the very least, a lawyer can help you negotiate the terms of a plea deal to mitigate the penalties you may face for Georgia drug trafficking charges.
Retaining legal counsel is incredibly important when charged with a drug crime, especially drug trafficking. Contact the Law Offices of Benjamin Bradley Reed, P.C. today to speak to a skilled Canton drug trafficking lawyer. Call (678) 647-1191 to schedule your free consultation.
I’ve Been Charged with Drug Trafficking in Georgia. What Should I Do?
Often, this charge does involve more than one state, as it generally involves distributing large amounts of controlled substances transported across state or national lines. That means you could even be charged with a federal crime, in which case the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) could become involved in your case. Because these agencies have likely followed you for years, it’s likely that their evidence against you is extremely compelling. The prosecution will be given this information on a silver platter, and it’s up to you and your criminal defense attorney to counter it. For this reason, it’s imperative to contact a skilled drug trafficking lawyer in Canton as soon as you are aware of an impending investigation against you, or if you have been arrested already.
