What is Drug Trafficking & Distribution?

Drug trafficking and distribution involve the illegal transportation, sale, or distribution of controlled substances like narcotics, prescription medications, and illicit drugs. In New York, law enforcement takes these offenses very seriously and carries severe consequences upon conviction. Drug trafficking can occur across state lines or within the state itself, often involving complex networks of individuals working together to distribute controlled substances.

What are the Penalties for Drug Trafficking & Distribution in New York?

The penalties for drug trafficking and distribution convictions in New York can be harsh and life-altering. The severity of the penalties depends on various factors, including the type and quantity of drugs involved, the defendant's criminal history, and whether the distribution occurred near schools or other protected areas. The consequences for drug trafficking & distribution in New York typically include prison time and hefty fines.

Apart from imprisonment and fines, those convicted can expect to face asset forfeiture, and a tarnished criminal record can be the consequence of drug trafficking and distribution convictions.

Defenses Against Drug Trafficking & Distribution Charges

Some potential defenses against drug trafficking & distribution charges may include:

  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If evidence was received unlawfully, such as through an illegal search, it may be suppressed in court.
  • Lack of Intent: Demonstrating that you did not have the intention to distribute or traffic drugs can be a valid defense.
  • Entrapment: If law enforcement induced you into committing a crime you wouldn't have otherwise committed, entrapment may be a viable defense.
  • Chain of Custody Issues: Challenging the proper handling and documentation of evidence can weaken the prosecution's case.
  • Violation of Rights: If your rights were violated during the arrest or investigation, this could impact the admissibility of evidence.
