Defense Lawyers For Those Accused Of Drug Trafficking In Georgia

Drug trafficking charges are among the most serious drug offenses you can face. If you are accused of drug trafficking, you need to reach out to one of our criminal defense lawyers at The Law Offices of Blake A. Poole, LLC, without delay.

Our Georgia criminal defense lawyers are skilled negotiators and litigators with prosecutorial experience, so we understand how prosecutors think – and what it takes to successfully challenge drug trafficking charges.

Penalties For Trafficking Cocaine, Marijuana And Other Substances

Criminals convicted of drug trafficking in Georgia can face felony charges. Schedule I and II drug possession, such as LSD, cocaine and marijuana are punishable with up to 30 to 40 years or life in prison. Suspects could face up to 10 years in prison if found in possession of Schedule II, IV or V drugs.

A charge often depends on the quantity of a substance found in someone’s possession. A suspect could be charged with drug trafficking if they have several pounds of marijuana, but could face the same criminal conviction for possessing just an ounce of “hard” drugs, like cocaine or ecstasy.

How Drug Schedules Work Against You In Georgia

Every drug is classified according to a federal “schedule.” Drugs with higher schedules have little to no official use in the medical field and can lead to severe abuse and addiction. Drugs are classified from Schedule I to V, with Schedule I drugs being the most dangerous and holding the highest risk of severe criminal penalties.

Explore Your Defense Options For Drug Trafficking Charges

Our criminal defense lawyers can help prove that a client was not the only one who may have had access to illegal drugs, that they were in possession of a lawful prescription drug or that they did not participate in a drug transaction, but were merely a witness.
