Similar to drug distribution charges, drug trafficking charges are brought against people alleged to have possessed or sold illegal drugs or controlled substances, generally in large quantities. Trafficking charges, however, also involve the illegal transportation of drugs and illegal substance into and throughout the country. This usually includes moving the drugs across the South Carolina border and through various regions.
These charges are the most serious types of drug charges and are often brought in federal court. The penalties associated with this type of charge generally carry a mandatory minimum sentence. There is a lot on the line as you face these charges. It is important that you contact a skilled criminal defense attorney as quickly as possible to begin defending yourself.
