Drug Crimes in Pennsylvania: What is Drug Trafficing?

Drug Crimes in Pennsylvania:  What is Drug Trafficking?  The only thing that separates a simple possession charge from a drug trafficking charge is the amount of drugs seized from your home, vehicle or person.  if you possess more of a drug than you could reasonably use yourself, it is assumed that you probably will sell the drug to dealers who will distribute them to users.  If you are convicted of drug trafficing, you will likely face a mandatory minumum jail sentence and fines that my cause much hardship on you and your family.  You need a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania drug trafficking defense attorney that is experienced with an outstanding track record for sucess to help you defend your rights and protect your interests.

The war on drugs has led to increased penalties for defedants convicted of trafficking illegal substances.  In Pennsylvania alone, individuals convicted of drug trafficking under 18 Pa.C.S. 7508 are likely to face serious penalties such as:

•  Mandatory minimum jail sentences.  A defendant who is convicted of drug trafficking may be required to serve a certain number of years in jail, without the possibility of parole.  You will not be eligible for early release or diversionary programs despite the overcrowding of Pennsylvania's prisons.

•  Forfeiture of property.  Judges are authorized to seize assets that are presumed to be profits from your criminal activities when you are convicted of a drug trafficking crime.  Depending on the circumstances of your case, your personal assets may be frozen while your case proceeds to trial.

•  Sentence enhancements for prior convictions.  if you have been previously convicted of a crime, you could face a graeter sentence due to your criminal record and apparent recidivism.
