Drug Trafficking

Drug Trafficking in Southern California

Have Our Ventura Criminal Defense Lawyer on Your Side

Drug trafficking is drug dealing executed at a high level, typically involving more than just hand-to-hand exchanged of drugs for money. In addition to sales of large quantities, drug trafficking may entail additional criminal offenses, such as drug manufacturing, money laundering, and even smuggling drugs across the border.

This type of drug crime is associated with severe penalties, which is why those who have been accused of or charged with drug trafficking need experienced legal representation from a skilled attorney.

At Wilfert Law, P.C., we have been protecting the rights and futures of our clients throughout Ventura County for more than 10 years. Do not risk fighting these serious drug charges without reputable legal counsel.

Drug Trafficking Penalties

You can be charged with drug trafficking at either a state or federal level. Under California law, transportation of drugs from one place to another is considered a felony offense, punishable by a maximum prison sentence of five years. Furthermore, those convicted of carrying drugs across more than two counties face a maximum prison sentence of nine years.

Most federal charges for drug trafficking carry a mandatory minimum sentence of at least 10 years with a maximum sentence of life. Additionally, a conviction could include a fine of up to $10 million.
