Charged With Drug Trafficking? Don't Get Overwhelmed
A state or federal trafficking charge is the most significant in the realm of criminal drug charges. The South Carolina drug statute is more than 100 pages long, involving extremely extensive nuances and categories. A drug charge is often incremental, and in any case where there is a second charge, it is quite possible to get up to a 25-year mandatory minimum sentence.
Because of the high stakes of these charges, working with an experienced attorney is all but essential.
We Have Experience In Drug Trafficking Cases
Because we have more than a quarter century of criminal defense experience, there is almost no drug charge issue for which we are not prepared. Depending on you or your loved one's unique circumstances, wants and needs, we are able to either work toward outright dismissal or to mitigate consequences as much as possible.
It is important to note that in South Carolina there are places where the speed limit drops quickly and significantly. In these cases, officers frequently attempt to stop cars for speeding so they can search them. If at any point in a drug charge your rights have been violated, we are ready to attack the prosecution's case as aggressively as possible. If you or a loved one has been charged, however, it is critical that you reach out and begin protecting your rights decisively from the very outset of a charge. One mistake can turn a dismissal into a conviction.
