Drug trafficking occurs when someone knowingly transports and delivers a control substance. A key element of drug trafficking charges is in the knowledge of what is being done. A prosecutor must prove that the accused individual intentionally delivered the controlled substance or is part of a group where someone in that group delivered the controlled substance. These charges are prosecuted aggressively, and if you are facing drug trafficking charges, you want to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Since 1983, Reed Prospere has helped clients in Dallas fight drug trafficking charges at both the state and federal levels.

What Constitutes Drug Trafficking?

Drug trafficking refers to the selling, transporting, delivery, or importing of controlled substances. Controlled substances in Texas are defined by the Texas Controlled Substances Act and are those which appear either in drug Schedules I through V, or in the Texas Penalty Groups.

Common drugs that are involved in trafficking cases include:

  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamines
  • Ecstasy or MDMA
  • Prescription drugs

Many people erroneously confused possession charges and trafficking charges. They are not the same thing. Both the federal and state government can pursue drug trafficking charges. Which court will handle your case depends on the circumstances surrounding the incident in question. If the crime occurred solely within Texas, the state court would likely handle your situation. However, if the alleged drug trafficking occurred across state lines, or involved federal property, your case will be handled by federal prosecutors.

Penalties for Drug Trafficking

All drug trafficking cases are felonies. The penalties you face if convicted are primarily dependent on the quantity of drugs involved in the trafficking case. The type of drug is also considered when determining punishments. Penalties for drug trafficking almost always include fines and jail time.

Examples of drug trafficking penalties include:

  • Possession of less than a gram: $10,000 fine, and up to 2 years in jail
  • Possession of on gram to 3.99 grams: $10,000 fine, and up to 20 years in jail
  • Possession of four to 199 grams: $10,000 fine, and up to 99 years in jail
  • Possession of 200 to 399 grams: $100,000 fine, and a potential life sentence
