NJ Drug Trafficking Lawyers

By Spodek Law Group | May 23, 2023

Protect Your Future with a New Jersey Drug Trafficking Lawyer

You’re suddenly and shockingly arrested and charged with drug trafficking in New Jersey. Your world is turned upside down in an instant. Do you know what to do next? Your very first course of action should be to secure high-quality legal representation from an experienced New Jersey drug trafficking lawyer. With potentially devastating penalties looming, such as prison time and hefty fines, you need a fierce advocate to protect your rights and fight for a just resolution in your case.

The Inescapable Ensnarement of Drug Trafficking Charges

In the clutches of the law, drug trafficking charges can be alarmingly easy to face. Under New Jersey legislation, you can find yourself facing drug trafficking charges if you are found to have engaged in any of the following: illegally fostering the production, distribution, transportation, movement, or sale of controlled substances or illegal drugs. Hold your breath – New Jersey allows for drug trafficking charges to be brought upon an individual regardless of the amount of substances involved.

Illegal drugs that may result in drug trafficking charges encompass a vast array of substances, such as:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • Marijuana
  • LSD
  • PCP
  • Prescription medications

For a drug trafficking conviction, the prosecution bears the weight of proving all elements of the crime without a shred of doubt.

The Heavy Burden of Drug Trafficking Penalties

Like a shadow on your soul, drug trafficking is an overwhelmingly grave felony offense. The severity of consequences for this crime hinge upon the type of substance involved. If marijuana is at the core of the case, potential fines can range from $25,000 to $200,000, with prison sentences spanning from 3 to 15 years. For cases involving heroin, the realm of penance is more expansive – fines can lie anywhere between $50,000 and $500,000, while imprisonment might last anywhere from 3 to 25 years.

In addition to fines and prison time, the court may cast an array of penalties upon defendants, such as probation, court-ordered treatment, drug testing, GPS monitoring, community service, and others. A felony conviction may strip an individual of certain civil rights, and if not legally residing in the United States, deportation could be lurking on the horizon.

Specific penalties depend on the details surrounding a case and the defendant’s criminal history. Prior drug convictions can tremendously increase the likelihood of significant prison time. To learn more about potential penalties and gain insight tailored to your unique circumstances, contact our office and schedule a consultation.

Unearthing Defenses and Plotting Your Path Forward

Defenses for drug trafficking charges can emerge from the unique factors of your case. One possible avenue may arise when the prosecution can prove possession of the drugs but fails to provide evidence of an intent to deliver, sell, or transfer the substances. When the prosecution cannot establish all aspects of drug trafficking, the charges should either be dismissed or amended to accurately reflect the circumstances.

In other instances, a defendant’s constitutional rights may be violated due to law enforcement’s failure to adhere to specific protocols. An example of this would be evidence obtained without a search warrant, constituting an illegal search. In situations lacking a warrant, the police need to identify an exception to the warrant requirement that justifies their actions. If none is presented, the evidence must be barred from consideration.

If the drugs in question were legally possessed or transferred, the charges must be contested. This situation might arise if the defendant had a legitimate prescription for the substance in question.

Crafting a defense in a drug trafficking case can be a complicated endeavor, urging the need for consultation with an experienced drug trafficking lawyer.

Steps to Take When Charged with Drug Trafficking

Upon facing drug trafficking charges or an investigation, your first move should be to assert your right to remain silent. Immediately seek out an attorney to represent you throughout the investigation and ensuing legal proceedings. Document and preserve any relevant information or evidence, including witness information.

When meeting with an attorney, disclose your version of events and provide all pertinent information.
