Georgia Drug Trafficking Penalties
The penalties for a conviction vary depending on factors such as the schedule classification and amount of the drug. However, one statement applies regardless of the specifics of the trafficking charges you face: a conviction means you will be spending anywhere from five years to the rest of your life in prison. Even the shortest trafficking sentence will not be the end of your problems. A felony drug conviction will haunt you for the rest of your life as you pursue employment, housing and other opportunities. The best way to avoid these problems is to have an experienced defense attorney protecting your rights.
Trial Experience Makes A Difference In Drug Cases
Drug charges such as trafficking and distribution are subject to mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines; that means the judge has little – if any – discretion when it comes to reducing the length of your sentence due to mitigating factors. Your best bet at avoiding these harsh sentences is to have an attorney who can use those mitigating factors to obtain a dismissal of the charges, negotiate a plea agreement or achieve an acquittal.
Our attorneys are trial attorneys. They are skilled at building strong cases that can withstand the rigors of a trial and remain strong under the scrutiny of a jury. The prosecution knows we will be prepared to pull out all the stops at trial; this allows us to negotiate from a position of strength. Whether your case can be resolved through negotiation or requires a trial, one thing is certain: we are equipped to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
