Drug Trafficking in Georgia
Drug trafficking is a serious
drug crime that will be aggressively investigated and prosecuted by highly trained
federal officials. Because drug trafficking is a federal violation, prosecutors
and law enforcement officials working for the United States government
(including the FBI and DEA) will be investigating your case. These people
have the money, power, and time to conduct full-scale investigations into
any allegations that you are engaging in unlawful activity. Once they
have obtained sufficient evidence to lawfully conduct an arrest, you will
be arrested and brought into custody. Once in police custody, you will
be subjected to vigorous questioning for days, maybe even weeks.
Penalties for Drug Trafficking
If you are found guilty of drug trafficking, you will be sentenced to harsh
penalties without a doubt. That being said, the extent of your penalties
will depend largely on the quantity of drugs being trafficked, as well
as the type of drugs being trafficked. For example, if you sell drugs
to a minor, or you conduct drug sales or
distribution on or near a school, prison time will be far longer.

Trafficking 4 grams of heroin or 10 pounds of
- 5 year minimum prison sentence
