Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A. - Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense Lawyer

Drug trafficking requires an experienced legal advocate

Drug trafficking isn't the same crime as possession of a controlled substance. The penalties are much more severe for a drug trafficking charge. In order for the prosecution to prove such a charge, they must show beyond a reasonable doubt that you willfully and knowingly were in possession of the drug and that there was intent on your behalf to distribute the drug to others. However, this doesn't mean that there has to be evidence that you were trying to sell the drug -- only that you had the intent to do so. In most cases, simply having a large quantity of the drug in your possession is enough to show intent.

At the law offices of Michael A Gottlieb PA, we understand how serious these charges are. For over 20 years, Michael A. Gottlieb has helped his clients fight similar charges such as yours and with a great track record of success.

If you are charged with drug trafficking, it's important that you begin building your defense as soon as possible. The prosecution will do everything they can to get a conviction and a maximum sentence. The penalties for trafficking heroin, for instance, can be a fine of between $1 million and $5 million and a prison sentence of up to 20 years. However, if you're caught with a kilogram or more, the penalties rise to $10 million to $50 million and 10 years to life in prison. As you can see, this is a serious charge.
