Drug Trafficking in New York

Drug trafficking is more serious and is differentiated from drug distribution by the sheer weight of the drugs involved. It may or may not include moving drugs across state lines or into the country. It can include charges for illegal manufacture, distribution, and possession with the intent to sell, as well as conspiracy.

In New York, operating as a major trafficker is covered under Section 220.77 of the New York Penal Code, which defines such a trafficker as someone who profits from selling controlled substances valued at $75,000 or more. It is charged as the highest-level felony, a Class A-I, punishable by 15 up to 40 years in prison. Fines may range up to $100,000 or double the financial gain made from the sale of the drugs.

All convictions for selling drugs in New York are charged and penalized as felonies. Prison sentences can range from five up to 20 years in prison depending on the type and quantity of drug as well as other circumstances. You may also be subject to years of probation after release as well.

Federal Drug Trafficking Charges

Drug trafficking is a federal felony which is much more serious than drug possession. It not only applies to narcotics such as heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and other illegal substances but also to the illegal distribution or sale of prescription medicines obtained through fraud, such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, sleeping pills, opiates, and other painkillers or pharmaceuticals.

The penalties for distribution, sales, or manufacture of controlled substances under federal guidelines will depend on the weight or quantity of the drugs found in your possession. For example, you can be sentenced to up to five years in prison for 50 kilograms of marijuana, five to 40 years in prison for 100 grams of heroin, and 10 years to life for one kilogram of heroin, five kilograms of cocaine, or 1000 kilograms of marijuana. If a gun was part of the trafficking or if someone was killed or seriously injured, penalties will increase.
