What is Drug Trafficking?

Drug trafficking involves the illegal distribution, transportation, sale, or possession of controlled substances like cocaine, marijuana, heroin, methamphetamine, and other illicit drugs. Colorado has stringent laws in place to combat drug trafficking, and these offenses are taken seriously by law enforcement and the judicial system.

Drug trafficking is distinct from simple drug possession. Trafficking charges often hinge on factors such as the quantity of drugs involved, evidence of intent to distribute, and the presence of manufacturing or distribution paraphernalia.

What are the Consequences of Drug Trafficking in Colorado?

The penalties for drug trafficking in Colorado are severe and will differ depending on the type and quantity of drugs involved. Convictions can lead to significant prison sentences, substantial fines, and a lasting criminal record. Colorado law classifies drug trafficking offenses into different levels, each associated with its own set of penalties:

  • Level 1 Felony: Involves large quantities of controlled substances, often exceeding 225 grams.
  • Level 2 Felony: Pertains to trafficking involving 14 to 225 grams of controlled substances.
  • Level 3 Felony: Applies to drug trafficking activities involving 7 to 14 grams of controlled substances.
  • Level 4 Felony: Involves trafficking of 4 to 7 grams of controlled substances.

It's important to note that the penalties may be enhanced if certain aggravating factors are present, such as prior criminal history or the involvement of minors in the offense.

Defenses Against Drug Trafficking Charges

When facing drug trafficking charges, you need a legal team that can devise a strategic defense to protect your rights and future. Our seasoned attorneys at Fife Luneau, P.C. are skilled in exploring various defense strategies, which may include:

  • Unlawful Search and Seizure: If law enforcement conducts an illegal search or seizure of evidence, we can challenge the validity of the evidence against you.
  • Lack of Intent: Drug trafficking charges often require demonstrating intent to distribute. We can work to prove that you had no intention of selling or distributing the controlled substances.
  • Inaccurate Weighing or Measurement: Accurate measurement of drug quantities is crucial for determining the appropriate charges and penalties. We can question the accuracy of measurements to potentially weaken the prosecution's case.
  • Entrapment: If you were coerced or induced by law enforcement to commit a drug trafficking offense, we could argue that you were a victim of entrapment.
  • Chain of Custody Issues: Proper evidence handling is vital in drug trafficking cases. We can investigate whether the evidence was mishandled, raising doubts about its reliability.
