What is Drug Trafficking?

Sometimes when a person is arrested for a serious offense, law enforcement agents can be less than helpful when explaining why. This is often intentional, as to not risk saying too much that could possibly hurt the eventual prosecution’s chances of securing a conviction. As such, you might be wondering what details comprise the drug trafficking or related drug crime charges you now face.

In general, drug trafficking is considered a crime that involves:

  • Moving a large quantity of illegal drugs.
  • Hiding or concealing a large quantity of illegal drugs.
  • Arranging a large quantity of illegal drugs for sale or distribution.
  • Passing any amount of illegal drugs across state or international borders.

The common thread in drug trafficking charges is the larger than normal amount of narcotics in question. However, the amount needed to constitute the charge may be surprisingly small. It is possible to be charged with drug trafficking or distribution as long as you are found to be in possession of an amount of an illegal, scheduled substance that appears to go beyond what one would reasonably assume will be used by just yourself.

Challenging Drug Trafficking Charges & Fighting for Your Rights

When you are charged with drug trafficking, federal agencies like the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) may have an interest in your case. The opposition could have tremendous resources to ensure you are convicted and sentenced to extensive prison time and high fines, among other penalties. Be sure you are ready for whatever they can bring to their case by teaming up with a hard-hitting, truly-fearless Overland Park drug crimes defense lawyer like Attorney Gigstad.

There is no time to lose. Call (888) 387-2036 right away to start your defense.

Client-Centered Legal Represntation
    "Robert Was Able to Get My Case Dropped"

    "Took Care of Everything for Me"
    Took care of everything for me... I just gave him the paperwork. Pretty legit
    "Great to work with!"
    Mr. Gigstad was upfront and professional about what I would be facing from the very beginning. He worked to help me understand the situation and found the best available outcome for me, considering. I would hope if I ever need legal representation again I would be in the hands of someone as professional and experienced as Mr. Gigstad.
    Former Client
    "Robert Gigstad Is a Good down to Earth Attorney"
    Robert Gigstad is a good down to earth attorney. He helped my daughter with her case which included transporting and open container and a DUI. He was very reasonable on the cost too which we were extremely thankful.
    "Robert Quickly Found out What Actions I Could Pursue with the Moving Violation I Received"
    Robert quickly found out what actions I could pursue with the moving violation I received. He took care of everything for me, and all I had to was give him the paperwork.

Not only was Robert responsive, helpful and efficient, he was very respectful to my time and communicated with me constantly. I could always count on if I sent him something I would know what to expect by the next day. Chris maintained an exquisite level of professionalism and tack when dealing with my case. I never once felt like he was treating me as just another case and would recommend his services to anyone.
