Drug Trafficking Charges Are Serious

Drug Charges

Police may ask you to "cooperate" in their investigation with an assurance of lenient treatment. Don't make hasty decisions that can not be undone with out talking to a lawyer first.

Under North Carolina law, possession of certain amounts of a controlled substance can result in a conviction for a trafficking offense that carries a mandatory prison sentence, even for a first-time offender.

If you have been charged with drug trafficking or drug sale or delivery, you need to take immediate action to protect your rights.
