Drug Trafficking and Sales

Peter D. Aiken State and Federal Criminal Defense Aiken and OHalloran 941-366-3506

Arrested in Lee, Charlotte , Sarasota or Manatee for Illegal Drug Sales or Drug Trafficking?

In most cases, trafficking of marijuana, cocaine, heroin or opiates carries a minimum mandatory prison sentence. You can be prosecuted in either federal or state court.

We have more than 30 years of experience defending trafficking cases. We will represent you at bond reduction hearings and work to get you released on bond while your drug charges are being fought in court.

Drug trafficking does not mean that you were selling drugs.

Marijuana Growing Defense Attorneys

Merely having a certain amount of a controlled substance on your person, in your car or in your house is enough to get you arrested for drug trafficking. If you have over 25 pounds of pot or over 25 marijuana plants, including seedlings, the prosecution may accuse you of operating a grow house, and you could be charged with trafficking in marijuana. You can be charged with trafficking in drugs by merely having a certain quantity of oxycodone, Oxycontin, fentanyl, Dilaudid, heroin or Xanax. You could be facing up to 25 years in prison.

Knowing how to defend comes from knowing how to prosecute. Do not wait until arraignment to hire a private attorney.

The police may have made serious mistakes in getting a search warrant or illegally detaining you on I-75. If you were arrested for trafficking by the Florida Highway Patrol, the Sarasota Sheriff’s Office , Manatee Sheriff’s Office, Lee Sheriff’s office, Charlotte Sheriff’s Office or Cape Coral’s Police Department, we may be able to prove you were illegally stopped or held too long while a drug dog was brought to the scene. We may be able to convince the prosecutor not to file charges.

If your car or truck was seized and you received a notice of forfeiture, we may be able to get your vehicle back.

Two seasoned DUI lawyers taking on the toughest cases

All lawyers are not created equal …

You may have a solid defense and not know it…Was your stop legal?  Were you unlawfully detained?  Was the Search Legal?  Were you advised of your rights?  Did they pressure you to confess?  Was there more than one person in the car or the house?

You may not be a good candidate for probation…Sometimes it only sets you up for failure.  Taking the easy way out with a plea, waiving a legitimate defense may come back to haunt you when you have a probation violation. Know your rights before you give them up.  Talked to an experienced drug lawyer first!
