Drug Trafficking

Lincoln Drug Crime Defense Attorney

The transportation and illegal import of controlled substances such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamines are punishable by state and federal laws. If you've been charged with drug trafficking or any other drug crime, you need to seek the advice of an experienced and tenacious Lincoln drug traffic attorney.

Interstate Drug Trafficking

Between 2007 and 2012, the number of arrests made for the sale, manufacturing and transport of marijuana alone increased by 40%. It's no secret that the Nebraska Interstate 80 has become known as a drug pipeline by law enforcement and Nebraskan residents. Since Colorado passed legislation that allowed anyone over the age of 21 to buy marijuana, Nebraska has seen a steady increase in drug trafficking along their major interstates.

Our Lincoln Drug Attorneys are experienced handling drug trafficking cases and have a consistent track record of success.

Some common defenses to drug trafficking charges include:

  • Challenging the initial legality of the peace officer to stop the defendant
  • Challenging the legality of the search of the defendant's person, vehicle, residence or bags.
  • Challenge search warrants

Our Lincoln criminal attorneys can thoroughly investigate every avenue of your case to ensure we've built the best possible defense for you.

Penalties

If you've been arrested and charged with drug trafficking in Nebraska, the penalties can be severe. Depending what illegal substance, and how much you were caught with significantly affects your penalty. You could be charged with as little as a minor infraction or felony charges, face expensive fines and incarceration.

Know Your Rights

When driving down the interstate, there are many reasons you could get pulled over: speeding, driving too slow, minor traffic violations, tail lights out, or cracks in your windshield. After they've pulled you over, the police will take note of the car. If they see any evidence of tampering (panels or screws altered), they may then ask to search the car. It's important to remember, the police are asking because they need permission.

You are legally allowed to the right of your privacy. If you've been pulled over for a minor traffic offense, for speeding or having a tail light out, the only information you need to provide is your driver's license and registration. You have the right to remain silent when asked questions.
