Drug Trafficking Penalties

Possession with intent to deliver can be based on surveillance of drug transactions, but more often, it is based purely on the amount of drugs or possession of a scale or baggies. If you were holding more than a recreational amount when stopped in traffic or searched, you may find yourself charged with a state jail felony or greater felony with the possibility of two or more years in prison.

Kurt Gransee is a former assistant district attorney who has defended the accused for more than 25 years. He is very familiar with the tactics used by prosecutors such as charging the highest plausible offense to gain leverage in plea negotiations. Our intervention often drops the charges from trafficking or possession with intent to simple drug possession, which can make a world of difference in the options and the outcome for our clients. Once the case is charged accordingly, we can decide on the merits of the case and the desires of our client to negotiate a plea or proceed to trial.
