Drug trafficking in Pennsylvania, as the name references, it's the trafficking of drugs or the, say, distribution or selling of drugs. The consequences or the punishments will vary. If a person were to be convicted or were to plead guilty to such an offense, the person's prior criminal history or prior record score would, of course, be a consideration. The offense gravity score would also be a major consideration. The Pennsylvania sentencing guidelines would impact the potential sentence. The weight of the drugs that the person was accused of or convicted of trafficking or distributing would be a major factor. The type of drug that was trafficked, it's based on different schedule. The controlled substance schedule in terms of some drugs are regarded as more egregious to be distributed than others, so that would be a factor. Fundamentally, a person can go to jail or prison. They could receive parole, probation. There could be other conditions, fines, and costs. The consequences can be incredibly serious if you're accused of drug trafficking. Having an experienced Pennsylvania criminal defense attorney will help you best defend against charges of this nature and they should be involved as early as possible to help you understand and navigate the criminal process.
