Under California law, drug trafficking and distribution refer to the illegal transportation, sale, or delivery of controlled substances. This can involve various types of drugs, including but not limited to, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, and prescription drugs such as opioids.
The extent of the charge will depend on the type and quantity of drugs involved, the intention to sell or distribute, the area of distribution, and whether minors were targeted or involved. Our San Bernardino drug trafficking defense attorneys at Bullard & Powell, APC. are well-versed in the intricacies of these charges and are ready to guide you through your legal journey.
Penalties for Drug Trafficking & Distribution
Convictions for drug trafficking and distribution can lead to severe penalties in California.
These may include:
- Felony charges, with jail terms ranging from 3 to 9 years for a first offense.
- Heavy fines, potentially in excess of $50,000.
- Asset forfeiture, including cash and property involved in the drug trade.

At Bullard & Powell, APC., we believe in the principle of "innocent until proven guilty." Our San Bernardino drug trafficking lawyers are adept at identifying and implementing robust defense strategies to protect our clients' interests, no matter the odds or obstacles we may face.
Potential strategies against drug trafficking charges may include:
- Insufficient Evidence: We will scrutinize the prosecution's case for weaknesses, such as questionable evidence or unreliable witnesses.
- Violation of Rights: If law enforcement violated your rights during the arrest or investigation, we will work to have the evidence dismissed.
- Entrapment: If you were induced to commit a crime that you would not ordinarily commit, we could argue entrapment.
- Mistaken Identity or False Accusation: We will rigorously cross-examine the prosecution's witnesses and provide evidence to prove your innocence.
