Drug Trafficking & Distribution Defense

Drug trafficking involves the distribution of drugs in certain quantities defined by law. Trafficking may be charged in federal or state courts, although in federal court it is generally referenced as drug distribution. 

Oklahoma Drug Trafficking Law

In Oklahoma, trafficking can occur even with small, but distributable quantities:

Drug

Trafficking

Aggravated Trafficking

Marijuana

25 lbs.

1,000 lbs.

Cocaine or Crack Cocaine

28 grams

450 grams

Methamphetamine

20 grams

450 grams

Amphetamine

20 grams

450 grams

LSD

50 doses

 
PCP

1 oz.

 
MDMA (Ecstacy)

30 tablets or 10 grams

 
Heroin

10 grams

 
Morphine

1,000 grams

 
Oxycodone

400 grams

 

Trafficking is punishable in Oklahoma generally by 4 years to life imprisonment (or two times the range of punishment for possession with intent to distribute). If the client has a prior felony drug conviction, the punishment range is three times the range (generally 6 years to life). There are substantial monetary fines in addition to the mandatory imprisonment.

Aggravated Drug Trafficking

Aggravated trafficking is punishable by 15 years to life in prison and the client must serve 85% of the sentence before being eligible for parole. If a client has two or more felony convictions (at any time) for violations of the Uniform Controlled Dangerous Substances Act (effectively any felony drug crimes), then the range of punishment for trafficking is 20 years to LWOP (life without parole).

Suppression of Evidence in Drug Trafficking & Distribution Cases

It may be possible to suppress evidence (meaning to exclude evidence) if the facts and circumstances allow. By way of example, the U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that “Police may not extend an otherwise-completed traffic stop, absent reasonable suspicion, in order to conduct dog sniff . . . .” Rodriguez v. United States, 135 S. Ct. 1609 (April 15, 2015). That ruling, however, is narrowly written, but the Supreme Court reiterated that a “traffic stop ‘prolonged beyond’ the ‘time reasonably required to complete [the stop’s] mission’ is unlawful.” See Rodriguez (citing Illinois v. Caballes, 543 U.S. at 407).

Please understand that there are so many exceptions to the Fourth Amendment that the “fruits” of the search may be allowed — particularly in searches of vehicles (rather than search of your home). These exceptions often include plain view, plain smell, exigent circumstances, search incident to arrest, inventory or impound search, good faith of the officers, etc.
