Trafficking in Illegal Drugs (AKA “Drug Trafficking”) is an offense that is charged based on a person possessing a certain quantity of a controlled dangerous substance. The penalties for drug trafficking are stiff under both Oklahoma and federal law.

Under Oklahoma law, defendants charged with Trafficking in Illegal Drugs or Aggravated Trafficking in Illegal Drugs are not eligible to receive a deferred or suspended sentence on the charge. This means mandatory prison time for those convicted of the offense(s). In addition, the Oklahoma drug trafficking statutes provide for hefty fines (up to $500,000 in some cases), as well as prohibit courts from allowing defendants an appeal bond following a conviction under the Oklahoma drug trafficking statutes.

Under federal law, drug trafficking convictions also carry severe penalties. A person convicted in federal court of drug trafficking can be sentenced to up to life in federal prison, depending upon the quantity of drugs involved. Some federal drug trafficking convictions carry mandatory minimum sentences.
