Drug Crimes & Trafficking in New Mexico

Drug Crimes Attorney in Albuquerque, NM

Money and DrugsDrug trafficking is defined as manufacturing, distributing or possessing illegal substances with the intent to distribute. Even if you were not involved in drug trafficking, you may be charged with drug trafficking if you have a significant amount of a controlled substance in your possession.

In general, federal drug trafficking laws outline harsher penalties than state laws. If you are charged with felony drug trafficking, you may face the following penalties:

  • Prison term of at least one year
  • Fines
  • Supervised probation
  • Community service
  • Mandatory counseling and/or prevention courses

Under federal drug trafficking laws, the penalties may be even more severe if you are accused of drug trafficking in restricted areas (such as school zones), if another person was injured or if a weapon was involved.

In New Mexico, felony charges are not eligible for expungement—convictions remain on your record permanently.
