Anchorage Drug Trafficking Attorneys
Consequences for Sales and Trafficking in Alaska
The penalties for your drug crime depends on multiple factors including the amount of drugs found, the kind of drugs found, the intent to sell or use, and if you have a previous criminal record. It is important to note that drug trafficking and drug sales are the same crime in Alaska, with drug trafficking generally charged as a more serious federal drug crime involves larger quantities of drugs. The associated penalties for a conviction are quite severe.
If you are found guilty for drug trafficking, punishments can include:
- Fines – State drug sale convictions can generally come with fines of $25,000 to $100,000 or more, while federal convictions for trafficking can surpass $10 million.
- Prison – Even though it may be your first offense, drug trafficking convictions can result in a prison sentence that lasts for 5 years, but in most cases, sentences can be from 10 years to life.
- Forfeiture of Assets – It may be mandatory for offenders to forfeit any assets, money, and properties acquired in connection with the drug trafficking conviction.
