NORMAN DRUG TRAFFICKING DEFENSE ATTORNEYS
Representing Clients throughout Seminole & Cleveland Counties
While drug trafficking is often defined as the sale and distribution of illegal substances, Oklahoma's Trafficking in Illegal Drugs Act takes a broader approach.
Under this act, distributing, manufacturing, cultivating, and even possessing certain quantities of drugs can be considered trafficking. The act also addresses possession of any controlled substance intended to be used to make another controlled substance and covers soliciting a minor to manufacture or distribute an illegal substance.
If you have been charged with trafficking a controlled dangerous substance, you probably do not need anyone to tell you that your freedom and future are on the line. Whether you are charged in state or federal court, and even if you are a first-time offender, the penalties for many such drug offenses can include years, decades, or life in prison.
What you do need — as soon as possible — is counsel from an experienced Norman drug trafficking defense lawyer with the knowledge and resources to handle your case effectively. At Nichols Dixon, you will work with a lawyer who has both prosecuted and defended serious drug cases. We are here to stand by your side and get you through this. Be aware that the evidence is not always as strong as it seems. If, however, the evidence against you is strong or insurmountable, our attorneys will do everything possible to negotiate manageable consequences that leave you hope for the future.

Quantity Is Critical
The quantity of drugs plays a critical role in these cases. There is no uniform amount of illegal substance that constitutes trafficking; it varies depending on the substance. As little as five ounces of crack can lead to drug trafficking charges, whereas pounds of marijuana are required to escalate a lesser drug charge to the level of trafficking.
Furthermore, the law distinguishes that the substance need not be composed of 100% illegal drugs. As long as there is any detectable amount of illegal drugs in the substance, it can lead to a trafficking charge. For example, if someone is allegedly found with 10 ounces of heroin, but the heroin is cut substantially with other materials, those other materials may not mitigate the trafficking charge.
We Are Diligent in Our Investigations
What all of this means is that you need a lawyer who is diligent about reviewing evidence and the manner in which it has been handled, tested, and weighed by law enforcement. Our experience means we know what to look for to find flaws in the evidence. Our Norman drug trafficking defense attorneys will never hesitate to request that it be thrown out if it is flawed or if it was obtained illegally.
