Trafficking Controlled Substances

In Kentucky, trafficking of controlled substances is generally charged as a Class C felony, punishable by 5-10 years in prison and up to $10,000 fine.  A second or subsequent offense is a Class B felony.  It can also be charged as a Class D felony if there is less than the prescribed amounts.  For exmaple, 4 grams of cocaine, 2 grams of heroin or methamphetamine, 10 dosageu unites of a narcotic drug are all considered the "prescribed amounts" which elevate the trafficking from Class C to Class D felonies. KRS 218A/.1412 outlines Trafficking in controlled substance in first degree.  KRS 218A.1413 outlines Trafficking of 2nd degree is a Class D felony with maximum sentenct of 3 years even though typically class D felonies are 1-5.  Trafficking 3rd degree as stated in KRS 218A.1414 is misdemeanor trafficking for some non-narcotic prescriptions and marijuana.  This is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months in mail. If you have been charged with trafficking of anything, it is a SERIOUS OFFENSE.  Contact an attorney to protect your rights and represent you in this matter.  In Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati* and Federal* Court, call the Bouldin Law Firm and speak to Michael Bouldin. Email at [email protected] or call 859-581-6453 (581-MIKE).  Don't go to court without an attorney. *Ohio and Federal laws differ from Kentucky.  The above is based on Kentucky statutes and not Ohio.  Call if questions about Federal or Ohio laws.
