Membership In An International Drug Trafficking Ring Defense Attorney Rhode Island

Have You Been Arrested on a Rhode Island Criminal Membership In An International Drug Trafficking Ring Charge?

Being a member of an international drug ring could mean the Federal Court becoming involved. In fact, this is mandatory, and the toughest penalties are imposed.

Membership in drug dealings is akin to other crimes, and as such, it’s typically punished to the fullest extent of the law. Even so, an accused party could have simply been at the wrong place, at the wrong time.

If you’ve been accused of Membership In An International Drug Trafficking Ring, contact the Island law offices as soon as possible.

Definition of Membership In An International Drug Trafficking Ring:

The Uniform Controlled Substances Act, under Rhode Island Code Chapter 21-28, monitors the use of certain drugs and prescription medicines. There are independent charges for those found in possession of, or manufacturing drugs.

In other instances, if the prosecution delivers a strong argument that a defendant was a co-conspirator or member of an international drug trafficking ring, the fines and penalties are even greater.

Some of these controlled substances or drugs may include one or more of the following:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroine
  • LSD
  • Marijuana
  • Oxicontin
  • Steroids
  • Methamphetamine
  • Hydracone

A serious crime such as drug trafficking membership in Rhode Island, needs a skilled lawyer. Especially with several crackdowns taking place with the U.S. State Attorney’s Office.

Don’t delay. Contact John R. Grasso now.
