As the U.S. War on Drugs rages on, American media outlets have become fascinated with reporting the detrimental effects of drug trafficking. From the serious substance abuse epidemics, increases in crime and serious security threats at our nation's borders, it becomes clear that the drug market plays a role in creating more problems than addiction alone.

Why Is Drug Trafficking a Federal Charge?

The illegal drug and controlled substance industry is worth billions of dollars. In nearly every part of the United States, drug traffickers disperse their products throughout the nation. As a result, the American government and numerous law enforcement agencies are continuously locked in a battle that can be incredibly sophisticated, aggressive and ruthless. This is one of the primary reasons why crimes of drug trafficking are prosecuted as federal cases. If you or someone you know has been charged with drug trafficking, strong and attentive criminal defense representation is vital to the outcome of your case.

Defenses for Drug Trafficking Charges in Kansas

Challenging drug trafficking charges in Kansas is intricate and demanding, yet a proficient criminal defense attorney can investigate various potential defenses to contest the prosecution's case and safeguard your rights.

  • Lack of Knowledge or Intent: One of the most common defenses is to argue that you were unaware of the presence of the drugs or that you did not intend to distribute them. If you can demonstrate that you had no knowledge of the drugs or that they were for personal use, this could weaken the prosecution's case.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If the drugs were acquired by law enforcement through an unlawful search and seizure without a valid warrant or probable cause, the evidence could be suppressed and considered inadmissible in court, potentially resulting in the dismissal of the charges.
  • Entrapment: If you can prove that law enforcement officers induced or encouraged you to commit the drug trafficking offense that you would not have otherwise committed, you may be able to raise an entrapment defense.
  • Insufficient Evidence: Challenging the sufficiency of the evidence against you and questioning the credibility of witnesses and informants can also be effective defenses in drug trafficking cases.
  • Chain of Custody Issues: It is also possible to demonstrate mishandling or tampering with evidence by questioning the integrity of the chain of custody of the drugs seized.
  • Violation of Constitutional Rights: If your constitutional rights were violated during the arrest, interrogation, or search and seizure process, this could be grounds for having the evidence against you suppressed and the charges dismissed.
