Defending You From Severe Drug Trafficking Charges In South Carolina

It’s dauting to face drug trafficking charges, but you are not alone when you have me on your team. I am William Yarborough, a Greenville criminal defense attorney with more than 25 years of experience. Previously, I served as an Assistant U.S. District Attorney and a public defender.

Having served the Midlands and upstate region for decades, I understand the complexities of your situation. My practice is devoted to safeguarding your rights and securing a favorable outcome for your case. If you’re charged with serious drug crimes, including federal offenses, it’s crucial to have me on your side.

Understanding Drug Trafficking Charges

Drug trafficking is not merely the act of selling drugs or transporting them across state lines. It also constitutes crimes involving controlled substances that surpass the weight limits in South Carolina. The weight of the controlled substances involved determines the severity of the charges against you. The higher the weight of the drugs involved, the harsher the charge – and the sentence.

The Serious Nature Of Drug Trafficking Crimes

Drug trafficking stands as one of the most serious drug offenses due to its implications and potential sentences. South Carolina has stringent laws and the penalties of a conviction are life-altering. Consequences can vary greatly, but here are some common sentences:

  • Prison terms of more than one year
  • Fines of thousands of dollars
  • Mandatory minimum incarceration sentences
  • Forfeiture of assets
  • Permanent offenses on your criminal record
  • Supervised probation

These penalties can harm your career, educational options and housing options forever. That’s why having a dedicated criminal defense attorney is imperative. I work tirelessly to protect your legal rights throughout the process, negotiate a plea bargain if optional and defend you in court tenaciously.
